We will be learning European 4-1, a basic chainmaille weave. The final project will be a bracelet.
What you will need:
2 pairs of pliers - chain nose and flat nose. Make sure your pliers do not have any teeth!
Jump rings - 100 each of 2 different colors
- 18 gauge
- 4.1 aspect ratio . Bead Gallery has several colors to choose from. If you get them elsewhere, the most important thing to look for is the AR (Aspect Ratio). It must be right around 4 for the weave to lay properly.
