"I love working with wire but can remember when it just plain intimidated me. I didn’t understand gauges, didn’t have the right hand tools, and would get kinks and run into all sorts of problems. What helped me was good old fashioned practice. And finding some jewelry projects that were interesting enough but not more than my skills could handle at the time. There’s still a lot more I’d like to learn about working with wire, and books with projects like these from Lark Crafts are such a big help. The book has 20 projects, a mix of bracelets, earrings, pins and necklaces with something for all skill levels. There’s an introductory section that explains how to work with wire and shows some basics like coils and wrapped loops. Some of the projects can be worked up fairly quickly, and others will take a little more time and practice. So, if you’d like to learn to work with wire or want to expand your wire working skills, grab this book, get some wire and simply get started." - The Bead Dreamer
"Simply Bead & Wire, Simply Charms, Simply Earrings, and Simply Necklaces each contain projects pulled from one or more of Lark’s beading titles. There are so many great projects in these books that I want to run pull out my bead stash and get to work! I especially love the elongated coin charm bracelet found in Simply Charms. If your budget is tight but you need some jewelry making inspiration, take a look at these titles from Lark. The price is right for each of these books — and the finished projects look like a million bucks!" - CraftGossip
