Shown above is my “Loopy in Love Charm” pendant in red & pink crystals, and loopy loop earrings gold with crescent moons, discs for full moons & gold-filled leverbacks. The pendant is quick to create for Valentine’s Day, and the earrings are dressy, lightweight, and dangle with a charm pendant soft jingle. To create this weave, you’ll find a variety of choices in tutorials: video, illustrated, and photographs. Firstly, let’s watch Christiane Ross teach us the basic Mobius, also known as Love Knots, and the basic Loopy Loops weave.

I’ve been dying to have a go at some chain maille for a while now, but couldn’t seem to find any suitable jump rings. I wanted something just a little bit out of the ordinary and, when I saw these beautiful 8mm Twisted Wire Silver Jump Rings, I knew that I’d found the perfect supplies for the project I had in mind.

The chain maille technique used to create the heart is called Full Persian 6-in-1 or commonly called Full Persian. Looking closely at the heart chain maille, you’ll see a continuous “V” shape. You can use 2 colors of jump rings to highlight the pattern of the “V” shape. The Full Persian Chain Maille is fit for beginners as you can quickly create a necklace or bracelet by just repeating the same pattern.

Many chain mail weaves are easy……once you get started. So here is a really simple solution to get you started on the Full Persian chain mail weave without tearing your hair out! I used 18G 1/4″ bright aluminum and bronze rings, a couple of wire ties and a stainless steel clasp. The two colors not only help with the instruction but also adds to the design. The bronze rings will patina to a darker color. Otherwise this piece is low maintenance and inexpensive to make.
