Creative Tutorial Ideas for Chain Jewelry

By on Saturday, August 25, 2012 6 Comments

We tend to use jump rings for connections and for chain mail weaves.  But these are not the only ways. Check out these tutorials which show us how to use jump rings and chains creatively.


The first idea comes from Primitive Earth Beads and Chain for an awesome adjustable leather bracelet. The video tutorial shows how easy it is. The instructor uses rollo chain but you can obviously use linked jump rings provided they are sufficiently large enough for two passes of cord.





How Did You Make This has the clearest set of instruction of ribbon weaving through jump rings so they both form a chain necklace!


The recycled leather tutorial using wrapped chain is a wonderful idea by Madeleine over at Rags to Couture.

  1. Love all these ideas, especially the jump rings and ribbon necklace. It is feminine with a little bit of a hard edge.

  3. Thanks for these links. I'm not especially talented at wirework..well I just haven't been inclined to practice it, so. Chain Mail or maille or whatever? No thanks! So the chain idea is great for me! I receive your blog via email and I forwarded this post to myself with a descriptive subject line and put a star next to it!
    Thanks again,
    Allie
