Description: In this book, Yvonne Kulagowski considers issues of design and aesthetics and offers practical information about choosing metals and materials, techniques, and using different tools and equipment. She covers a wide range of topics, including styles and materials as they relate to wearability and high fashion. She also discusses the exciting world of fashion shows and catwalk collections and earrings made exclusively for theatre productions and exhibitions.
When making earrings or any other "two-of-a kind" pieces with wire, you can save yourself considerable time by making both pieces at one time. Just lay your wires side-by-side and tape them together at both ends. Then, use your pliers to work the wires into the desired shape. When you've achieved the result you're looking for, remove the tape and voila! You now have two perfectly matched pieces that took you half the time it would normally have taken.
