Building on the popularity of her best-selling Classic Chain Mail Jewelry, Sue Ripsch offers exciting new variations on many popular chain mail weaves that will tempt motivated beginners and experienced jewelry makers alike. This book features 30+ weaves for earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and more, all conveniently arranged by skill level. And here's the twist: Jewelry makers will learn how to break up links, turn them 90 degrees, or use multiple weaves in the same piece, ensuring their approach to chain mail will never be the same.
Sue Ripsch shares her expertise in chain mail in workshops across the country, and her original designs are represented by a Sedona, Arizona gallery. She and her husband have developed her passion into a web-based business, "Jewelry by Sue," through which they offer finished jewelry, kits, and jump rings made to precise specifications. They travel together to many well-known bead, jewelry, and wirework shows to spread their knowledge and appreciation of this fascinating art.
