Silver chains are the backbone of any jewelry collection and these distinctive designs have those special handmade touches that machine-made jewelry just can't match--magnificent hammered silver, intriguingly complex links, and common motifs twisted into charming patterns. And anyone can craft them, with this extensively illustrated introduction that explains all the basics, from link formation to soldering and polishing. There's additional information on pivots and joinery, and even how to consider the effect of gravity on the finished piece as it rests on the body. Try the Geometric Chain, comprised of varied wire forms that rest in the crooks of their neighboring links, or the Spine design, which utilizes flattened wire and unique pivoting joinery. A gallery of contemporary chains provides inspiration.
