Bead Dazzle

Chain Maille is not just for bracelets! Your pliers are your best friend as you build a two-layer triangle of Sterling Silver jump rings into a focal piece or connector for a fabulous pendant. This Japanese Chain Maille design allows you to create a geometric fabric that feels as good as it looks. Use extra jump rings as spacers and create a versatile extension and fabricated clasp for your necklace design. An understanding of antiquing chain mail will be given. Keep the geometric theme in mind as you add a pendant and just the right bead strand. See sample and scale of Chain Maille design in shop.

All students must have two pairs of non-serrated chain nose pliers or one flat and one chain or two flat nose pliers. Check with the shop for suitable sizes and shapes of tools. Please have good personal magnification. Shop will provide lighting or bring your own portable lighting as you work at your own seat.
