Free Chain Maille Tutorials (12/11/2013)
The goal of this tutorial is to explain how to make the Japanese 12 in 1 chainmailleweave. Using this tutorial you can also do the Japanese 12 in 2 chainmaille model, but the aspect ratio (AR = the inner diameter – ID divided by the wire diameter – WD) will differ. You can start in multiple ways – either with the big rings closed and the small ones opened, or inverse, or using the free style (opening and closing each ring at its time).

Constructing a genuine European 4 in 1 chainmaille weave using only pop tabs. Turns out this is very easy and makes a really great looking piece of maille, and as an added bonus you don’t have to worry about having a quarter mile of wire on hand to attach them together.

Although I don’t recommend attempting a Half Persian weave for the first one you learn, I decided to make 3-in-1 my first tutorial for a few different reasons – the main one being that it was the cause of a bit of frustration for me for a little while and I thought that if I made a tutorial while I am still very conscious of each step, it might make for an easier-to-understand tutorial for those who may be grappling with it.

This gorgeous bag offers a way to reuse the tabs from soda cans. The final pattern created by the tabs looks a bit like chain maille or fish scales, but either way, it’s ever-so stylish. The proportions can be adjusted for other laptops, or to make other bag sizes. To make sure that the laptop will fit, you’ll need to be sure to keep your seams as narrow as possible, or add a little bit to all of the pieces to allow for extra room.

Chain maille is an invention by the Celts and used as a body armour which then spread throughout North Africa, Middle East, Central Asia, India, Tibet, Korea and Japan. In today’s century, chain maille patterns is now used to make jewelry. Chain maille is a fun jewelry technique and you don’t need many tools to work on it, just 2 nose pliers, and lots and lots of packs of jump rings.

The technique I use is called “speedweaving” because it’s one of the fastest ways to make maille. What I will describe is not the only way to speedweave, but this is the one I use, and which works great for me. I did not invent this technique. I’m just sharing it with the world…
In this video I show you how to create your own earrings at home. It’s quick and easy to do and you won’t need too much to make it.
