Classic Chain Mail Jewelry with A Twist by Sue Ripsch
CLASSIC CHAIN MAIL JEWELRY WITH A TWIST by SUE RIPSCH
This is a 95 page soft cover book with 28 projects . There is something here for everyone no matter what level of expertise you are at. There are projects for beginners, Intermediates, and Advanced artisans. This awesome publication was published by KALMBACH BOOKS.
Book layout is as follows: Page 4 Introduction, page 5-6 Basics making jump rings, page 7-8 Basic tumbling jump rings, page 9-10 Basic Aspect Ratio. Then on Pages 11-44 the Beginner weave projects begin. On pages 45-84 the Intermediate weaves begin, and last but not least on page 85-95 the Advanced weaves begin.
Sue Ripch has been making chain mail jewelry for a number of years and teaches the craft in bead stores and at national bead shows. She is an accomplished author of, " CLASSIC CHAIN MAIL JEWELRY" and This publication "CLASSIC CHAIN MAIL JEWELRY WITH A TWIST". Sue and her husband have an online business, "JEWELRY BY SUE". They offer finished jewelry , kits, and jump rings made to specifications. Sue's designs are also represented by a Sedona, Ariz. gallery.
This book is exquisite and it is laid out with not only written step by step easy to follow instructions but also with photographed steps. The photography is spectacular very crisp and clear and easy to follow. Every detail of each project is covered.
I decided to take this review one step further and try to make one of these projects. So I chose the CRAZY BYZ BRACELET on page 21. Here are a couple of pics of my completed bracelet.
I found the directions to be easy to follow. I have tried chain mail in the past and lost patience and gave up, but not this time. Sue makes it easier and fun. I am excited now to make more chain mail jewelry. Thank you so much Sue. I would highly encourage you to consider adding this new book to your beading library. I think you will be very glad you did. Thank you for stopping by and please enjoy the pictures I am including of this publication.
Well I am married to a wonderful man. I love designing jewelry. I have been a jewelry artisan for over ten years now.
I also have a great love for animals...Right now I have a 16 year old boston terrier and three boxers. I am also starting this blog site with loads of my jewelry designs and tutorials I have come across in my search to learn and improve on my craft. I would love to hear from fellow beaders. Thanks for stopping by......
