Byzantine Triad Chain Tutorial

from KaeLynn Design
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Byzantine Triad Chain Tutorial
Byzantine Triad Chain Tutorial
Byzantine Triad Chain Tutorial
Byzantine Triad Chain Tutorial

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knowledge of the proper method of opening and closing jump rings without distortion

Pattern Description:

This tutorial will teach you to construct the Byzantine Triad chainmaille weave. This weave is a variation of the Byzantine chainmaille weave and is suitable for those who are familiar with the construction of the Byzantine chain. If you are new to Byzantine, I have this tutorial elsewhere in my shop.


  • 2 pairs smooth jawed pliers (I use one flat nose and one chain nose)
  • precut rings in the recommended sizes
  • pick or small knitting needle (optional, but helpful until you get the hang of the weave)

You Will Also Need:

  • beads and/or clasps to finish your chain
