Jewelry Making with Full Persian Chain Maille Tutorial

 

Take a look at what I found! A chain maille heart created with Full Persian chain maille jewelry making technique!
jewelry makingThis 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.

Step 1:
Attach 2 jump rings onto a paper clip. The paper clip will help you to hold and keep the jump rings in place as you weave.

Step 6:
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.
