Todays New Craft: Chainmaille

Today I spent the day working on a kit given to me by an etsy store, UnkamenSupplies. Although I tried two classes in chainmaille before, I failed miserably. But this kit was great. The instructions were on YouTube and I pulled some directions off the web and off I went. The kit was a parallel weave, also called helm weave, bracelet with sterling and turquoise clasp and enough rings to make earrings. The rings were copper and sterling. I think they came out very well and I'm very happy my new bracelet and earrings, which still need wires. Thank you to Ralph and Karen!
