In Chain and Bead Jewelry Geometric Connections, wirework jewelry designer Scott David Plumlee shares his techniques for creating an amazing array of original designs using copper, silver, brass, and gold jump rings, all inspired by geometric shapes.

By adapting and building on the traditional Byzantine chain configuration, Scott creates unique collections of earrings, bracelets and necklaces, from three-sided Tripoli to the four-sided Quatrefoil to the five-sided Pentagon, plus innovative Organic designs, including fish, five- and six- pointed snowflakes, and a butterfly.

The thorough “Chain and Bead Basics” chapter, which guides readers through all the essential tools and techniques, makes it easy for beginners to re-create these stunning pieces.
