Yesterday morning we held a chainmaille workshop at the studio. Students were to create a bracelet with Japanese 12 in 2 weave. This is one of my favourite chainmaille weaves as it has quite a bit of weight to it (with approx. 400 rings) and looks very classy when finished with a beautiful clasp.
The workshop was taught by the talented Karen Donald who is also a polymer clay artist and a seedbeader – yes she does it all! Our kits were supplied by Debbie at Aussie Maille and everyone commented on how beautiful the rings were to work with and how well they were cut – thank you Deb!!
Just about everyone managed to complete their bracelet in the set time period. It was great to see the look of achievement on their faces when they added those last rings to a project they thought would never end!
