SUMMARY- This is obviously for jewelry and not armor. She has some really beautiful designs for chains in this book, and emphasizes using different sized rings in a piece in order to obtain the looks she wants. She uses photos rather than diagrams for her projects, and the shine from the metal necessitates studying the pictures for a while to tease out the detail - not optimal, but doable.
