Chain Maille Earrings

When I teach Chain Maille classes, I always show my students how to make that particular pattern into earrings. Not only is it nice to have a matching set (earrings and bracelet) but it reinforces how to start the weave. Often starting a weave is the hardest part. When you make a bracelet and a pair of earrings, you have to start three times.

Plus you can always make a pair for a good friend who has admired your handiwork.

The first pair of earrings is Byzantine, the second, Flower or Mobius and the third, Parallel or Helm. (One thing with Chain Maille weaves, they all have at least one more different name)

Earrings make nice graduation, teacher or wedding gifts.

  1. I couldn't agree more with this post!! There are still many women who like all metallic jewelry so chain maille is the way to go for them. Pearl

  2. Chain Maille is my latest obsession...I wish I could take your class. I love the earrings. I am going to have to try them.
