I Need Help From All Beaders and Chainmaille experts

I have some larger cabachons that I would love to learn to either chainmaille around them, or bead weave to make a pendant. I am looking for simple, and preferably free tutorials. I have no idea what they are called, so I am having a hard time searching for tutorials. If anyone is willing to help me out, I would very grateful. Thank you, in advance.

If you haven't done chainmaille before then I wouldn't recommend trying to wrap a cab with it. I've done it once and, well, let's just say things almost got smashed. Peyote stitch is always lovely or even RAW. Try embellishing the peyote with natural beads that are complimentary to the cab.

I still would like to learn it, easy or otherwise. Thank you

Melissa, there is a free tut for wrapping a cab here but you may want to go to mailleartisans (google it) to learn Half Persian first. Also, I'd try using aluminum rings first to practice with. :)

Thank you I will look it up. The more I can learn the better.
