SUMMARY- There are very detailed instructions and great illustrations for learning the split ring technique. I really like this book, and when I screw up the courage, it's probably the one I'll use to learn this important advanced technique. She gives a great monogram alphabet to practice split ring with, as well as a couple other distinctive patterns that heavily employs it - so there's no excuse not to be confident by the time you're done.
