What do ya think of these?

Tuesday, November 20, 2007
Well...it's not lampwork beads this time...it's chainmaille. Yeppers sometimes I get off the torch and Bob isn't playing with his rocks all the time. All the below have several more pictures but I've got them up in the Etsy store. I just didn't figure ya'll wanted to see multiple view of chainmaille.

The below is European 6 in 1 round weave with 4.5mm sterling rings in 20g wire. The bracelet weighs 1.9oz, has a sterling silver clasp, and is 8.5 inches in length. It took 550 rings to make this dramatic bracelet. Just in case you are interested...we can adjust the length.


Half Persian 3 in 1 (aka Snake) with 6.5mm sterling rings in 16g wire. The bracelet weighs 1.2oz, has a sterling silver clasp, and is 7.5 inches in length. It took 100 rings to make this bracelet.
European 8 in 1 weave with 4mm sterling rings in 21g wire. The bracelet weighs .7oz, has a sterling silver clasp, and is 7 inches in length. It took 280 rings to make this bracelet.
Here's a close up...this one is one of Bob's bracelets. He's kinda the chainmaille guru in this casa.
This is a Turkish Round Byzanitine weave with 2.5mm sterling rings in 21g wire. The bracelet weighs .6oz, has a sterling silver clasp, and is 6 3/4 inches in length. It took 375 rings to make this bracelet.

That's it for the picture show today.
Have a happy, creative day!

Hi Moon!
I love all of your chainmaille pieces...just blows me away. Does it take forever to make with all of those rings? And I'm so happy for you with the success of your Etsy shop...your new Silver and Chunky Monkey sets are some of my favorites. Thanks for your recent compliments!
