(All measurements refer to Outside Diameter, O.D.)

The top sample shows how this weave looks done with the tutorial. The bottom one shows the same weave with extra rings and beads added. Both samples were done with 5mm and 7mm 20g rings. The beads are size 8/0 seed beads. You can try 18g. 6mm with 18g. 8mm rings too.

Step 1. Begin by making a 2 in 1 chain. You could also do 2 in 2, maybe 3 in 3, depending on ring size and gauge. It's up to you. If you plan on adding beads, you should probably do 2 in 1, and use 20 gauge rings.

Step 2. Make a separate overlay by adding 4 small rings to 1 large ring. This piece will lay over the small rings you have in your beginning chain.

Take the over lay rings, and place them over 2 of the small rings, then turn your chain over and add another large ring to the overlay rings to attach them to the chain. Continue down the length of your chain.

Your chain should now look something like this. That's all there is to the basic part of this weave. Have fun embellishing and using different sizes of rings and colors. Let your imagination run wild.  The possibilities are numerous.

Here is how the beads are added in the sample above.
