Starter Card for the Half Persian Chainmaille Weave
Half Persian chainmaille is very difficult to begin because of all the rings you must hold in place. This pre-drilled card makes it easy. Makes up to 6 chains.
The card is make from semi-rigid, clear plastic. The pre-drilled holes will easily work with up to 18 gauge wire. In fact, this card is exactly what I use when making the Half Persian 4 in 1 and Half Persian 3 in 1. The placement of the holes for rings is specifically measured to help you make this weave.
No shipping fees at checkout: the price already includes shipping costs.
MULTIPLE USES: MAKES 6 CHAINS
This card has enough holes to create 6 Half Persian starter chains (2 starter chains per row, 3 rows of holes).
Why This Card is Useful
The problem with the Half Persian chainmaille design is that you have to hold 4 loose rings in place while weaving another ring through them, Then, you have to hold all 5 rings in place while you add another loose ring and weave through all those rings! My fingers can’t do it—at least not easily.
I use a card just like this one to hold 6 rings in place, which makes weaving in 3 more rings super easy. Once those rings are in place, the weave will keep its shape and design without turning into a jumble of mixed-up rings. Simply cut the plastic to open the holes and remove your starter chain. Now, continue weaving the chain.
