Choo-choo!!! We are going to learn chain maille today!
Choo Choo Train Chain Maille Bracelet & Earrings tutorial!
This tutorial is based on variation from European 1 in 4 technique to create an elegantly simple bracelet. Using the same technique you can also create earrings.
Let’s learning the pattern!
Take a 10mm ring and a bead appropriate for the dimension of the jump ring. String in a bead into the jump ring. Make 2 sets of jump rings with beads.
Now fold the second jump ring with a bead backward to create the start of the centipede pattern chain. You notice the beads are now facing the same direction.
Prepare another jump ring with a bead and link with 2 x 3mm.
Voila! Mix and match using different materials and colors of jump rings as
well as beads to come up with many beautiful variations. Easy, simple and fun jewelry making tutorial!
