By adapting and building on the traditional Byzantine chain configuration, Scott creates unique collections of earrings, bracelets and necklaces, from three-sided Tripoli to the four-sided Quatrefoil to the five-sided Pentagon, plus innovative Organic designs, including fish, five- and six- pointed snowflakes, and a butterfly.
The thorough "Chain and Bead Basics" chapter, which guides readers through all the essential tools and techniques, makes it easy for beginners to re-create these stunning pieces.
"Who knew that little old jump rings--when linked together just so--could turn into spectacular pieces of jewelry art? Chain mail expert Scott David Plumlee breaks down the byzantine chain, Tripoli formations, triangle formations, quatrefoil and trapezoid formations, and lots more--but if you're getting cold sweats thinking about high school geometry, just know that you're in gentle, capable hands." --Bead Design Studio Magazine
