How to make Chain Maille Tutorials

I miss my chain maille making tools. 🙁 I miss the new pliers and cutters I bought from Beadaholique before Christmas. I miss my wires too LOL. I’m still on vacation and has not come home yet to my own pad. I did not bring my jewelry making tools with me as I do not intend to stay too long where I am right now. My hands are getting itchy now on making handmade jewelries LOL. Can’t wait to get home soon and be on my working table surrounded with beads and wires.

Since I can’t create for now I’d just like share some interesting chain maille pieces that I saw from bloggers. They’re pretty cool designs and I hope you’ll get good ideas and be inspired to try on making chain maille.

This first design I really love is from How Did You Making This. It’s a collar style chain maille that’s very unique.
