This DVD is a great way to get started making chainmaille. It teaches seven separate chainmaille weaves, plus a “tips and tricks” section to help you develop good habits right from the start.
The weaves taught on this DVD are:
- European 4-in-1
- Birdcage (AKA Byzantine)
- European 6-in-1
- Full Persian
- Japanese 12-in-2
- Half Persian 4-in-1
When I published this DVD in 2004 I had already been teaching chainmaille jewelry for several years, and had learned as much about teaching from my students as they’d learned about chainmaille from me. I crammed the DVD full of the tricks that have helped my students understand which ring goes where. And, unlike my in-person students, you’ll be able to freeze-frame the complex steps and replay them as many times as you want.
