Overview

Chain mail is one of the hottest jewelry trends out there; add beads and the style positively sizzles. Who could resist? Bestselling author and chain mail expert Dylon Whyte presents his time-tested, time-saving techniques with more than 30 breathtaking projects, ranging from extremely simple to challenging.
A thorough introduction, illustrated with computer-generated pictures, covers the basics of chain mail techniques. Then Whyte reveals his patented, perfected beading method: rather than using difficult wire-wrapping, he threads the beads directly onto the rings before they’re fashioned into chain mail.
The exciting collection of 30 projects includes a delicate Persian patterned anklet, embellished with tiny silver bells; an amethyst opera-length necklace; and silver earrings shaped like inverted peacock feathers, edged with rings and turquoise beads.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A gorgeous primer on doing jewelry-quality chain mail pieces. The introduction is well written and covers the tools you'll be using and the materials and how best to pick beads to design jewelry with. The focus of this book is using pre-made jump rings, and (the author) provides sources and sizes for all the projects in the book. He explains basic chain mail weaves and techniques. The projects are lovely. You will need to read the instructions as well as look at the diagrams, but he has color-coded the diagrams to show which rings are closed, which you're adding, and which rings are from the previous step. Some of the simplest projects, built around plain cable chains are stunning and success with those will give you the confidence to go to a more difficult project. My favorite projects in the book range in difficulty: the very easy and wearable Gypsy Cuff Earrings; the slightly more difficult Möbius Knot Bail; and the definitely-have-to-take-it-on-step-at-a-time Bronze Age Bolo tie, which features a Byzantine weave chain and a donut bezeled in chain mail. I know a lot of people have been very interested in chain mail lately, and this book is a nice one to add to your library if you've ever had an interest in making chain mail jewelry, or if you simply want to be able to make your own chains." - BellaOnline

    Not quite what I was looking for.

    This book isn't quite what I was looking for. I was looking for something with more chain mail weaves than what was in it, but it is a very good book.

    Outstanding instructions

    I've tried most all of the projects in this book and every one was written in such a way to make the construction of the project as simple as could be! Well written and the reference areas are terrific! Thank you!!!
