When I wrote my first book in 1997, I never expected to still be doing this a decade later. This book is the twelfth in the series which includes a beginning wirecraft book and eleven advanced books.

Gail Allen and Kathy Morris continued to support this effort. Gail provided editorial comments on all of the procedures in this book. Kathy designed and maintained the Web site which features my books. Both ladies have made my life so much easier.

As in past years, I am thankful for the people who were willing to share their designs with me. They include: Barbara Chadwick (Bracelet with Wire Bead), Dione Outlaw (Crystal Wrap and Bracelet for Lampwork Bead), Rowan Rose (Bracelet with Beaded Edge and Butterfly Bracelet), Gene Sheridan (Pendant with Curled Edge), Karen Smith (Winding Vines Bracelet), and Jan Stevens (Four-Loop Earrings).
Other designs in the book are either mine, or they are based on classical or commercial jewelry pieces. However, all of the procedures in this book were written and illustrated by me, and the techniques described are ones I use in making jewelry.

Many students in my classes this last year tested draft versions of these procedures. I appreciate their many helpful comments and suggestions.

Included after the Table of Contents are four pages of photographs of jewelry made based on the procedures in this book. I hope you will find them useful.

Please note, I almost always use half-hard wire (#2) in my jewelry. When I do use wire of another temper, I specify that in the procedure.

Any suggestions you have for improving this or my other books would be greatly appreciated. Also, please contact me if you have a design you are willing to share with me for a future book.
