Hodo (Sidewalk) Bracelet

by Rebeca Mojica


Rebeca was inspired to create this bracelet after seeing a tiled sidewalk pattern of squares and octagons. Likewise, the Hodo weave combines Japanese 4-in-1 with 8-in-1 techniques. The result is an intricate pattern of alternating small and large rings. Hodo is Japanese for sidewalk or path, hence the name of this pattern (not to be confused with the Hoodoo weave!)

Prerequisite: Proficiency in at least 3 chainmaille weaves. Knowledge of Japanese 12-in-2 (Japanese Lace) extremely helpful.

Example shown uses copper rings
