On a December subzero day in my home studio on
Madeline Island, five creative souls braved the cold temperatures to attend my first Byzantine Bracelet Chainmail class. With a fire flickering in the background and jewelry tools in hand, these Island Elves learned a basic byzantine chainmail technique and how to turn sterling silver jump rings into lovely bracelets.
With a set of simple jewelry pliers and pile of jump rings, anyone with a little patience and desire can create a beautiful bracelet.
I cannot wait to see the completed pieces.

Bracelets can be made in either sterling silver or copper.
Contact me, Elizabeth Ellis, to book your class.
3 week advance planning and preferred materials deposit is required.
Classes are 3 hours and require no special setting other than good light and a flat surface.
Don’t have your own tools? No worries… jewelry tools are available for purchase w/class
