Hi Benoit! A book I’m happy to recommend is
"Great Wire Jewelry" by Irene From Peterson
(c) 1998 Lark Books ISBN 1-57990-093-3
Hardcover, 60p, $US 14.95
Don’t be misled by its title – it’s actually a book about
chain-making using two different techniques: 1) chains utilizing
round unsoldered rings, including chain mail and 2) “Viking knitting”
(the chains are knit/braided/twisted with a single continuous length
Ms. Peterson studied and then re-created Viking-era chains and chain
mail – very cool. The instructions and accompanying illustrations
are extremely clear and well-written.
I’ve had (and am continuing to have!) a lot of fun with this book.
