This year’s remake of “The Great Gatsby” inspired me to make several pieces reminiscent of the Jazz Age. Using the easy chain maille technique of weaving links into Mobius rosettes, I attached these rosettes to each other with another trio of links, for a substantial look.
To make the drops, I handwrapped eleven freshwater pearls and attached them to the bracelet. Then came the hard part: finding the right clasp.
An Etsy shop specializing in vintage jewelry components had just what I was looking for. I made the earrings using the same simple chain maille weave and Bali-style earwires.
