Joining Half Persian 3 in 1
(from CGMaille)
Article © MAIL User: Phong

Half Persian 3 in 1 can be used with great effect in cabochon wrapping or finger rings. Connecting the two ends of the chain may pose more of a challenge than you think. Once you get it though, it's quite easy. Part of the trick is realizing that Persian weaves connect rings with different slants; the rings link through the /// rings. rings don't go through each other. The other part is to make sure you keep track of which rings are and which are ///. If you get lost and find yourself looking at a tangled mess of rings, it may be easier to take it apart and start from scratch, rather than trying to figure the mess out. It also may take quite a bit of fiddling to get the rings arranged where they should be, so don't be in a rush to connect everything. Better to take it slow and make sure every ring's in its place, and then connect the next rings. Also, note that you won't be adding any extra rings once you make the initial chain. You'll only be opening the end rings. Half Persian 3-1 can be made with AR's down to about AR of 4.

Step 1: Make a chain of HP3-1 equal to the final length you want. The end of the chain should not have the extra dangly ring.

Step 2: Curl the chain around, so the ends are next to each other as shown in the picture. Note that the silver rings are now on top and the gold rings are on bottom. This isn't a problem, but you should probably be aware of it.

Step 3: Connect the outer silver ring to the outer gold ring. They should stay below the inside rings. Depending on the AR of the rings, they may slide around.

Step 4: Connect the inside rings. They should go above the rings connected in the previous step.
