Chainmaille

I LOVE chainmaille!  Here is a set that I’ve created using these beautiful copper and silver plated jump rings, decorative leaves and seed beads (because I love dangles♥).

[The  creative process]

The technique used here is “2 and 2″, which is two silver jump rings linked together and then 2 copper jump rings linked together through the silver ones.  Sounds complicated, right?  But it’s actually quite easy.  Just a continuous linking of the different colored rings until you achieve the length required for a bracelet (6 1/2″ – 7”) and add “dangles” and a clasp and VIOLA!   You have the beautiful set shown below.
