Making A Chain Maille Bracelet

Make Jewellery Chain Maille Bracelet Jewelery Beads

I have had my eye on this Chain Maille bracelet since the launch of the Make Jewellery magazine online party in April and I have finally finished my version. I have never attempted chain maille jewellery before so I printed out the instructions and they were very easy to follow. If you can open and close jump rings as well as wrap a bead with wire you already have all the skills you need.

I ended up pinning my bracelet to a cushion as I worked so I could see where I was up to as I added the jump rings. I spent 5 minutes here and there until all the rings were joined and then spent a few weeks trying to work out just what beads I wanted on it. LOL One must rush these things after all!

I finally decided on a mixture of glass and shell beads in pink and green pastels. I love how they look with the silver rings. These bracelets would make a beautiful gift and look gorgeous too.

  1. WOW! What a stunning and fresh and beautiful bracelet hunnie. You make it all sound sooooo easy hun! I'm sure it is but, looks rather complicated to me! an I ask hun, once all the rings are on do you just add on the beads and shells with no problem afterwards? just wondered. Keep up the beautiful work hun, you are one talented lady and this bracelet I wold pay lots for myself. It's just my colours and the beauty of it is he type of bracelet that it is! Must look out these instructions if have, they from the 1st or 2nd issue?

  2. Your bracelet is so beautiful! I agree about not rushing it, it's always good to walk away and return with fresh perspective. Then you end up with something beautiful!! It makes me want to try this!
