    Fabulous!!

    This book has got to be added to the library of every mailler or wannabe mailler out there! The pictures are outstanding - you can see each step. The detailed instructions make even the hardest of weaves understandable. For the beginning student, each section starts with an easy weave and then progresses to intermediate, advanced and expert. The beauty of this is that you are able to learn each weave (or review it) then go on to more difficult, intrecate variations. You'll feel like an expert in no time! The first chapter provides so much useful information for people who are new to chainmaille or to those who have been weaving for a while. By far, this is the best chainmaille book I have ever seen.

    Exquisite! - Buy even if you are a beginner.

    I was just getting into chain maille jewelery when I bought this book for my Ipad. It is very helpful, illustrations are great, and the jewelry is gorgeous. I have received nothing but compliments on all the pieces I have made from this book. I even skipped ahead in the book (I was really eager to continue to the harder pieces) and finished one of the bracelets in a weekend. I hope Rebeca Mojica comes out with another book soon!

    Very easy to follow

    Excellent pictures help you complete each project. It even shows variations, so yours don't have to look like the ones in the pictures. I like how she includes ring sizes for precious metals and base metals.

    A disappointment

    It's not actually the book that is the problem. It is the summary of the book. This is why I dislike buying books online. I can't look inside before I buy it, so an inaccurate description creates problems. In looking for chain mail books, I'm more interested in the traditional weaves, not contemporary ones, or contemporary takes on traditional weaves. Also, it's a bit misleading on the contents. The number of projects is inflated by numerous variations on a theme, some of which are so basic that an explanation is not really needed to get there. My opinion is that this book is aimed at newbies and at people who want to make ring jewelry, not chain mail.

    Great book for people starting out

    I like this book a lot. This lady definitely knows what she is talking about and makes complacated weaves easy. If you are thimking about starting to chain mail you should get this book and go through all the projects. Make shirt after that will be a breeze. Well the linking part anyway, tailoring is a different story.
