There is a kit for this project available for purchase. I wanted to provide this in a video as it is often the very first project that people try to make with chainmaille. It is a one size fits most pattern and the jump rings are fairly large and easy to work with.
Use our 10.1mm Orings & 20g 5/32" jump rings to make this fun new chain. I've included a bonus section at the end to show how to add pineapple charms to the chain.
This beginner project is quick and easy to learn. Use EPDM rubber orings and anodized aluminum jump rings from Bead Me A Story to make this quick and easy stretch chain. Then we'll show you how to join this project with Shrinkets from www.juliehaymaker.com to make a whimsical pair of earrings. Learning chainmaille can be simple, colorful and fun.
Getting rhinestones ready to work into chainmaille pieces is a skill in itself. Watch this video that goes through all the specific types of rhinestone montee beads and how to mount them onto jump rings. This will allow you to make a wide spectrum of projects. This work is extremely small and can be difficult to learn. You should have good eye sight and be comfortable working with small items in order to do this.
