  • 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 28 gorgeous jewelry projects, sure to inspire all levels of jewelry artisans to expand the creative possibilities of their work.

The second book Chain and Bead Jewelry Creative Connections (2009), takes the reader on a wire-wrapped, bead-embellished, and curiosity-fueled adventure. This elementary-level guide explains all the necessary background before we begin, from hand tools, metal types, round wire gauges, and aspect ratio precise jump ring sizes to make a dozen chain patterns.

We will explore the essential techniques you will need for assembling jump rings, setting gemstone beads with the Mandrel-tip Pliers, cold-forging an S-clasp, and bending identical earring backs from Argentium silver headpin wires. Next, we will discover wire-wrapping methods that progress from precise to chaos patterns with creative connections. Finally, we will assemble a dozen chain patterns seamlessly embellished with several bead-setting formulas to balance metal and gemstone.

Authentic Book Review: Chain Mailler’s Delight!
“Scott David Plumlee is an excellent teacher, and his book is big, lush and beautiful! The pictures are close-up, detailed and vivid, and there are so many to go along with every technique he is clearly explaining. He even delves into the inside diameter of a jump ring versus the wire diameter of a jump ring! He doesn’t let you make mistakes! His designs are gorgeous (I especially love his “chaos wire-wrapping”). I really highly recommend this book.” – Rather be at the Beach at Amazon

5 out of 5 stars

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!
