Silver chains are the backbone of any jewelry collection and these distinctive designs have special handmade touches that machine-made jewelry just can't match. The best part is that anyone can craft them, thanks to this extensively illustrated introduction that explains all the basics, from link formation to soldering and polishing. Try one or all of the 20 exquisite projects like the Geometric Chain, comprised of varied wire forms that rest in the crooks of their neighboring links, or the Spine design, which utilizes flattened wire and unique pivoting joinery. A gallery of contemporary chains provides inspiration.
