Wirecraft, Volume 2 is a continuation of the effort I started in
early 1997. Volume 1 was issued May 14, 1997 and revised November

a pronged pendant.

greatly appreciate the input I have received from Mimi Murray. Not
only has she continued to share designs with me, but she has critiqued
some of my procedures and she has provided valuable suggestions
for improvement. The Boxed Oval Cabochon Pendant design in this
book is one I learned from Mimi.
I appreciate the time Beverly Johnson spent with me reviewing how
she makes pronged pendants and rings. Based on those discussions,
I have made significant changes in my directions for a pronged pendant.
who have shared designs with me include Melvane Scott who first
taught me how to wrap a shark's tooth. I was inspired by a Miniature
Picture design developed by Preston Kemp to write the Picture Frame
procedure. Also, I learned the Arrow Bracelet, Dangle Earrings and
Butterfly Pin designs from students in classes taught by Otto Glass,
Shelly Nidetz and Jean Eberle. The design for the Practice Bracelet
is based on one made by Mary-Alice Philman in one of my classes
when we were practicing wrapping with square wire before making
a pronged pendant. Other designs in the book are mine.
