SUMMARY- There are many beautiful chain weaves in this book not pictured on the cover, with great colored diagrams. This is obviously a book for jewelry making, not armor, so she deals with more expensive metals for her rings than I've ever dealt with. I loved looking through this book, and there are several weaves I'm itching to try. I was very pleased to have bought this book.
