A marriage between chain maille and stringing

Carol is a regular at our workshops and has grown fond of chain maille ever since she was introduced to it. She shows a refreshing flair for her favorite technique.

She decided to marry chain maille with conventional stringing. She linked the simple 2-2 chains with the main bracelet using 3 hole connectors.

The bracelet actually required two goes because the bracelet was too long initially. It's better to make the main bracelet first as this sets the right length. The chain can then be made to fit exactly.

Carol used pretty blue millefiore beads with round mother of pearl beads and touches of black and clear seedbeads. They were a great choice to compliment the chain maille. I am sure she will enjoy wearing this bracelet often.

Beader design #: 552
