I got my July issue of Art Jewelry and among other wonderful articles, was a pattern for an open round chain maille bracelet. Since I've only done two chain maille bracelets and this was described as a "beginner" project, it was just the right project for me! The most difficult part of this project was getting it started...they suggested using a mandrel and I came up with a straw, taped my three starting links and continued to add links until it was the right length. I added extra links to taper the ends and added a toggle that I crafted myself - something else I'd not done before, but I like it. I've always found chain maille rather intimidating, but these two recent bracelets have definitely given me courage! If you are considering chain maille, I definitely recommend these two patterns as starters. Blessings, Anita p.s. You can find the other bracelet in a previous post.
