WELCOME to my Tutorial Shop! You can purchase downloadable PDF tutorials for several of my Tiny Scale jewelry designs below - supplies NOT included. For most projects, the basic techniques are presented first. Each project includes a list of required supplies and step-by-step project instructions. Both techniques and instructions include clear color photos to illustrate the process. Many tutorials include a Design Inspiration section with photos of design alternatives and variations (these may become future tutorials if there is enough interest).
Due to the nature of digital products, there will be NO REFUNDS, EXCHANGES or RETURNS. Please choose carefully.
These patterns involve the use of very small jump rings and tiny scales and, therefore, are for maillers with an INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED skill level. Experience with opening, closing and using jump rings, scales and pliers, as well as proficiency with essential chain maille weaves (Byzantine/Box Chain, European 4-in-1, and Half Persian 3-in-1), are required and assumed. Therefore, information on these subjects will NOT be included in the tutorials.
NOTE: Due to small variations in jump rings between batches and vendors, I cannot guarantee the sizes I've listed in the tutorials will work as described. You may need additional jump rings or may need to adjust sizing or ring placement to achieve the desired result. You will often be required to work in tight spaces. Please do not purchase tutorials if are not comfortable working with very small rings, working in tight spaces, or making sizing/weaving adjustments.
UPDATE (March 2017): Recently, new tiny scale colors have been introduced (yellow and pink). These tiny scales are made of thicker metal. When working at the micro level, small variations in the materials can cause difficulties in producing desired results. The patterns below were designed for the original, thinner tiny scales. You can read more about it in my 3-part blog post comparing tiny scales.
KITS!!!!!!!! Kits for some of my tutorials (marked with an *) are now available from Metal Designz. More to come! Metal Designz has made samples to ensure that the jump ring/scale combinations they recommend will produce successful results.
