Greetings From On Board The SS Tesla! 04/17/11

Hello FESTers!

This is Capt. Maricruz speaking and i have encountered a few FEST Team Member shops that sell all kinds of amazing items! One of these sellers caught my attention because it was chain mail jewelry and I have been wanting to learn how to make chain mail jewelry for a while! So I am going to present to you a tutorial on how to do chain mail so that you can make jewelry out of it or do whatever you like with it:

This tutorial is brought to you by the good folks at They have other tutorials too for you all to check out!

Step 1: Make a strip of E4-1. It should be somewhat longer than you want the final chain to be.
Step 2: Put a ring through two edge rings. This is a TE connection. Subsequent rings will have both TE and AE connections.
Step 2a: A closeup of how the rings should be arranged.
Step 3: Add another ring, above the ring added in the previous. This time, there will be a AE connection on the left, and a TE connection on the right.
Step 3a: A closeup of how the rings should be arranged.
Step 4: Continue all the way across the side. Note that the last ring should have only an AE connection.
Step 5: Do the same thing on the other side...
Step 6: Adding rings all the way across...
Step 7: To the end of the side.
Step 8: Now we can start adding E4-1 rings to the top to finish up the chain.
Step 9: All the way across...
Step 10: To the end of the chain.

Good Luck and Godspeed,


Capt. Maricruz
