Awesome Scale Maille Necklace

September 21 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $50.00 +Kit fee: $15, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: This necklace will unleash your inner Game of Thrones personality! This chainmaille piece with scales is dramatic, yet light and easy to wear and surprisingly quick to make.

We will use anodized aluminum jump rings and pre-cut scales in two colours of your choice. Using two colors really helps you understand the construction. Note: a kit is required; see details below.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Familiarity with basic chainmaille techniques. You must be comfortable opening and closing jump rings properly with good closures. Knowledge of European 4-in-1 weave is helpful but not essential.

Technique: Chainmaille

Bring to class: If you have your own flat nosed pliers (2 pairs are required) please bring them, but tools will also be available in class. Bring magnification if you need it.
