Creative Silver Chains is another book in my collection which I would thoroughly recommend. It begins with an overview of how-to's for soldering, drilling, ring forming, etc. with a wonderful collection of unique jewellery pieces on each and every page. It covers a section on design and is complete with a beautiful gallery of amazing creations. This book gives clear instructions on 20 projects in sterling silver for a necklace or bracelet and all include instructions for matching earrings. If you enjoy soldering and forming you will love this book. It covers some very unique links that I haven't found in other books.
