Love this book
Some beautiful patterns and kits available. Review by Jenny (Posted on 7/18/2016)
great designs, some flaws
I'm taking away one star for 2 reasons. The first is that many (or maybe all) of the projects are reprints from earlier SBSWJ issues and I already had them. The other reason is that the resources in the projects were not reviewed and updated. For example, Blue Buddah is no longer in operation, and sources for some of beads/stones no longer carry the item. (Had the devil of a time locating those 27mm rivolis.) Some of the projects do have kits available, but what if you don't want those colors or whatever?

I don't know if the artists who contributed read these reviews, but if you do, first a huge thank you for sharing with us. You are inspiring!

It would be wonderful if you could include just a bit more info about the supplies used. Giving us the actual AR of the rings you used would be a huge help, since not all manufacturers' rings are identical one to the other. I have an embarrassingly huge stash of rings from several suppliers, and would prefer to use what I have before ordering even more rings. I do have a spreadsheet comparing 3 suppliers' rings for aluminum, but most people probably do not.

The second request is to give us the finished size. How wide is that finished pendant? How long are those earrings?

In spite of these nitpicky things, this is a great resource for new ideas and projects. I highly recommend it. And again, many thanks to the creators of these projects.

Outstanding... make full Magazine!!!
This is a wonderful limited issue, with awesome projects I want to (and will) make. The pictures and instructions are very well written, and the designs are outstanding. Many of the designers I am very familiar with.

I would love to see this limit edition be made into a regular monthly magazine, and if so... sign me up! There are a ton of crafting magazines, and while SBSW offers 1 or 2 chain maille designs, that is not the magazine's main goal... there needs to be a magazine devoted 100% to chain maille!

I would say there is only one thing I was disappointed about. I made my purchase as soon as I learned about it through FaceBook within one of my chain maille groups... and I paid full price... later a 25% discount was offered. I was disappointed. I certainly don't expect the cash back, but since I already purchased it, a discount applied to my interweave account for a future purchase... like a gift card balance would be nice. We all know there are lots more books I must have!

I love this book!
The projects in this book are beautiful, the instructions are clear and easy to follow. It was well worth the money I spent, and I hope there will be future magazines like this one, more frequently. Review by Erika (Posted on 6/6/2016)
