Reviews

Wire and metalwork is currently a very popular craft and there is an array of books on the subject, each offering their own inspirational ideas. Here, American Jana Ewy offers her metalcraft designs, several with a cross-Atlantic twist, in a well laid-out, easy to understand book. Fully illustrated with colour photographs showing both the finished project and step-by-step instructions, this is a colourful insight into how metalcraft can enhance your home and garden. Candle holders, place mats and trinket boxes offer personal touches for presents or ornaments while ladybugs, pet stakes and dragonflies can enhance your garden and give it extra interest. From simple wire mesh to embellished sheets of metal, bead and wirework, aging and distressing, the techniques are clearly and simply explained, making this an ideal guide for both novices and the more practiced craftsperson alike. - Lucy Watson
