This book is very self explanatory and has been a great help in teaching me how to create wirewrapped jewelry.

I do not own this book yet but I have had the priviledge of viewing it at a Christmas Show where the Author had a display of many of his hand crafted pieces, along with this book.
I have approximately 9-10 chain mail pieces, all necklaces and or bracelets. They have all been hand crafted by Dylon Whyte. When attending specialty craft shows I seek this talanted man out to see what is new and exciting.
Thank you Dylon for being so gifted in this rare field and for sharing your talent. I adore the book's presentation, and it gave me so many ideas of future gifts to myself!

Would recommend for novices all the way to expert dabblers! Dec 10 2008
By N. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great chain mail jewelry book that uses quality metal materials and glass beads to make classy pieces for all ages. The book has the usual intro section on making/buying the jump rings, bending them right, info on tools with tips to use and care for them.

Chain work includes variations of basic cable 2-in-2, spiral chain (on the cover), euro 4-in-1, byzantine, "rings of Saturn", and a persian star pattern. This book includes instruction for all the weaves and incorporates them into 26 projects for you to try.

I think this is a great book to look at linking rings or chain making in a whole new way! I think of "chain maille" as something pretty time consuming, but most of the projects in this book could be made in one sitting if you're worried about the time involved!

Lots of creative ways to use crow / roller beads, but I gave it 4-stars for NOT showing designs with gems, stones, PMC or polymer clay. 1 pendant has a swarovski crystal. The book mentions hole-size as the problem there, but I know a review-reading artist like you can over come this! Plenty of ways out there to make or buy something a jump ring can link through, but it doesn't look like the author really gave this honorable mention. He's in it for the chain and beads are an afterthought, whereas I'm more focused on beads and want spiffy ways to display them. ;-) All-in-all a wonderful learning book with eye candy type inspiration to make your own variations!

Any renaissance faire goer is going to LOVE the Gypsy Cuff earrings! As a lampworker I adored the Drops of Jupitor design as my personal favorite! Definitely going to make me one of those! I also thought his method of caging a donut looked impressive, and I can't imagine why the Adromeda necklace wasn't chosen as the cover piece! I'll upload pictures of my favorites in a minute!

An absolute must have! Dec 20 2008
By Marian Kolbel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My friend showed me their copy of this book and now I absolutely must have it for my own! Mom? This is what I want for Christmas!! I just can't get enough of Dylon Whyte's instructionals!

I have purchased some of Dylon's tutorials off his Etsy website and have his first book, The Art of Chainmail Vol. 1, plus a book that he illustrated for Lark Publishing including serveral different chainmail designers, "Chain Mail Jewelry: Contemporary Designs from Classic Techniques" - I just have to say that Dylon's instructionals are fantastic! Whether they are self published by the master himself, or done through a big publisher like Lark - they are high quality and professional through and through! Super easy to understand and that's saying something, because English is not my first language and very hard for me to understand when in written instructions. The picture tutorials make it well worth the effort to pick up a copy of this book!

I've been making chainmail since 1994, when I first made a chainmail shirt for an SCA event out of 12 gauge, stainless steel, handcut... yeah, can you imagine? HAHAHAHA! Thank you Dylon Whyte and other great chainmail folks out there whom have shown me that there is definitely more to this whole chainmail business! And yes, I said business... if you are out there looking for ideas of things to make and sell or even give as gifts, the stuff in this book is just surely a bang for your buck!

This book is just pure eye candy! Dec 20 2008
By C. Steele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Oh my goodness! I just love Dylon Whyte's chainmail jewelry. I have several pieces that I have purchased off his Etsy website. When I heard this book was coming out, I just had to order it and I am so glad I did! It is absolutely stunning!

Dylon is light years beyond my skill as a chainmail artisan, but his variety of work has given me so much encouragement to look at chainmail in a whole different way! I love his clearly illustrationed tutorials, they are so easy to read and follow! The instructions in the book are so simple and not at all difficult to understand. No scratching my head and puzzled look on my face trying to figure out what the heck it means!

Thank you Dylon Whyte for your time, energy and creativity to put out such a beautiful book on the art of chainmail! It is sure to be a classic on my bookshelf and will definitely be some nifty eye candy of inspiration! Also, a perfect gift for my chainmailin' friends!!

A Winner for Whyte!!! Dec 16 2008
By Silver_Babs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With each book he improves how and what he shares with his fans.

Imaginative designs, colorful materials and easy to follow directions.

What more could a jewelry maker want... whether a novice or an expert these pieces are inspiring and there is something for everyone. I purchased 2 copies of the book so I could gift one to a favorite chainmailing friend who actually introduced me to Dylon many years ago.

I must admit after reading the reviews I was unsure what to expect because they are so distinctly different. One reviewer seems to be looking at the same book I have in my hand... while the other seems off the beam entirely... I am so glad I decided to have a look for myself and went ahead and ordered, it would have been a shame to miss this jewel of a book...

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves looking at chainmail pieces along with anyone who wants to learn how to make them...

Great book, Very informative Dec 14 2008
By Shayne Beausoleil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have seen a lot of chainmaille in my time. Dylon Whyte's quality has always superseded anyone's work.
This attention to detail and superior craftsmanship comes through in the book he has written.
There are many unique patterns he has made that you won't be able to find anywhere, even on the vast world wide web.
I've recommended this book to other chainmaillers in my area and they've all thoroughly enjoyed it and have all learned new techniques they had never thought of.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in making great looking jewelery from chainmaille.
