Mesh and Rosettes

by Rebeca Mojica

Learn a classic chainmaille weave used in medieval armor, European 4-in-1 (aka Mesh) and use it to create modern jewelry. A perfect project for those relatively new to chainmaille. The instructions also show you how to make Rosettes, an easy variation of the mesh weave.


Example shown right uses copper rings for the Mesh bracelet (top) and Jewelry Brass for the Rosettes (bottom).

"I am a beginner and Rebeca's Mesh and Rosettes was my first attempt. ... The easily downloaded PDF instructions were a breeze to follow due to clear highlighted photos. The troubleshooting portion of the lesson was helpful. I made my first maille bracelet in a couple of hours in 1 afternoon session!!! Thanks Blue Buddha!"
