Awesome Chain Maille Jewelry Video Tutorials

Many Rings Rule!
Part 1 of 2
Chain maille is growing in popularity. So if you'd like to learn, here are more tutorials! This collection features the popular European weaves.

Rebecca (Agliaia1stGrace)`s chain maille video tutorials are just awesome! She demonstrates how one should really NOT put down the work in progress in order to save time.

Her Ripple Bracelet Tutorial using the European 6-in-1 weave shows how she holds the rings open before attaching the next connecting ring.  For a static tutorial, check Bative's speedweaving tutorial on Maille Artistsans International League (M.A.I.L).



If handling so many rings is not your cup of tea, try her Chain Link Choker video tutorial using the European 4-in-1 weave. As you can see, she uses a sliding lock clasp for her projects. For a static tutorial, check Big Vs Amoury's version also on M.A.I.L.



Her Kingsmaille Choker tutorial is also worth a look. Kingsmaille is just a European 4-in-1 weave with doubled up rings. Again, a static version is Aderamelech's tutorial on M.A.I.L.

Nice tutorials! Very clear and easy to follow. Relatively speaking, of course.

It is always a joy to watch a professional demonstrate their craft. Each motion is fluid and without hesitation, jumprings do as they are told and none of the monkey business of slipping off and dropping to the floor, where it can then roll somewhere inaccessible and most likely out of sight. But,as with everything, practice makes perfect and those who teach have had years of practice. We who are learning truly appreciate all the work you do to bring this knowledge to us.

I do love the look of handcrafted chains and chain maille jewelry but will definitely have to start with something that uses only 2 or 3 jumprings at a time.
