I have really fallen in love with Kalmbach's "The Absolute Beginners Guide" series, and the most recent addition is no exception. Lauren Andersen has written Making Chain Mail Jewelry for the series, and if you've got chain maille on your list of techniques to master in 2014, this book is a great place to start. Check out this statement by Kalmbach: "Open. Close. It's that easy!" It is, yes, they are right. But in Lauren's capable hands, you see how opening and closing jump rings can become an art form!

So pick up your jump rings and two pair of pliers, and you'll be making chain maille jewelry in absolutely no time!
