Jens Pind Chain Tutorial

The Jens Pind chain is one of my new favorite patterns that I used liberally throughout the upcoming 3rd book. The Jens Pind chain pattern looks simple, but it requires precise placement of each ring so that every third ring maintains a consistent angle of overlap. To help simplify this assemble, I use three metal rings; silver, bronze, and copper in a repeating pattern, so every third ring is the same metal type to better see the overlapping pattern.

The example image is a close-up of a Jens Pind chain, crafted by assembling 16-gauge, 4mm ID jump rings.
