Fabulous Woven Jewelry: Plaiting, Coiling, Knotting, Looping & Twining with Fiber & Metal
Award-winning fiber artist Mary Hettmansperger reveals the secrets of using traditional basketry techniques to create 28 striking pieces of jewelry. It’s a new and exciting approach that yields remarkable results–even for beginners. She covers four basic procedures–plaiting, knotting, looping, and twining–and incorporates materials such as copper, colorful wire, natural fibers, even bottle tops and bark.
The array of projects includes soft-fiber necklaces as well as one made from looped linen over a forged silver mold: small retro pins, bright and colorful in twined pattern shaped; and a variety of pieces made from wire twisted with beads. There’s no other book like it, and it’s sure to appeal to a diverse range of crafters.
Contains some beautiful basket necklaces that could be made to use as medicine bags.
