Chain Maille Jewelry
History and fashion meet to make elegant jewelry with a contemporary flair. Chain maille was first developed over 2000 years ago for armour that consisted of small metal rings linked together in various patterns to form a protective mesh. These kits cover various chain maille techniques, such as the Byzantine or the European 4-in-1, and they give you step-by-step instructions to learn the process. The round jump rings are easy to open and close after a few practice tries. Once you get going, this is a very relaxing and fun project. Discover an ancient skill and create beautiful jewelry that you can wear! Everything is included in each kit to make one piece of jewelry (or 2 pairs of earrings): various sized silver-plated jump rings, jump ring opener, T-pin, silver-plated clasp, and an instruction booklet. All you need to supply is a small pair of chain nose pliers and a passion for fashion!
