Chain Mail + Color features a fun collection of 20 chain mail projects made from colorful aluminum jump rings and aluminum scales, disks, and washers. This new spin on chain mail takes traditional weaves and gives them a fresh, new perspective by incorporating these fun components. Unique projects plus color variations, including earrings, lariats, necklaces, bracelets, and a pin are in this collection. The projects are organized by material so there is a great variety of projects using scales, disks, and washers. A gallery of author Vanessa Walilko’s work, including chain mail vests, completes the book.
