Chain And Bead Jewelry Creative Connections

Far from its original utilitarian use--to create armor--the chain-mail technique has been adapted over time to create beautiful, unique jewelry. In "Chain and Bead Jewelry Creative Connections," chain-mail expert Scott David Plumlee shows jewelry makers, beaders, and crafters at all skill levels how to incorporate beads into a variety of chain-mail weaves to create showstopping pieces. First, Plumlee walks readers through basic skills and provides detailed information on traditional chain designs. He then presents more than 20 wire-wrapping and bead-setting techniques that incorporate beads seamlessly into a variety of designs, from the creative "Chaos" wire-wrapped bead to the sinuous Snake. With step-by-step instructions for assembling age-old chain patterns--from simple to complex--and gorgeous designs that can be executed using only simple hand tools, "Chain and Bead Jewelry Creative Connections" is sure to inspire jewelry artisans at all levels to expand the creative possibilities of their work.
