Celtic Weave Tutorials for Chain Maille
Celtic Weaves is another in my series of chain maille tutorials.Â While not an actual family, there are quite a few weaves that are made with the same basic pattern.Â But it’s where the patterns diverge is where the fun begins!
The Celtic patterns are rather interesting.Â Their origins are from Europe, but the weave structure is decidedly Japanese.Â Then to make it ever more intriguing, both orbital and captive ring techniques are used.Â So you learn a lot when learning these chain maille weaves.
The the undoubted start of these weaves is Celtic Visions (which you will learn), you’ll start out easy with the Half Helm.Â From there you’ll move to the traditional Helm, and then onto Celtic Visions.Â Then you’ll see how to make the fun pattern called Celtic Kisses!Â These patterns build on each other, so I encourage you to at least read through Half Helm and Helm before you try Celtic Visions.
However…the Half Helm and Helm (also known as Parallel) are undeniably wonderful in their own right.
What You Will Learn?
Quite naturally, you will learn all the weaves:
- Half Helm— I don’t quite know if this is a new pattern I came up with, but in playing with Helm, I came up with this super-easy intro to the Celtic weaves.
- Helm — This is the basis for the other two weaves in the tutorial.Â It can be dressed up or down, making it quite versatile.
- Celtic Visions — An amazing chain maille pattern that looks exotic but is easy to learn.
- Celtic Kisses — This is another of my,”I wonder what would happen if I tried…” weaves.
Of course you’ll learn not only how to make these weaves, but also how to incorporate them into jewelry.
I almost forgot — while I do the demos in 18 gauge rings, I give you the sizes you need if you want to make your chain in a different gauge.Â And I also provide approximate ring counts for you.
There are loads of photos, with up-close shots so you know exactly where you need to put that next jump ring.Â Especially useful when it comes to the captive/orbital rings!
