This class is the ideal introduction to using Rhinestone Montee Beads with chainmaille. First, you will learn to mount rhinestones onto jump rings. Then, make basic configurations that can be worked into jewelry patterns. Once the rhinestones have been mounted onto jump rings, learn to use basic Japanese Chainmaille techniques to link rhinestone components together. We will also discuss jump ring materials; the different brands and qualities of rhinestones and how different sizes of rhinestones can be configured into this attractive pattern.
