January 2, 2008 ~ Chris Franchetti Michaels, Editor

In this issue:

  • New Article: How to Make a Byzantine Chain
  • New Article: Byzantine Chain Tips

Happy New Year! (Can you believe it's 2008?)

Today's first new article is a demonstration of how I make the basic Byzantine chain using unsoldered ("open") jump rings. I love the thickness of this chain, and that it can easily be used for both women's and men's jewelry.

In the second article, I've listed some additional techniques that can help you create the look and quality you're looking for in your own Byzantine designs.

Until next time, keep creating!

~ Chris
