Supplies Needed

  • (About 18 rings / 1 inch) 7mm 18 gauge open jump rings - I used 7mm rings for my silver sample and 4.47mm rings for my bronze sample, but you can use smaller rings for a more delicate chain if you'd like. It will take more than 18 jump rings/inch if you go with a smaller size. I would not go smaller then 3.5mm open jump rings for a "Byzantine Chainmaille" piece.
  • (2) Chain nose pliers
  • (1) Clasp of your choice - lobster claw and jump ring, toggle, etc.
