Course outline: Create an unusual and contemporary bracelet that originates from the tradition of Japanese chainmaille. It's easy and to make and versatile - you could add charms to the large ring if you wished. The project is from my new book: Modern Chain Mail Jewelry. The matching necklace was selected for the photo on the cover.
Skill level: Beginner Plus
