Learn how to make your own Jens Pind Bracelet at home with this instructional tutorial and a few simple hand tools; no electricity, soldering, or studio required. This two-page PDF jewelry tutorial illustrates step-by-step how to assemble the amazing Jens Pind chain. This spiraling rope pattern requires that each added ring travels through the previous two rings in proper placement so every third ring lays in a repetitive angling pattern. I use a three-color CGI model to help illustrate this third ring repetitive angling pattern and utilized a tri-metal jump ring kit to teach this pattern at workshops nationwide. Last, but not least, I will illustrate how to correctly terminate both ends of the Jens Pind chain to prevent the pattern from unraveling, which can cause the rings to shift angles down the chain pattern and is very difficult to remedy. The visually simple yet mathematically precise Jens Pind chain is beautiful on its own, but can also be utilized to suspend a centerpiece necklace design, as shown with the Pentagram design.

Although I am protective of my copyright, I do allow individual artisans my permission to sell the finished jewelry design to clients or through consignment art galleries, all I would ask is that you list ‘Designed by: Scott David Plumlee, Handcrafted by: your name’. However, this permission to sell my original jewelry designs is limited to individual artisans who are handcrafting a limited quantity to support their hobby and does not allow for the bulk selling of machine-made, mass-produced replicas of my original jewelry designs.
Inspiring others with my passion for handcrafting beaded chain jewelry is the goal of this Etsy store, and I hope it encourages people to discover the quiet meditative practice of assembling jump rings and spark their curiosity to seek a creative adventure.

Thank you. I had purchased a kit with links and instructions at a bead show, and had found the instructions very lacking. Not enough pictures and was unable to do the chain. With your instructions, with the great pictures and it being well written, I believe I can now actually do this chain correctly. Great tutorial, thank you so much!
Immediate delivery, wonderful message from the seller, clear photos and instructions--and a coupon for a discount on the purchase price. Definitely look forward to making this design and purchasing more patterns from this seller!!
