Free Chain Maille Tutorials (4/28/2014)
Chain Maille is another versatile jewelry making technique that can add variety to your jewelry. While it can be difficult at first, if you stick with it your hands will get used to working together with two pairs of pliers. It just takes practice and developing “muscle memory”, memories stored in your brain that are much like a cache of frequently enacted tasks for your muscles.

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).

I’m not a real aficionado of chain maille, but once in awhile it’s really fun to dabble in, especially when you can whip up a fast and easy (and super-cute) pair of earrings in almost no time! I’m not sure exactly what you would call this pattern of linking your jump rings: it is either a simple 1 x 1 chain with extra loops added to every other link, or it’s a 3 x 1 chain without the second attachment for the outer rings of each 3.

The goal of this tutorial is to explain how to make the jens pind weave. For this tutorial you will need rings with an aspect ratio (AR = inner diameter – ID divided by the wire diameter – WD) of ~ 3 amd two pairs of pliers without teeth. I used rings with a wire diameter of 1,17 mm and an inner diameter of 3,5 mm.
In this video I show you once again how to make basic units, and how to connect those units into a length of chain. Once again keep suggesting pepakura files, and hope you like the video and future videos.
