Marilyn Says:

Are you thinking about trying out chain mail when you make your next piece of jewelry?

There's a growing interest in this very old craft (think armour and middle ages) that is gaining in popularity. The evidence includes a growing stream of new chain mail books being published, projects in wire work and bead magazines, and advertising by vendors of jump rings and pliers suited for chain mail.

Just as bead work has peyote stitch, and knitting has the purl stitch, chain mail also has traditional patterns or weaves.

Here are my Top 5 patterns/tips that I think every beginner should master-along with the best, FREE tutorial links I could find.
