The third book, Chain and Bead Jewelry Geometric Connections was published by Watson-Guptill in November 2010. This instructive book utilizes a wide range of chain patterns and bead-setting techniques to create a variety of geometric and organic designs. We cover the basics of metal wire, gemstone beads, jump ring sizes, simple hand tools, and the essential techniques you'll need to master jump ring assembly; setting headpin beads, forging S-clasps, crafting magnetic clasps, and bending earring backs. These skills will be put into practice as Byzantine chain sections are assembled into Romanov pairs, offset Serrated (shown), and a Triple Byzantine chain patterns. We will then explore the three-pointed Tripoli formation, which will serve as the base component for the following geometric shape chapters. We will assemble three Tripolis into a Triangle (shown), then a Double Triangle, concluding with the beaded Incan Triangle design. Next we will use four Tripolis into a square Quatrefoil, unraveled into the Ocean design (cover), and trimmed into the Trapezoid series. Finally we will use five Tripolis into a Pentagon (shown), Double Pentagon, and Pentagram designs. Balancing the geometric is a final chapter of organic designs, assembling chain lengths into the Fish (shown), Snowflake, and the elusive Butterfly designs.

Real Customer Testimonials:

Great book for a new jewelery artist! My daughters and I are excited to make a few projects out of this book! I went online to his website and ordered the kits for earrings and a braclet set for one of the projects and am looking forward to completing them! I have not seen his first two books, but I can still complete the simplier designs in this book - just fine!! The book has a lot of step-by-step pictures for each project and goes into details about how he shines up his finished projects! We are looking forward to wearing our jewelery as soon as we make the earrings and bracelet! I would recommend this book to everyone! -Abstract Artist

This book is an excellent resource and teaching guide. The ideas and the descriptions given are clear and easy to understand. I bought the first book Scott David Plumlee wrote and was so pleased and excited about the ideas, new projects and gaining new information that prior to finishing the "Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry" I went on line and ordered the next set of books and again was not disappointed. He work is worth every dime. I have been making jewelry for many years and just became intrigued with Chain Mail in the past year. I have spent a great deal of time researching Chain Maille on line, at shows, reading jewelry magazines and buying books and normally I have been disappointed with the information provided or have found that the information has been lacking. You will find that Scott David Plumlee book's are clear and he is very generous with information, ideas and patterns. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I have. - Jo Longing

Pssst - are you still reading this? Wanna hear a joke? I swear its clean!
