Wire Work Jewelry - Learning More
BooksThere are a lot of beginner-type beading books that cover wire & chain jewelry and have some project ideas in them. The one I learned jewelry making from is called Creative Bead Jewelry , which covers wirework, stringing, loomwork, and polymer clay - a good introduction to a number of different beading techniques.
If you want to get a bit fancier and focus only on wire/chain designs, check out Making Bead & Wire Jewelry: Simple Techniques, Stunning Designs.
Bead & Button Magazine is put out by Kalmbach Publishing and always has great projects for beaders, including a lot of projects with wire.
I've found this magazine to be one of the best sources of ongoing inspiration--they always have great projects and clear photos and instructions.
