Infinity Link Wide Chain Maille Bracelet

(registration instructions below)

Learn to utilize infinity links within chain maille!   This class does not include instruction for the infinity links – this is a class featuring how to use them.  See the Infinity Link Chain class to learn to make the links.  The clasp is part of the class kit along with the jump rings you will need to complete this project, however it is a play on the Tri-Flourish Pendant Class.  Repetition is your friend with this project.  Chain patterns can be confusing, but I will help you through all of your blunders until you have a fabulous bracelet.

Discipline:  Chain-maille

The use of jump rings in decorative patterns derived from ancient practices.

Level:  Advanced (***)

The links add difficulty, but once the pattern starts to reveal itself, it gets easier.
