Chainmaille Jewelry – Captured Bead


The process of creating chainmaille involves using two pairs of pliers (one in each hand), wielding them like a crab, and opening and closing split rings to create intricate patterns. The process is simple and addictive, although people with arthritis or other hand sensitivities may have difficulty. During these workshops, we will utilize anodized aluminum jump rings, a material that is lightweight, easy to work with, durable, waterproof and cleans up with soap and water. It also comes in a rainbow of 25 colors – you will be able to select your own custom mix of colors to create your pieces. Take one workshop or take them all! Captured Bead While chainmaille by itself is fun, expand your horizons by incorporating beads into your work! In this class, you will create a bracelet and a pair of earrings to accentuate a variety of glass beads and semi-precious stones. A materials cost of $7 is due to instructor at class meeting.
