    CHAIN MAIL, Not just for bikers anymore!

    This is the second book by Scott Plumlee and it's full of original designs. Scott has created new and interesting ways of putting wire and beads together to create one of a kind jewelry.

    I had the pleasure of seeing an advanced copy of this book when I took a class with Scott at the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee.

    Like his first book, it's packed with tons of helpful information for the novice. For those who already know the basics this book will show you new and wonderful variations to create that one of a kind piece. The directions are easy to follow and they're accompanied with detailed pictures of what to do. He also talks about tools and materials that can help you to accomplish the perfect piece.

    He's a wonderful and patient teacher and he didn't hesitate to take the time and sit with anyone who was having trouble in his class. We all left the class with our beautiful bracelets featured in his new book. I pre ordered my copy at the class and can't wait until it arrives so I can get started on one of the several projects I plan on doing.

    I feel his first book,Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry: Techniques for Creating Dimensional Necklaces and Bracelets, is also a MUST HAVE for anyone looking to learn about making chain mail. A visit to his web site, www.davidchain.com, will show you several of the pieces in his second book and maybe even what he's got up his sleeve for his third book!
