Patience is a virtue I do not have. I have a healthy appreciation for good things that take time--things that are hand- and homemade from scratch instead of instant gratification and all that--but when it comes to jewelry-making techniques, there are some I know I will never do because I'm just too dang impatient . . . like chain maille.
I admire those of you who do have the patience for chain maille, so I'm happy to share Jean Campbell's great chain maille tips blog from our sister site, Beading Daily.
While you're there, you'll also want to take a look at another great chain maille blog that features a free Dear to My Heart chain maille bracelet project by Jean Yates. But it's not just any chain-maille bracelet; this chain-maille bracelet design allows you to personalize it for yourself or a loved one and includes great tips to help you do just that--just in time for Mother's Day!
