Jewelry artists will enjoy a collection of new, less-common weaves and challenging projects that
will inspire and educate.
Author Karen Karon begins by reviewing basic chain maille weaves in order to set the stage for the more complex weaves in this book. She explains techniques needed when working beyond the basics: methods for closing a weave, working with micro
rings, working large scale, and using alternative materials in weaves.
The book is then divided into 4 sections, each devoted to a particular type of weave. Sprinkled throughout the illustrated
step-by-step instructions for each weave technique are valuable tips from Karen to help ensure a
beautiful finished piece.
