Use Helm Chain To Make A Trojan Chain Mail Necklace
Helm chain is one of my favorite chain mail weaves. It is not only beautiful, but is easy to make as well. You can make it with one row, like in this tutorial or as sheets where you link several rows together. You can alter it slightly by using different sized rings or different colored rings.
There is only one important thing to remember about this chain mail weave, and that is that the smallest rings must fit comfortably inside the larger ones. If they do, you do not have to pay much attention on the Aspect ratio of the rings, but can combine sizes, metals and colors as you please.
Helm chain is sometimes called Parallel chain, so you may sometimes bump into that name instead of Helm chain. But the weave is the same and, as I mentioned above: easy to do. So are you ready to start? OK! Here we go:
What you need:
- Champaign colored anodized aluminum rings, 18 gauge, 6,35 mm inner diameter (ID)
- Black colored anodized aluminum rings, 20 gauge, 3,9 mm ID.
- Two chain nose pliers
- Bronze colored cube beads
- Galvanized Pink Rose Delica see beads #11
- One clasp copper or bronze colored
