Heavy ironwork meets delicate filigree! Get a collection of over 20 beautiful wire projects and learn exciting techniques for endless possibilities.
by ParaWire team member Jodi Bombardier
Inspired by the ironwork so prevalent in her native Tucson, Jodi Bombardier fashions her signature heavy gauge wire frames into sinuous shapes, cold-joining them with fine wire to form open, lacy filigree patterns.
Jodi focuses on technique, including the correct ways to use tools, hold wire, and create shaped wire frames consistently and precisely. She teaches how to create airy pieces that are still strong and stable enough to withstand daily wear. The projects increase in complexity as the book progresses and the reader builds confidence in filigree.
In addition to providing project instructions, Jodi demonstrates how scrolled designs can be manipulated, joined, or rearranged to create endless variations hampered only by the imagination.
