This is the seventh book in the series I started in 1997 when I began teaching wirecrafts. I have written on Advanced Wirecraft book per year since then, plus a Beginning Wirecraft book in 1998.

This year has been as especially exciting one as I was the featured artist in the May, 2002 issue of the Wire Artist magazine. Yates and I enjoyed our trip to Canada to photograph the project as it was being made, and the time we spent there with Helen and Becky Goga and Alan Gooding.

I appreciate the many people who have shared designs with me, as well as those who have asked for specific procedures to be included in this book.

Betsy Goldman shared the Donut Pendant design with me. I first saw a Grooved Dichroic Pendant similar to the one in the book a number of years ago which was made by Sue Shrader, but I do not know the source of this design. The Flag Earrings are based on a flag pin designed by Rowan Rose, while the 100 Bead Bracelet procedure is based on one taught at a bead shop in Florida. I based the Heart Bracelet procedure on one Otto Glass teaches in his classes.

The Greek Necklace is based on one I bought last year at a local Greek festival, while the Long Abstract earrings are based on ones I bought at a boutique in the 1970's. The Earrings with Chain Tassels procedure is based on earrings I saw while I was at school. Again, I do not know the source of this design.

Several of the procedures in the book are based on classic designs. These include the Amber Pendant, the Bracelet with Beads, the Ring with Small Cabochons and the Gift Box. Other designs are mine. However, all of the procedures in this book were written by me, and the techniques described are ones I use in making jewelry.
