and Metal artists will enjoy a collection of new, less-common weaves
and challenging projects that 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.
book is then divided into 4 sections, each devoted to a particular
type of weave: new Persian weaves, Elf-based weaves, Hybrid weaves,
and Scale Maille weaves that incorporate sheet metal scales into traditional
weaves for a striking effect. Sprinkled throughout the illustrated
step-by-step instructions for each weave technique are valuable tips
from Karen to help ensure a beautiful finished piece.
