    ITEM#: 12975408

    GIOVANNA IMPERIA is a fine craft jeweler whose work has been exhibited and included in both private and museum collections around the world. A former artist-in-residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, she has been teaching kumihimo workshops since 2001. She posts information about her classes and workshops at giovannaimperiadesigns.com.
    In ancient Japan, beautiful yet functional cords made with the traditional braiding art of kumihimo adorned everything from kimonos to samurai armor to prayer scrolls. In Kumihimo Wire Jewelry, innovative jewelry artist Giovanna Imperia offers a fresh twist on this time-honored technique, adapting it to create stunning wire jewelry.

    In addition to a concise history of kumihimo and an overview of its essential materials, tools, and techniques, readers will learn the basics of this braiding method, plus how to create 20 striking projects--stylish bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces--all supported with detailed, step-by-step instructions and illustrations.

    This comprehensive book, which also includes pieces by prominent kumihimo jewelry artists from around the world, will inspire jewelry makers, beaders, and wireworkers at all skill levels to take their craft in a vibrant new direction.

    • For the advanced Kumihimo artist
      Verified Purchase

      This book is a terrific resource for the advanced kumihimo artist. It takes in depth reading and practice to create the woven pieces out of wire. I would use a harder surface loom instead of a foam loom, since these always come with a caution to not use wire on them.
