What if you had the opportunity to learn the  tips and tricks needed to create masterful, professional and stunning  knit/crocheted/woven chains?


What if you had the opportunity to learn from Master Goldsmith, Kent Raible, who has used this technique to create truly original works for over thirty years?


You've worked hard to create beautifully executed jewelry.

Now you want to make masterfully executed hand made

chains to accentuate your jewelry.

You're ready to fast track your skills by learning from a Master.

We've got you covered.


How Would You Feel If …

  • You had more confidence in your ability to create professional level chains so that your chains match the level of your jewelry?
  • Your creativity was unleashed by being able to create versatile , supple, hand made chains in varying diameters and thicknesses,  that you could use in bracelets, neck collars and more, opening new possibilities of what you could create for your collection ?
  • You learned the fabrication skills to create a lovely, functional and strong 'Shepherd's Hook' style clasp, so that you have  finished functional chains, similar to what Kent Raible has used in his collection for over 30 years?
  • You had a master teacher by your side  teaching you the techniques, tips and tricks  they have mastered over several decades of  making hundreds of chains?


Hello, I'm Kent Raible,

and I'm here to tell you that this is exactly what I've done.

I have made and sold hundreds of pieces of jewelry using this chain weaving style, which I call...

'The Spiral Loop Chain'

And it is 100% possible for you to make chains as masterfully as I have!

As you may be aware, all of my online mentored courses are focused on helping you expand your bench skills, and open up your unlimited creative design potential.


The Spiral Loop Chain (also referred to as the Viking Knit chain, hand woven, or crocheted chain) is fairly easy,  and it's faster to make, and lighter weight than most styles of hand made chain.


Once you get this technique down, you will be off and running, with a new technique to masterfully make gorgeous hand made chains, and the sky is the limit with what you can create!

Meet Your Master Instructor

Hi, I’m Kent Raible

In my mid 20’s I sold all my possessions and went to Europe on an extended biking trip, and somehow managed to stay for almost two years. I attended a jewelry program at a German trade school, and it was there that I was introduced to different approaches than I would have seen in America. I eventually developed a unique way of building jewelry pieces, using unconventional torches and solder less joining techniques. My work is unique because I do so many things differently!


Now I want to share what I have learned with you. I am streamlining my knowledge so that I can offer you a direct route to up-level your skills in specific areas. Your palette of skills to draw from is about to get bigger! You will be able to dive deeper into the creative manipulation of metal and create more beautifully executed and complex designs. These videos, and the work we will do together, are designed to improve your technical prowess, and enhance your creative abilities.

Once your enrollment is complete, you will receive your ‘Welcome email’ with your password and links to the ‘Spiral Loop Chain’ membership site home page. There you will find a video from Kent, downloadable tools and materials lists, and more. 

What It Is Like To Study With Kent Raible...

Kent Raible is not just a modern master. Kent is not just the best granulation artist around. He is not just a fabulous goldsmith and jewelry designer. Kent is also one of the best teachers in the world. He learned at the feet of masters in Germany, as I did,  and then he developed his skills even further. Kent taught hundreds of students at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts. Kent knows his stuff, loves what he does and shares his passion eagerly. His methods are complete and easier than you might think. Take this opportunity! You will only regret it if you don’t.

Kent is a master of granulation and a wonderful instructor- He also is the best fabricator I have ever known. I teach cloisonné workshops and I have brought Kent in to work with my students. He is very approachable, attentive and thorough, I would love to have him teach in my California classroom anytime!


Truthfully, Kent has inspired plenty of improvement in my work and helped to reignite the passion for making exceptional pieces. I am fusing rather than soldering more and more to build settings. The metalwork on my cloisonné pieces has grown dramatically and I will continue to learn from Kent whenever the opportunity arises. Studying with Kent online is an exciting prospect. I prefer my own tools and workspace, I prefer my own schedule and I prefer my own projects- Now I can have all of this and get Kent’s help too!

Being around Kent is a gift.  By any measure, he is the most gifted teacher I have ever had the pleasure of being around.  He is a combination of teacher, savant, and genius whose ability to share his incredible knowledge is amazing.  For example, in class he may demonstrate something that seems difficult or impossible and you say to yourself “I can’t do that” – but guess what – with a combination of his teaching skill and his patience, you find yourself achieving things you never thought possible.  I always feel grateful and inspired after any interaction with Kent – he is one of the greatest living goldsmiths – a true genius and a remarkable teacher. I can’t wait to be a student in his new workshop!

I was THRILLED to be able to get into Kent Raible’s ‘Going Tubular’ class.  I have admired his work for a long time and was eager to learn anything he was willing to teach!  I absolutely loved the format of the web-based course. The modules were well organized, clear, easy to understand, and the step-by-step closeups of the work were very high quality. 


Kent is genuinely interested in our progress, our challenges and our successes. 


I was initially very intimidated in the class, but his desire and excitement to see us succeed put that to rest .  I give the Going Tubular class a 5 out of 5 star rating.  I am excited for the next set of students taking the class – it was fantastic for me.  I learned SO much.  You won’t find a better instructor!
