Description

Adding just a few embellishments to traditional chain mail weaves results in eye-catching, on-trend jewelry any woman can wear.Chain Mail Plus offers 20 projects with clear, easy-to-follow photos and step-by-step instructions that make it easy to understand exactly how to weave each piece.

An introduction to materials and tools helps beginners get off to a strong start. The projects are organized by jewelry type: Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and jewelry sets. Most projects can be completed in a weekend, even by beginning jewelry makers.

The projects use a variety of traditional chain mail weaves, but the focus is on incorporating popular, easy-to-find embellishments to make each piece unique: Swarovski bicones, pearls, and briolettes; TierraCast charms and fancy links; semi-precious gemstone beads; and leather, ribbon, and varied types of chain. Sidebars provide alternate designs and color variations, and tips and hints throughout the book help jewelry makers achieve a professional, polished finish.
