If you want to learn to make jewelry like JoJo's I would suggest saying you want to learn bead weaving, or you want to work with seed beads. (maybe mention peyote stitch?)

There's wire wrapping, where you can make beads into pendants, and make clasps and connectors.

I think chain mail is a pretty specific technique of interlocking metal rings.

Maybe you can find more helpful info here: http://www.beadandbutton.com/bnb/

Good luck! I haven't done beading in ages and I've been thinking about how I miss it lately.
