Half Persian 4-in-1 Chainmaille with Seamless Join

Create a seamless chainmaille bangle!

“HP4” is a classic chainmaille weave, very fluid and sexy. It also works well with rubber/EPDM rings to make stretchy bangles. This class with Gillian Clarke will cover making the weave from scratch and also joining the ends seamlessly to make a bangle or a no-clasp long necklace.

Type of class: Virtual. A few days prior to the class you will be sent an email containing the class instructions and the electronic link to the Zoom class. Once these instructions have been sent, refunds and cancellations will not be permitted.

Kit fee: Custom kits can be arranged. Please contact the instructor at gillian@layer9.net; allowing plenty of time for mailing.

Skill level: Beginner Plus/Intermediate

Prerequisite: Basic chainmaille skills – opening and closing jump rings. This is not difficult, but probably should not be your first chainmaille project.

Technique: Chainmaille

Have for class: If you don’t have rings in your stash, rings are available from www.theringlord.com or contact the teacher.
