Chain Maille Jewelry Kits

 Chain Maille Jewelry kits are a great way to get started with this ancient art.

Chain maille is the art of linking metal rings together to form an almost impenetrable chain. It's original purpose was to provide body armour for soliders but over time the skill was also recognised for its beauty in it's own right.

By combining rings of metal together beautiful chain maille designs can be formed which make stunning and eye catching pieces of jewelry.

Making chain maille jewelry is definitely more complicated that ordinary bead work but if you're already familiar with the techniques of jewelry making, such as using jump rings and pliers, it can be a natural next step.
