Intro to Chainmaille Jewelry

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2019
9:30 AM – 11:30 AM

TUITION: $20  MATERIALS: $15 (PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE FEBRUARY 2 TO ALLOW TIME TO ORDER MATERIALS.)

In the 4th century BC chainmaille was a highly versatile and effective type of armor. Today the basic premise is still used in cut-resistant gloves for butchers and woodworkers, as well as shark-resistant wetsuits.

With the availability of brightly colored enameled and anodized metals, chainmaille took on a more fashionable role with the intricate weaves being used for jewelry.

This class will focus on the Byzantine weave. Students will receive the supplies and tools necessary to complete a bracelet. If students learn the Byzantine, we will explore other weaves.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: JESSICA KELLOGG was fascinated in 5th grade by the middle ages. This interest eventually led her to teaching herself the European 4-in-1 weave, using rings she made myself. Over time, she learned more and more complex designs. Today she makes jewelry, keychains, ornaments, fidget toys, scalemaille, and inlaid pictures.
