Chain mail bracelet from Kat's kit!!


No, I'm not being cute.  The fabulous Kat Wisniewski sent me a kit for a bracelet that is featured in her new book, New Connections in Chain Mail Jewelry with Rubber and Glass Rings (my review at the link).  I don't work in chain mail at all except for a very few small pieces, just for experiments, so I had a certain amount of trepidation upon receiving the kit.  All those jump rings (well, duh!).


It turns out that as long as you follow the instructions, which are super-easy to follow, you will end up with a fabulous piece of jewelry!  Who knew?

Arched Ascent Bracelet, designed by Kat Wisniewski
Inexpertly assembled by Cyndi Lavin
My biggest challenge was closing the jump rings properly.  But not to worry...there are a few extra in each size needed just in case you really mess one up (I did!  Twice.).  Still, I think I ended up with a very presentable bracelet that I'll be proud to wear.  You can find Kat's kits on her website, New Connections Book.


As regards FTC disclosure guidelines: I have received this chain mail kit free of charge from Kat in order to write this review for you.  I have not been paid for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received.
