Make Chain-Maille Jewelry
You must be so proud that chain-maille jewelry makers can make jewelry entirely out of you, little jump ring. All they need are the proper tools for making chain-maille jewelry (including round-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers, and flush cutters) and a clasp or earring findings, plus maybe a mandrel and wire, if they want to make their own jump rings. Then the sky's the limit; they can turn you into chain or weave you into necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more.

Practice Chain-Maille Weaves
There are so many weaves they can make out of you, too, little jump ring, and those chain-maille weaves can be elaborate or simple, bold or delicate. In our free eBook, 3 Free Chain-Maille Projects, chain-maille jewelry fans can learn to make quick (five minutes!) simple knot chain-maille earrings, then make a basic two-by-two chain and turn it into a colorful chain-maille bracelet, and then move on to a bold bead and chain necklace featuring the popular foxtail chain-maille weave.

Chain-Maille Variety: Mixing Jump Rings
Another great thing about you, jump ring, is that you come in so many colors and sizes, making the possibilities for chain-maille jewelry projects truly limitless. Chain-maille fans can adapt nearly any chain-maille weave or pattern into a personal chain-maille project by using colored craft-wire or aluminum coated jump rings, by using larger or smaller jump rings, or by using and mixing alternative metals for a bi- and tri-color effect. Mixing metals can add an element of difficulty to the chain-maille project, too, increasing the challenge level for more advanced chain-maille jewelry makers.
