Scott does a wonderful job giving instructions - his illustrations and diagrams are as good as it gets. His in-depth examination of Byzantine weave is both interesting in its own right and useful to anyone looking to understand the math, the philosophy, and the mechanics underlying this weave in particular and chainmaille in general. I go back to this book time and again to refresh myself on basic techniques. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823022994, Paperback)

Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry shows how to create beautiful, dimensional silver, copper, and brass chains using simple tools. The main style is based on the elegant, classical Byzantine pattern, and uses the Golden Ratio to determine the circumference of a chain’s interlocking rings based on the thickness of the wire. Illustrated step-by-step directions show how to calculate the circumference of the rings, how to wrap wire into coils, how to cut, and finally, how to assemble the chain. Starting from the basic Byzantine, new chain makers can then progress to increasingly Byzantine variations, including linear, knot, crown, and combination chains. Incorporating beads and charms offers endless possibilities for crafters who will soon, surely, be locked up in chains!
