Unleash your creative side! In this workshop, you will learn the basics of creating chainmail weaves, including how jump rings are made, how to properly open and close jump rings, and how the wire gauge and size of the jump ring affect the weaves. You will learn the Classic Byzantine Weave pattern by linking the rings to form an intricate chain. Best of all, you will get to work on this bracelet weave in the workshop, ensuring that you have a solid understanding of the pattern. Each student will receive a kit that includes enough stainless-steel jump rings and clasp to create an 8-inch bracelet. Two smooth jawed pliers will be provided for your use in the class, but if you have your own small pliers, you are encouraged to bring them to class. Instructor will also have Sterling Silver Kits available during class for an additional fee. Your instructor has a love for unique styling and great color combinations that show in her jewelry designs. She is anxious to introduce you to a hobby that she loves!
