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

Purchase an autographed copy of the second published book directly from the author. With this 160-page book, you will learn how to create 24 gorgeous jewelry projects designed to take your craftsmanship to the next level of silversmithing.


The fifth book Silver Soldering Simplified (2013), combines ancient chain designs with modern silversmithing techniques and fine-wire woven beading patterns to create unique jewelry projects. This user-friendly guidebook details all the tools and materials needed for simplified silver soldering with a hand-held butane torch and Argentium silver solder paste in a syringe, along with detailed solutions for common soldering problems.

We will explore weaving thin 24-gauge wire lengths into the large diameter soldered frames for the Peace Symbol series, and then slowly increase the design complexity by spiraling and soldering the ‘gravity-defying’ Propeller designs. The next level spirals multiple large diameter rings within an outer frame to create the Dharma Wheel formation, completed with wire-wrapped parachute cord technique. This book concludes by twisting a soldered oval into a Figure Eight frame between two mandrels to be embellished with a fine-wire woven beading pattern.

Authentic Book Review: Exceptionally well-done!
“If you want to learn how to do something RIGHT, learn from Scott David Plumlee. I learned how to chainmaille from his first book, and have been addicted ever since. I can’t say enough about his clear, concise, teaching skills. His technique is flawless. Learn from the best!” – Karolyn at Etsy

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!
