Captured Crystal Chain Maille Flower Tutorial


I've done captured crystal bracelets before. So I really like this captured crystal chain maille flower tutorial.  It is by a Russian instructor over on livemaster.ru. Ring sizes are critical to the success of any chain maille project.  So note down the ring internal diameter as well as the wire gauge used to make the rings.

I typically use a bent nose and small broad nose pliers. But as it is tricky to get the tips of pliers into such a design so I would use regular chain nose instead of broad nose pliers in this situation.




You can make some earrings and a pendant with this design. Or if you love this design, go ahead and link up several for a bracelet!

The tutorial is in Russian. So either use Google Translate or follow my favorite method. For computer users, use the Chrome browser, right click and select translate to EnglishFor mobile device users, use the Chrome app (free) and agree to the translation when asked.
