Book review: Classic Chain Mail Jewelry

 Classic Chain Mail Jewelry: A treasury of weaves


Are you interested in learning chain maille (or chain mail as the author of this book prefers)?  Classic Chain Mail Jewelry by Sue Ripsch may be just what you've been waiting for.  Beautifully clear color photos and step by step directions will guide you through each chain style and through each gorgeous project.  Because really, what's a technique without a project to show it off?

You really won't believe you eyes when you see how many different looks you can get from a pile of jump rings and a pair of pliers.  Thank you to Sue for the over 30 classically elegant projects, including bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.  I feel that this book, published by Kalmbach, is the perfect introduction to chain maille for those who long to give it a try.
