For her latest book, bestselling author Linda Jones has created 30 imaginative, contemporary-looking designs that are both quick and easy to make.
Bead and wire jewelry is one of the fastest-growing crafts, with more and more people discovering the joys of making unique, hand-crafted pieces every year. In these recession-hit times, Linda Jones demonstrates how almost anything—from old buttons and broken necklaces, to pebbles picked up on a stroll along the beach, and even household staples such as washers, bolts, and plumbing chain—can be transformed into graphic, stylish pieces of jewelry that won’t break the bank. Eye-catching and fashionable, with something to suit all ages and tastes: this is bling on a budget!
Linda Jones trained at the Metropolitan University, London, specializing in enamelling. She began teaching wire jewelry eight years ago, and now runs creative wire workshops from her studio in Kent. Linda is the author of seven books on the subject of wire jewellery, all published by CICO Books. The author is based in Tonbridge, Kent, UK.
