I love making chain maille, and I especially love it in color! This tutorial is a way to learn to make beautiful chain maille jewelry, without breaking the bank while you learn! You'll learn the Byzantine and Box (Queen's Link) weaves, as well as a cool variation on the Byzantine. Byzantine is a chain maille (also spelled chain mail or chainmaille) weave that looks so complicated...but is really so easy! You'll love being able to make bracelets and necklaces that will get ooohs and aaaaahs. So...are you ready? Let's get maille! :D BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know how to open and close jump rings properly. Knowing how to make a wrapped loop is useful.

Supplies Needed

  • jump rings, pliers
  • clasps, earring findings

I saw some beautiful jewelry and the owner told me she had made it herself. From that point on, I have explored just about every beaded jewelry technique I can -- bead weaving stitches, loom weaving, stringing, bead crochet, get the idea, LOL!
