Chain Maille Patterns (9/21/2015)

2015 September 21

I love the look of chain maille and making chain maille jewelry. While there is nothing as elegant and stunning as sterling silver chain maille, silver has been a lot more expensive that when I started. Thank goodness there are aluminum jump rings that not only have beautiful colors, but are wonderfully light as well.

Recently, I have posted a German tutorial for a Japanese cross chainmaille bracelet on my blog. I decided to publish the tutorial here as well. It is a documentation of the single steps I take when I make this piece of jewelry. All photos are made by myself. All the rings were ordered from the Blue Buddha Boutique (B3). The matching ring sizes are offered there as kit as you can see in the following sections.

Box Chain Chainmail Pattern | Jewelry Making Instructions Wed, 27 Nov 2013 20:30:00 -0800

These instructions teach you how to make a box chain weave. A link to a jewelry design idea to make a jewelry set appears at the end of these instructions.  The magic number for the box chain weave is four – as in two pairs of jump rings. You will begin the weave with a 2-2-2 starter chain. Once you have completed one weave you will end with a pair of dangling jump rings.

Tutorial – Sophie’s Easy European 4 in 1 Chain Mail Bracelet Sun, 31 May 2009 18:02:44 -0700

I first learned chain mail a few years ago in a class at SPLASH, a yearly event held at M.I.T which lasts three days.  At SPLASH, M.I.T students offer hundreds of different classes which they teach to high school students.  The class subjects range from integral calculus to chocolate sculpture to cheese tasting.  This bracelet uses the most basic chain mail pattern: the European 4 in 1.

Chainmail Patterns & Interlocking Parts – 3D printing service Thu, 02 Oct 2014 14:57:56 -0700

One of the most fascinating things about 3D printing are chainmail patterns, interlocking, and movable parts. The structures of these designs look complex, but they are actually quite simple to make. These kind of structures (often called “nested” parts) can be used for 3D printed jewelry, mechanical structures, complex action figures, decor items, and many other projects.
