Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Karon, a Massachusetts-based metal artist, introduces the basic supplies and weave structures involved in making chain maille jewelry. The book is organized by weave type, and each chapter includes basic instructions, variations, and jewelry projects incorporating the weave. Some chain maille jewelry projects leave the wearer looking like an extra from a fantasy movie, but Karon's addition of beads and crystals add a more contemporary look to the classic styles. VERDICT This is an excellent introduction to the world of chain maille. Beginners should be able to teach themselves basic weaves and techniques; advanced jewelry makers can challenge themselves to learn some of the more difficult weaves, such as Jens Pind Linkage or Persian weaves.
