Link It!: Colorful Chain Mail Jewelry with Rubber O-Rings
Jewelry enthusiasts, metal workers, beaders, and general crafters have fallen in love with the elegant lines of chain mail. And with this attractive resource, they have a wonderful and easy new way to mimic its look and make unique, eye-catching necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. All it takes are flexible, colorful neoprene O-rings, woven together into basic units, then joined together with metal jump rings. The 26 projects are bright and beautiful: imagine playful blue and yellow earrings dangling from French wire, an intricate bracelet in lavender and white with a charming floral focus bead, or a bold copper wrist cuff. Of course, each project features superb close-up how-to photography illustrating the various stages of construction from start to finish.
