Jens Pind’s Linkage

Interchangeable Big Hole Bead Chain Maille Necklace Kit

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) necklace that is fine enough to thread through big hole beads, and allows you to change your beads at will, making this necklace extremely versatile. And of course you can wear it without beads too!


Included in the kit are sufficient sterling silver jump rings and two sterling silver trigger clasps to make a necklace that is up to 16” in length. If you wish to make a longer necklace 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 an 18” necklace then you would need the basic kit plus two “Add an Inch” extender ring packs.


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 necklace 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 necklace only, and does not contain any big hole beads. The above big hole silver cored bead was made by Kaz of At The Edge.


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.
