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.

The starting point is obviously calculating a piece of wire. I use the circumference of the bangle I need and the diameter of the wire I'm using to work out how much I need, and then get my saw out. The old saying "measure twice, cut once" is doubly true when it comes to sterling silver!
