Thanks to its exquisite, easily mastered techniques and elegant lines, chain mail—the classic art of linking metal rings—is enjoying a creative resurgence among jewelry makers. This attractive resource was the first full-color book on the market to help beginners and intermediates get in on the craze. With computer-generated illustrations that show every step, it thoroughly introduces all the key construction procedures, including the proper methods of winding, opening, and closing the metal rings. The 30 projects include a simple pendant encasing a large semiprecious stone and a flat chain-mail neckpiece that colorfully combines copper and blue titanium rings. Plus, there's advice on polishing the pieces, tips on adding pearls or beads, and a gallery of works by professional jewelers.
