Choose either contrasting oxidized links or highly polished links look. This chain looks complicated but is quite easy to learn. The second chain is an elegant foxtail chain. Both bracelets require some soldering which will be taught in a very simplified way using small butane torches.All tools will be provided. Kits of pre-cut jump rings of the correct size, gauge, and quantity for each of the bracelets is available from the instructor. The cost of the kit is $165. Add your own designer clasp (not included).
