Learn the speed weave technique for European 4-in-1 chainmaille with guest designer, Damien. Follow along to create your own chainmaille bracelets and jewelry using jump rings and Oh! Ring components.
Pass one light blue aluminum 12mm jump ring through four antique white 12mm Oh! Rings™ then close. Set the rings so they lie flat and so rings overlap.
Weave one light blue jump ring into the two top Oh! Rings on the left and right of the center ring, being careful to not disturb their arrangement, and two new Oh! Rings.
Tip: Place a piece of tape on the established rings to keep them in line.
Arrange the two Oh! Rings in the same position as in Step 1.
Tip: If for any reason they do not work into the weave, remove and reposition.
Repeat to create a five blue jump ring wide section of chainmaille.
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to create a total of six sets of chainmaille sections.
Pass one light blue jump ring through the top two antique white Oh! Rings on one side of two sections of chainmaille then close to connect the sets.
Pass one light blue jump ring through the second Oh! Ring on each side and the next adjacent Oh! Ring on each side then close.
Repeat to connect the next adjacent antique white Oh! Ring on each side to the previous set.
Repeat Step 4 to connect each of the six sections of chainmaille.
Using one light blue 12mm jump ring, connect the top two antique white Oh! Rings on one end of the chainmaille to the top loop on one portion of the 5-strand slide lock clasp.
Repeat to connect the previous Oh! Ring and the next adjacent Oh! Ring to the next loop on the clasp.
Continue to attach each set of Oh! Rings to a loop on the clasp.
Repeat to attach the opposite end of the chainmaille to the second portion of the clasp.
