The kit contains eight ounces of rings (one ounce for most weaves, two ounces for Japanese 12-in-2) in either copper or jewelry brass.
If you’re just learning the weaves on my first DVD, this is the kit to get. Practice with inexpensive material first, and then come back to the weaves that you especially like once your pliers feel ready for precious metals.
Please note that the student kits do not contain any clasps. If you decide that you’d like to turn your practice chains into wearable jewelry, you’ll want some clasps to accompany your kit. I think that the middle size of trigger clasp is the best match for the ring sizes in this kit.
Made to completion, this kit contains enough rings to make roughly…
|European 4-in-1||8 inches||12:18|
|Box Chain||9.5 inches||12:18|
|European 6-in-1||5 inches||12:18|
|Full Persian||9 inches||14:18|
|Japanese 12-in-2||7 inches||9:18
|Half Persian 4-in-1||13 inches||12:18|
