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.
The finished pieces.
