More Chainmaille!

Here are a few more pieces I've worked on this month:

This is a wide cuff bracelet in the wedding knot weave,
done in black, silver, and gold.

This is a necklace of byzantine chainmaille and copper crystals.

This necklace is full persian with different sized rings.

Another necklace in full persian, with a Cruella DeVille flair :)

This is a 3-row crystal bracelet.

This bracelet has tiny pearls woven into a three row wedding knot weave.

This necklace was named "Nefertiti" by a friend for it's collar style.

Fancy Chainmaille!

I took some basic chainmaille weaves to new levels to create some sparkly and fancy pieces!

This necklace is done in full persian weave, in shiny copper and black nickel.

This bracelet and earring set are a variation of Japanese 6 in 1,
in silver and black, with silver crystals.

Over the holiday I experimented with some new chainmaille weaves:
This one has many names, wedding knot, helms weave,
parallel chain... but I just think it's pretty in black and gold!

This dainty one is called camelot, there are 26 rings per flower! 

This is the full persian weave in antique copper.

This is the wedding knot chain again, in black and silver and slightly larger rings.

Variations of the Japanese 6 in 1 weave, in black silver and gold.

This bracelet has scherzo weve (silver knots) with blue hematite crystals. 

This is known as bird in a cage, or pearl in a cage. 

This flat weave is called 6 in 1, or mermaid, and I used antique copper and black.  

This is full persian again, in black and silver, with black crystals.

And I made a nice long chain out of all of my random extra rings!
