  • Handmade
  • Materials: 160 page printed book, personally signed by author

Purchase an autographed copy of the third published book directly from the author. With this 160-page book, you will learn how to craft 36 geometric and organic jewelry designs from earrings and pendants to bracelets and necklaces.

The third book Chain and Bead Jewelry Geometric Connections (2010), combines metal rings and gemstone beads in unique ways. This user-friendly handbook covers the basics of hand tools, metal wire, gemstone beads, and aspect ratio precise jump ring sizes to make a dozen chain patterns. Clear illustrations are given for the essential techniques needed for assembling jump rings, setting beads, forging S-clasps, and bending identical earring backs.

These skills will be put into practice as Byzantine chain sections are assembled into the Beaded Romanov and Serrated designs. A Byzantine derivative, known as the Tripoli formation, will be used as the base element for building complex geometric shapes. Three Tripoli are combined into the Incan Triangle Pendant, four Tripoli into the Flower Quatrefoil formation, and then five Tripoli into the Pentagon designs. The book concludes with a series of organic designs that include the 6-pointed Snowflake and elusive Butterfly pendant.

Authentic Book Review: Another remarkable book by a remarkable author and craftsman
“Scott Plumlee’s writing style gives you the feeling he is in the room with you. Directions are exceptionally clear and concise, including superb pictures and illustrations. Whenever, I have question about wire work or chain maille techniques, I go to Scott’s book. Definitely a book to add to your library because it covers the basics and makes the more advanced techniques clear enough for beginners to follow.” – Chris at Amazon

I purchased 3 of this author’s 5 books from Etsy and they are fantastic. Gorgeous high color close up photos of each step and clearly written instructions. I love that the books follow a logical sequence with each piece building on the skills used in the prior piece. I can’t wait to work my way through all 4 books and eventually “graduate” to the 5th book that requires soldering. The seller is responsive and the books shipped quickly and were packaged in thick padded envelopes to prevent damage. The seller offered a small discount after my first purchase which enticed me back to get more of the series. Highly recommended!
