SUMMARY: This is put out by the same company that publishes "Bead & Button", "Bead Style", and "Art Jewelry" magazine titles. I wish I had full runs of all of them, but my budget just won't stretch that far at the moment. I pick up issues when I can. I was very delighted with the two issues of this title I've been able to snag. According to advertisements in "Bead & Button", the Spring 2011 issue is the premiere issue. I find it interesting how jewelry making has completely subsumed the art of knitting chainmail, and enriched it in ways that weren't imagined as little as 30 years ago. Some of the projects in this magazine are great cases in point. The emphasis may be different(with armor, you're making huge sheets of the stuff, for one thing), but it is essentially coiling, cutting rings, and knitting them together for effect. Wire is so versatile! I highly recommend "Wirework" if you're looking outside the plain 4-ring chainmail box.

They have a website: http://www.WireworkMag.com/art .
