35 8/18/10 12:38:12 PM How to Use this Book D I F F I C U LT Y A N D T I M E R AT I N G S I designed this book to appeal to both beginning and advanced students. The projects are divided into four chapters, each with a focus on a particular core weave or technique: Japanese, Byzantine, Helm and Coiled. Within each chapter, the projects generally progress in order of difficulty. Each project has a rating from one to four rings: 1 ring = Beginner Little to no prior knowledge required. 2 rings = Intermediate Knowledge of the core weave or technique for that chapter required.

Close the large aluminum ring. indd 50 8/18/10 12:41:38 PM 13 Double the large ring from Step 12. 14 Repeat Steps 12-13 all the way around the piece. 15 With the final small aluminum jump ring, connect the pendant bail to a pair of large aluminum rings. To make a pendant that is uniquely yours, vary the colors you use, or even the number of colors you use. For a special touch, you can also wrap crystal drop beads using the Wire Wrap technique on pages 32–34. Use a tiny jump ring to connect one wrapped bead to each of the 3 lower sets of large rings.

Conversions are usually approximate—I have tested them with my rings, but the piece is likely to behave slightly differently from the original project. Sizes will always be listed in the same order as in the original materials list; clasp ring sizes are often omitted. Alternate sizes are occasionally listed, should you wish to create a heftier or more delicate piece. Again, however, note that you may need to adjust the size ring needed based on how your supplier creates and measures rings. The final length is listed for bracelets and necklaces.
