PUBLISHER REVIEWS: REVIEW: Helene Jacobs, author of the "Ancient Wire" series, specializes in recreating ancient jewelry from many different cultures. She gives her readers detailed instructions for creating ancient jewelry and shows them where they can learn more about the history of the pieces. As she finds new information on the artifacts in her books, Helene updates her website. Helene has been researching history for over 30 years and has received several awards from a worldwide historical organization. At the request of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Helene created a replica of a 2500 year old necklace from the Mysterious Bog People exhibit. Helene has always had a passion for creating, figuring things out and teaching. As soon as she discovered techniques to make beautiful jewelry simply, she began teaching classes. Her class handout evolved into her first book, Ancient Wire, an instructional book for creating chains and other items of jewelry with the method variously known as Viking wire weaving, Viking chain knitting or Viking knit. "Ancient Wire II" followed, demonstrating how to make timeless items that are still beautiful today, but were originally created over 1000 years ago. These books will be joined by other books in the Ancient Wire series. After traveling extensively with her military family, Helene settled in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and fluffy dog, where she likes to relax with her friends over a good cup of coffee, and update her blog with her various crafty endeavors. Though it takes just a few tools to make the jewelry described in her books, Helene has an embarrassingly large collection of pliers. REVIEW: TABLE OF CONTENTS: Introduction. 1.

PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: This book is a follow up to “Ancient Wire” also written by Helene Jacobs It is an illustrated guide to making jewelry from Viking, Roman, and other ancient cultures. Examples of artifacts are included. It covers the materials, tools, and techniques for making beaded oval earrings, coiled earrings, double spiral ring, knot ring, C bracelet, S link chain and folded dangles, glass bead pendant, and a triple loop pin. Helene Jacobs has researched this craft and has an extensive set of black and white pictures and directions for reproducing jewelry in the tradition of the Vikings and other cultures. REVIEW: For years I searched for a method to make my own jewelry without having to work with heat and fire, or to buy expensive tools. When I learned of this method of making beautiful, intricate chains, I was completely enchanted. The materials can be readily purchased and the tools required are few and not cumbersome, so this is a very portable craft. This book will not only show you how to create chains in the manner known as Viking Knitting, Viking Wire Weaving or Viking Chain Knitting, but how to finish them, and also how to create other items such as rings and hollow ovals. REVIEW: This book will show you how to create and finish chains, rings, hollow ovals and encased glass beads using the technique sometimes referred to as Viking Wire Weaving or Viking Chain Knitting. Good imaging, clear concise instructions. Recommended. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: I do quite a lot of jewelry making but wanted a way to provide my own 'chain' for pendants and so on. This little book does everything I need. The instructions are fairly easy to follow although sometimes it's a bit hard to tell which is the working end of the wire from the photos, but the photos are good enough that study and experimentation allowed me to work out what was what. The process is not quick but I think this will be one of my traveling projects as the equipment you need is small and simple and none of the necessary tools take up much room. If you already do beading or other jewelry making you probably have all the essentials. I liked the fact that Helene gave instructions on how to make simple extra tools that you need for this way of working eg, a draw plate, I made my own and it really was easy. I've really enjoyed experimenting - and you need to because in some cases there's not much explanation of how to move on from the basics to the more complex, eg., from a three loop handle to a five or six loop handle. Having said that I had no problem working it out once I'd mastered the basics. If you've done any kind of wire work or beading you'll have no trouble following what's going on. If you're a complete beginner this is a great way to learn a skill that ends up with a really complex looking product that is actually very easy to create. Projects are included but only in a very loose way that allows you to make the project your own. I'll be buying Helen's second book when I've worked my way through all the projects in this one. REVIEW: Great book to have if you love working with wire. Some great ideas to incorporate into other crafts as well using wire and beads. REVIEW: I have done a limited amount of jewelry making and metal working but this seems to be a good book that shows you how to use wire and create jewelry made with wire. I have yet to try to make any of the example shown in the book but it seems well written and illustrated. REVIEW: Well detailed with photos. Explicit instruction. Using a wire product called Parawire makes working the wire easier and less expensive. Parawire protects their lovely colors. REVIEW: I had to go on a trip and took the book to look at. I ended up reading it from cover to cover without having the supplies to do the projects. It is quite easy to follow and understand. I'm looking forward to my first project. REVIEW: Good illustrations show how materials can be made into anything your imagination leads you to. The pictures make the instructions very easy to follow. REVIEW: I love this technique and plan on incorporating this idea into my designs. REVIEW: Well done explanations and instructions. REVIEW: Five stars! A real little treasure! REVIEW: Excellent book with lots of information. REVIEW: I can't wait to get to work with it! Very well done and very well explained. I know it will be a pleasure. REVIEW: Thank you! I am enjoying your book and picking up lots of tips! I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insured shipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
