Ancient Wire -
an illustrated guide to making intricate jewelry in the manner of the Vikings and other ancient cultures


This book will not only show you how to create chains in the style sometimes known as Viking wire weaving, Viking chain knitting, or Viking knit, but how to finish them, and also how to create other items such as rings and hollow ovals


Ancient Wire II
An illustrated guide to making jewelry from Viking, Roman and other ancient cultures - including example artifacts


This book will show you how to make jewelry designs that have been around for over 1000  years - timeless items that are still beautiful today.  Photographs of artifacts that I own, along with detailed measurements of them are included in this book.  I hope this will help those wishing to recreate historical jewelry.  No heat or flame is required for any of these designs and most of the tools are portable.
