Bead on a Wireby Sharilyn Miller is my favorite wire book. I love looking at her designs. She is an exceptional teacher and writer. Her instructions are very clear and easy to follow. She offers suggestions on which tools to use, wire and their different charateristics. Her turtorials are specific and have step by step pictures from start to end. The only thing you will need is patience and a desire to learn. I have the desire, but sometimes my patience runs thin, but that's not a reflection of Sharilyn Miller, that's all me.
