Chain Maille uses small jump rings to create jewelry. Learn the basics of opening and closing jump rings and the fundamentals of making jewelry with unsoldered rings. Weaves will include, Byzantine and parallel. Instructor Kenn Haring suppies all wire. The process of winding, cutting and polishing rings will be demonstrated. The only tools needed are two pairs of jewelry pliers - flat nose or bent nose. Bring your own or you may borrow from the instructor. An Optivisor or similar magnifying device will be very helpful. The supply fee covers two kits of copper jump rings with clasps plus handouts with tutorials and reference materials. Bring a sack lunch and enjoy making two copper bracelets. Cost is $50 for A3L members or $60 non-members.  Supply fee is $30.  Contact Arrowhead Gallery, 828-668-1100 for more information or to register.
