I made a mistake and bought the wrong size jump rings for a bracelet project (embarrassingly, several times), and then I had to also buy the right sized ones. Now I have more jump rings in my house than the bead store has! (I'm not kidding, I have hundreds of them, LOL) So I decided to do something constructive with them and teach myself chainmaille.
Little did I know, chainmaille is fun and is just as addicting as beading! Of course, as usual, I jumped in feet first. I could have started with something simple, and probably should have, but hey, why not go all in? I spotted this pattern for a cute little chainmaille cube by lunabellvarga, and just had to have one of my own.
Thank goodness the directions were very clear and there were good photos! It was still a bit confusing in spots, but I did manage to successfully make a little cube. Now I'm on the hunt for more chainmaille projects to work with.
Here is a photo of my finished cube...
