  Yes I Want My Free Chain Maille Jewelry Instructions eBook!

In jewelry making we often use jump rings to connect other parts, securing a clasp to a necklace or charms to a bracelet; but you can also make jewelry with nothing but jump rings, too. The jewelry making technique of chain maille combines jump rings to create chains, knots, necklaces, bracelets and earrings, and can be as simple or complex as you desire. Requiring little more than pliers to open and close the jump rings and a good supply of jump rings to work with, this useful way to make jewelry is an easy and versatile technique to add to your jewelry toolbox.

The experts at Jewelry Making Daily present this collection of chain maille jewelry instructions, plus bonus guide to help you learn the ins and outs of chainmaille. Start by learning how to make chain maille earrings with colorful jump rings and glass beads in just five minutes. Then try a basic two-by-two chain for a colorful bracelet that is reminiscent of grapes on a silver vine. Next, move on to a necklace featuring the foxtail chain, a classic weave that is a favorite of many jewelry artists. Then, pick up your bonus guide where you'll learn everything you need to know about aspect ratio, wire gauge, inner diameter, outer diameter, and wire diameter to allow you to follow these tutorials exactly as shown, or successfully adapt them to your own designs.

Bonus Guide to Aspect Ratio, Wire Gauge, Inner Diameter, and Outer Diameter
"A Little Math = A Lot of Success in Chain Maille" by Karen Hung

Knowing how to weave jump rings into intricate patterns is only half the craft of chainmaille. To make a great looking chain, you must know the optimal ring size to highlight the pattern. If your rings are too big, the chain might be floppy and the chain maille jewelry might lose its shape. Conversely, if the jump rings are two small, your chain might be inflexible, or you might not be able to weave the jump rings together at all. With this informative chain maille jewelry tutorial, you will learn how to correctly identify the aspect ratio of the chains to fit the proper wire diameter to the pattern. Karen walks you step by step through the aspect ratio formula, which takes the inner diameter and wire diameter to find the perfect fit. The chain maille tutorials cover various ways to use the formula, including using it to find alternative sizes, and includes a useful chart of common wire diameters to help you along the way. Learn how to identify the aspect ratio, inner diameter, outer diameter, wire diameter, and more with these chain maille instructions.
