  • How to make a link bracelet. Byzantine Weave Chainmaille Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    What you need:

    4mm Jump Rings (made using 0.8mm wire) I have used Silver Plated here and you can see how to make them by clicking here.

    A Piece of Scrap Wire This gives you something to grip while you get the first few rings worked.

    A Toggle Clasp Any closure will do but I prefer toggles.

    Two Pairs of Flat Nosed Pliers I use a long and a short just because its what I have and am now used to but any will do as long as they are smooth so as not to mark the metal.
