Jens Pind’s Linkage

Interchangeable Big Hole Bead Chain Maille Bracelet Kit

After the launch of our Jens Pind’s Linkage Interchangeable Big Hole Bead Chain Maille Necklace kit we have had several requests to make a kit for a bracelet length version of it. So here it is! We hope you like it. :)

 

This chain maille kit is intended for people with mailling experience who know how to weave “Jens Pind’s Linkage.” It does NOT teach you Jens Pind’s Linkage. The rings used in this kit are far too tiny to learn Jens Pind’s Linkage with! We will shortly be launching a kit (using larger rings!) that will teach you this lovely weave.

 

This is a very useful Jens Pind’s Linkage (JPL) bracelet that is fine enough to thread through big hole beads, and allows you to change your beads at will, making this bracelet extremely versatile. And of course you can wear it without beads too!

 

And if you add a little extra length by using the “Add an Inch” extender ring packs you could make a very attractive anklet, which you can wear either with or without beads. Thank you Izzy for this idea!

 

Included in the kit are sufficient sterling silver jump rings and two sterling silver trigger clasps to make a bracelet that is up to 8” in length. If you wish to make a longer bracelet then simply choose the appropriate number of “Add an Inch” extender ring packs; each ring pack contains enough rings to make an extra inch of chain. So, for example, if you would like to make a 9” bracelet then you would need the basic kit plus one “Add an Inch” extender ring pack.

 

As your big hole bead collection grows, you may need to lengthen your bracelet a little. The more beads you put on it, the longer it will need to be. As a rough guide, for a full complement of beads, your bracelet will need to be approximately 2 inches longer that your wrist measurement, although this may vary depending on the size of your beads.

 

The narrow oval jump ring threads through your beads; this oval jump ring is wider than the chain, and is a maximum of 3.75 mm wide when measured across the narrower side. This bracelet is compatible with most commercially available big hole beads as well as the many gorgeous and unique artisan silver cored beads made by talented lampworkers.

 

This kit contains very easy to follow step by step instructions with explanatory photographs. Please note that this kit is for the bracelet only, and does not contain any big hole beads. The above silver cored big hole bead was made by Isabelle Anderson of Flame and Glass.

 

In addition to the kit all you need are two pairs of smooth jawed pliers and a surface to work on, for example a beading mat or a piece of velvet. A useful pick is included in the kit.
