PROJECT KITS

I will have a selection of Can You BeWeave It? Chainmaille Project Kits to choose from, but not all colors will be available for every Pattern. If there is a specific color/Pattern combo you would like to make, select your Project Kit online and choose the "Pickup" delivery option when you checkout. Your Project Kits will be waiting for you in class.
(Shipping Charges should not be added to your order when you select the "Pickup" delivery option. If that happens, let me know of the glitch and the charges will be refunded back to you via PayPal.)
If you'd rather skip selecting a Project Kit online and prefer to put your Project Kit selection in Fate's hands, that's fine, too.

 

FAQ
What will I learn?
I will go over the basics about the tools and supplies used, how the jump rings that are used in chainmaille are made, and how to open and close the rings to weave them together. You can select among 7 different chainmaille patterns:

I have basic Project Kits to make earrings, a bracelet, or a necklace for the following weaves. 
You are welcome to try as many patterns and kits that you like. Some people like to get a start on multiple patterns, and then finish them at home. If you stick a toe in and find it's not for you, you're not committed to a bunch of tools and supplies that you'll never use again. 

The Basic Pattern Kits are recommended for chainmaille beginners, but if you have some experience or just want to throw caution to the wind and have a go at the Flag of Sweden Necklace, GO FOR IT!
 

Can I bring my own tools?
You can bring tools, magnifiers, and any gadget that you think will help you in class or you like to try out. You will need to use 2 pairs of pliers to open and close the jump rings. They can be Flat Nose, Chain Nose, Bent Nose... Pretty much whatever feels comfortable in your hand and has smooth jaws (no teeth to grip and mar the wire). I'll have tools you can use in class, and a variety of pliers and supplies available for purchase after class.
