cover art of Chain Maille Jewelry WorkshopChain Maille Jewelry Workshop: Techniques and Projects for Weaving with Wire by Karen Karon will teach you the most popular chain maille weaves. And Karen will demonstrate “speed weaving,” which will help you in completing your own large projects! Karen is not only a master at chain maille but is also a PMC Guild certified instructor. Karen teaches at Metalwerx and private chain maille jewelry classes.

The chain maille projects presented in the book fall into three categories: chain weaves, sheet weaves, and units. Karen will take you through basics to intricate Dragonscale with lots of instruction and great photography to make it easy to follow along. Karen says, “if you are a beginner, then you should start at the beginning.” By working through chapter by chapter, you will build on techniques already learned.
