Format: Paperback
This book teaches you how to make just about any kind of chain you can imagine, taking you through step-by-step examples and hints and tips. Each chain is accompanied by a large photo of a finished piece, and a list of materials you need. Step by step, instructions are interwoven with beautiful illustrations & diagrams.
The chains range from a simple belcher chain to highly beautiful chains using multiple links. All can be constructed with the minimum of equipment. This book is very clear and well presented as a series of discrete projects. Apart from chains, the knowledge you will learn is highly valuable for any jeweller with hints and tips on soldering, filing and cutting. This is a great resource for any jeweller and silversmith; it is a handy and beautiful and clear introduction to the beginner. A beautiful book. Every silversmith should have a copy.

Love this book ,have done quite a bit of jewellery with silver and gemstones, so this book is just perfect for learning to make my own silver chains. It is a thorough well laid out book that takes you from a simple trace chain to more complex chains. The scope of the book is ideal if you have not made chains before , however if you are looking for more advanced chains this is not the book to choose. The book leaves no stone unturned and the detail and information is excellent.
