Purchase the digital eBook copy of the fourth published book directly from the author, which is delivered as three PDF files. However, if you would like to purchase an autographed copy of the printed book; it is also available on Etsy. With this 80-page book, you will learn how to create 20 spine-tingling jewelry projects designed to take your craftsmanship to the next level of silversmithing.


The fourth book Chain and Bead Jewelry Soldering Connections (2011), invites the reader to go beyond cold-connected chain patterns and overcome their fear of the flame with a variety of 'soldering optional' jewelry designs. This informative book explains all the tools and materials needed for simplified silver soldering with large diameter jump rings that spiral into dimensional patterns.

Step-by-step illustrations are given for using a hand-held butane torch and modern Argentium silver solder paste in a syringe, along with detailed solutions for common soldering problems. These skills will be put into practice with a series of jewelry projects that slowly increase in complexity from the 5-ring Mobius pattern to the 20-ring Spiral Ball designs.

We will then use a hot torch to heat the tip of Argentium silver wire to produce a teardrop-shaped termination, to create a series of Teardrop within Loop jewelry designs. This concept will slowly increase in complexity from the geometric Triad design to the hammer-forged Arch pattern, and finally embellished with the US dollar bill for the Money earrings and bracelet.

Authentic Book Review: Spine-tingling Jewelry Designs
“This is Scott’s 4th book and his goal is for you to overcome your fear of the flame with his user-friendly method. Learn to solder silver, bronze, copper, and gold jump rings into stunning beaded chain jewelry designs with a renowned book author and workshop instructor.

This book is a user-friendly approach for soldering metal jump rings and Argentium headpins. It contains essential techniques like making your own jump rings and ball head pins, and a extensive section on soldering tools. He explains the difference between a butane and a propane torch and what each is best suited for. There are excellent step out pictures for common soldering problems and how to fix them.

Once you learn how to make your own ball head pins, there is a great illustrated diagram and instructions on how to make two identical ear wires. If you have never used a torch before, this book will make it seem less scary. Scott tells in detail about the best wire to use for the soldering task. Then the project section is separated into two chapters, spiral and tear-loop and WOW! The spiral projects are all stunning and unique chain maille designs and the tear-loop are done with ball head pins.

There are things in there I have never seen done before by anyone. There is a really cool money bracelet you must see…made with REAL dollar bills! That in itself is worth the purchase of the book. I know all the projects will be comfortable to wear and make the most unique gifts that you will treasure always.

Even if you don’t do your own soldering for these projects you can still make all of them. The projects don’t require that you do your own soldering; this book just encourages you to, and shows you how step-by-step. It’s like have Scott right next to you teaching you himself.” – Jeannie K Dukic 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!
