Byzantine Chainmail

April 14 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

Instructor: Liz Turner

Class Length: 90 Minutes

Welcome to a fun and interesting introduction to chainmail! Or is it chainmaille? In this class, you’ll find out all the things you need to know in order to start enjoying this historical art form… starting with the byzantine link! Byzantine is beginner friendly! This complex looking chain is deceptively easy and as you learn the necessary steps you will also learn about the most efficient way to open and close jump rings, what aspect ratio is and how it can affect your projects and some cool history.

Please take note that this class is not long enough to finish a project unless you are making earrings.

For this class you will need: 

18 gauge 5/32” Jump Rings

50 (or 1 bag at Blueberry) will make earring length
150 (or 3 bags at Blueberry) will make approximately 7” for a bracelet
450+ (or 9+ bags at Blueberry) will make about 21” (or more) for a necklace

The Blueberry will provide pliers to use in class BUT if you have your own pliers available you are welcome to bring them for your personal use.

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+
