I took a chainmail earring class and it was so intense. Now, intense is zenful for me. It means I focus on the task and everything else ceases to exist. I love wearing earrings, so this class was right up my alley. Chainmail is not easy by any stretch of the imagination and I would never have attempted to make these by way of YouTube, but in a class with a teacher, they were not so bad. If you get a chance to take a class, I recommend trying them.
