Mobius Chain Maille Bracelet

PROJECT B2082
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
If you are looking to create a feminine chainmaille look, this is the technique for you. By making these tiny spirals you can create a beautiful thin chain bracelet.
Instructions
For a seven inch bracelet, you will make 10 spirals. Please adjust the amount of spirals if you need to adjust the length. For this project please watch our video: How to do a Mobius Spiral in Chainmaille.
  1. From what you learned in the video, make one spiral and add on two smaller jump rings to the spiral and then two jump rings on to that.
  2. Make another spiral. When you add on the two smaller jump rings, you will attach these jump rings to the spiral as well as the outer two jump rings you just added from the previous step.
  3. This is the pattern for the bracelet: One spiral, two jump rings onto the spiral, and two jump rings after that. Then two more jump rings and another spiral. (Please see photo for reference)
  4. To attach the clasp, finish the last spiral, then two jump rings and two more jump rings. On to that last pair of jump rings, open one small jump ring and attach the spring ring clasp. Close the jump ring.
  5. On to the other end, finish the last spiral, then two jump rings and two more jump rings. On to that last pair of jump rings, open one small jump ring. Close the jump ring. Onto that last jump ring, add one more. Close the jump ring.
