If you want to know lots about wireworking with copper, GET THIS BOOK! This is one of the better illustrated and explained books I have purchased. It covers virtually all the wire bending techniques I can think of, and Ms. Irish has the steps listed and photographed in the simplest way, making it easy for me to accomplish similar items. I love this book!
