Jewelry is very prevalent, but jewelry that directly compliments your personal style or makes your statement for you perfectly is not prevalent. Find out some ways this is so with chainmaille jewelry. Discover a craft that ends up as a fine bracelet you will treasure for a long time to come.

1. It is a thrill to make your own jewelry

You will be walking on air after your first successful chainmaille jewelry project. Why? Because there are few things that can compare to making something precious with your own hands. The excellent results you achieve will bounce back to you every time you notice your new chainmaille bracelet. It will be even greater when a friend notices your handiwork.

2. There is no other kind of jewelry that is so simple to make but so professional looking

There simply is not another kind of handmade jewelry that yields such great results. There is no complicated soldering or equipment necessary. You do not need a jeweler's shop to make this kind of jewelry. You need only pliers, jump rings, and good instructions. This jewelry will last a lifetime and take only a few hours to make.

3. Save yourself a lot of money

When you make your own chainmaille jewelry you save because you do not have to pay for the labor. You do this part yourself. But since you make jewelry for your friends, to sell or for yourself it is fun and does not feel laborious. You think of how happy your fine piece of jewelry will make someone and the labor becomes pleasant anticipation.

4. Stress relieving "meditation"

Your day is filled with unpredictability and many times stress. There is so much multi-tasking these days. When you make your own chainmaille jewelry you essentially are putting links together. You start with a few links and a pattern. You watch it grow and see your progress immediately. Seeing the repeating pattern get longer is great therapy. Since there is a little predictability here you are soothed and relaxed. Your simple jewelry project just made you feel better about your day. You can cherish the thought that, "I can wear this great thing I made."

5. Nourish your creative side

Making your own jewelry is much like play for a kid. The risks are small, nothing is expected, no boss will critique you, no pressure to make a deadline, you are set. These are "hot house" conditions for creative jewelry making. Experiment, try this new craft, making your own chainmaille jewelry. What is there to loose?

6. Finally make your chain jewelry just the way you like it

Tired of mass produced jewelry? Sure mass produced makes sense with automobiles and DVD players, but jewelry is different. Jewelry is the most personal statement you make in what you wear. It has to fit you, physically, but more so it has to speak about something you care about or something that makes sense to you. If you make your own chainmaille jewelry, which is a perfect medium to make quality jewelry, you can have it just the way you want it. You decide everything. How long, how thick, how heavy, how thin, or lacey, how wild, how conservative, in short, it is up to you.

Using modestly priced sterling silver jump rings you will be able to make stunning high end jewelry that rivals Tiffanys. The trick is in the patterns and the consistency you achieve in your chainmaille jewelry. At http://www.culturejewelry.com we offer a world class how to e-book you can download today.

Matthew Woodbury, author and jewelry designer, comes from a family of jewelers, artists, writers, and engineers going back 155 years. He is showing how all that is necessary to put culture back into jewelry is to use your hands.
