Chainmail 101 – Byzantine

April 14 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Instructor: Liz Turner

Class Length: 2 hours

Learn the Chainmail basics with Liz! This class is all about giving you the knowledge you need to get started making your own chainmail jewelry – starting with the Byzantine chain. This simple link weave is versatile, attractive, and fun! You will also learn some other chainmaille basics in this class, such as how to tell if you have the right jump rings for the job, which metals are good for chainmail, and how to open and close your rings quickly and easily. 

For this class you will need: 

96 5/32″ 18 gauge jump rings  

2+ dragon scales

Preferred earring findings

You are encouraged to bring your own flat nose pliers, however, there will be classroom pliers available for shared use. 

Kits containing two colors of anodized jump rings (48 pieces ea.) and a pair of dragon scales are available for purchase with your ticket. However, if you’re feeling creative, come in and pick up your own colors in the Blueberry Beads Store before the class begins. 

This class will be held in the Blueberry Beads Classroom space above the Blueberry Beads store. If you’re coming in from the front door, from the foyer, go through the door on the left and up the stairs to reach your destination! If you need help, feel free to ask any of us inside the Blueberry Beads store for guidance. Please be sure to be on time and ready for your class, as the class may start without you! 

Recommended Age: 16+
