My multi-chain necklace has become a staple in my wardrobe because it incorporates it all. Here’s a quick 10 step tutorial on how to make your own bulky bauble.

mad in crafts: DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap.

M.A.I.L. - Maille Artisans International League - Jens Pind Linkage 3 and variants - Definitions, differences and distinguishing characteristics - Submitted by Titus This article is about a magnificent spiral weave called Jens Pind Linkage (JPL) and its variants. In the following chapters I will explain how regular JPL is constructed, and how the variants are related to the original chain. Also, I will introduce a relatively simple method to distinguish between different JPL variants. You don't necessarily have to be familiar with the weave(s), but knowing the basics helps a lot. At least a good thing to do before reading further is to take a look at some tutorials about JPL and perhaps make a small length of the chain. One tutorial for weaving JPL can be found here: Jens Pind Linkage 3 (CGI).
