DIY Full Persian Chain Maille Tutorial
This awesome chain maille heart is created by Charon, owner of Stygian Chains. The chain maille technique used to create the heart is called Full Persian 6-in-1 or commonly called Full Persian. Looking closely at the heart chain maille, you’ll see a continuous “V” shape. You can use 2 colors of jump rings to highlight the pattern of the “V” shape.
The Full Persian Chain Maille is fit for beginners as you can quickly create a necklace or bracelet by just repeating the same pattern.
Still using a paper clip pull the new white rings. Attach a red ring onto the “V” shaped white rings and then go under the new white rings. Technically, you are inserting a new jump ring under the V shape and new white rings.
Look back at the heart chain maille and you’ll see that there are 2 sides of the heart where the Full Persian 6-in-1 chain maille is used. To create the middle part or the curve of the heart you need to split your Full Persian weave.
This is an important technique to learn because this can help you make use of your Full Persian Weave to create different designs. Visit this LINK for the Splitting a Full Persian 6-in-1 Weave.
