Default Chainmaille ! Several Weaves

Hi, FINISHED !!! 30 pages and over 100 photographs of step by step instructions.
It's up ! The cost is $16. Here is a link http://ellenblack.com/catalog.php?category=14
One of the weaves included is Japanese Weave, with some variations.

Starting on 8/28, I'll have CD's available ALSO ! $21 includes shipping in the states. Maybe a slightly higher shipping rate outside the US. Just let me know the shipping address. Thanks, Ellen

Wow, those are beautiful
I've never made chainmaille before but love how it looks and would love to try it, does the tutorial have every step of the process, will there be lots of pictures?
Can a newbie to chainmaille make all these designs? Or are some more difficult than others?
Thanks,
Capri

Since Virginia showed me how to handle my jewelry saw i love to make chainmaille now.
I'd love to have the sample of the 2nd weave from the left. How do you sell them? By each weave? It'll be like e-book? I'm not very good with this kind of computer book. I lost one pattern i bought from Eni a while back and i gave up on buying anything through computer.
Thanks in advance.

Would you mind naming the weaves, please? There's a few there I don't know, yet.

Thank you ! I have:

4 in 1
6 in 1
Box
Full Persian
Japanese Weave, plus a couple variations with this one.

I plan to have more soon.

You are right, that is Jens Pen. And it's not one of my favorites to start.

The picture has some weave that I'll have soon too.

Oh boy, I've been waiting for this thread to get active again! I can't wait to try this and I like what I read up there:
'Her pictures are so clear and her directions so precise...I can't wait for the release!'
Me neither, that picture you put with your original post sucked me right in! It's gorgeous

Default Excellent tutorial!

Oh happy day, I was looking for something to create that was portable! This tutorial is astonishing Ellen, so well done and packed with information. The closeups make it look very do-able too, thank you so much for sharing!

Ellen does great work and writes great instructions. I'd definitely recommend this if you are interested in learning chainmaille.

I am in love with the Persian weave!! I knew the second I saw Ellen's pictures that I had been saving a vintage clasp for a long time for something special, and this was it! Ellen, your instructions and pictures are so clear and easy to follow. Anyone interesting in trying chainmaille should definitely give this a whirl! Next on my list....the 6 in 1!

So glad I found this thread! I just bought Rocio's bead bending tools and have been looking for ideas on how to finish those beads into a bracelet. Can't wait to try my hand at this!

Kate that's gorgeous!!! See everyone! Maybe tomorrow I'll get the nerve to try Persian. Trust me, if Ellen can get it through my thick head (and I think the pics and descriptions did!) then she can do anything maillewise.

Thanks Ellen, Deb and MJ. It was such fun to make last night. I am wearing it still because I can't get over how nice it feels (okay, I am a dork...I keep playing with it! ) I can't wait to try the next one! I'd love to see everyone else's too!
