Hello everyone! I make chain mail armor since 1995 and since I got out
of jewelry school, I use my galvanized steel jump rings for making
different types of chains. The only book that I could find was one
suggested by my teacher, “The Complete Metalsmith” by Tim McCreight.
There are several types of chains, but too many are to be made with
precious metal or at least a kind of metal with enough malleability
to be bent or stretched in ovals. I can make these types of chains
but I’d like to find new ways to use my steel jump rings.
If any of you knows of a good book on chain making with round jump
rings, let me know. I need the title, the author and the editing
company, because I think I’ll have to order it.
Thank you in advance!!!
