Big Wire & Big Bead Chokers - PDF Ebook
Dare to be simple! The time has come for a different look in necklace design.
I am now making necklaces with much thicker wire and larger beads, made to be worn as chokers. Working with wire in these proportions means making a few changes. You will be looking for beads with reasonably large holes, but also finding ways to stabilize these beads. You will also find that the small round silver beads will not fit on different kinds of findings. Don't worry - I have already worked out most of the problems and will do my best to explain them to you.
