My first order

I am SOOOoooo excited! I've received my first order to make chain maille choker and earrings. The lady wanted a chunky chain and chose this Turkish round weave. Last night I've ordered loads of sterling silver wire and findings. I can't wait when I can start coiling, sawing and weaving :)

A lot of wire

I had enough buying small packs of wire. 10 packs that I bought not so long ago have already run out. Today I made a coil from the last one.

I decided to get myself a big pack. Yep, 1 kilo to be precise.

Chainmaille bracelet - braid

I wanted to make this bracelet for a long time. Now it is finished. The weave used is European 4-in-1

I had to make more than 800 rings. It takes a while but very good for meditation

New saw and new chainmaille bracelet

Thanks to my virtual friend Elvira I now have the jeweller's saw!

Straight away I've coilled some wire and sawed it into many rings for my next gorgeous project.

Some 6mm round Swarovski crystals
And this is the result

Byzantine bracelet

A long-long time ago my granddad gave my nan a chain with very beautiful pattern. I was mesmorized by it since then.  And now, when I started to learn about chainmaille I've found this pattern. It is called Byzantine.

Here is my byzantine chain. I've used 3 colours for the wire - silver, gold and copper.

Daisy chain choker and bracelet

Here is a daisy choker and bracelet

This is japanese 12 in 2 weave. I only had to open and close large rings.

There are a few more chainmaille weaves to learn - byzantine, persian and elfweave. I am sure there are more weaves I haven't discovered yet...

I am so in love with chainmaille!

While I was learning this pattern I've discovered an on-line tutorial that shows how to make this dragonscale pattern almost twise faster then in the book I have.

Chain maille bracelet

Recently I've discovered a new jewellery making technic - chain maille or chainmail. It looks like there is no agreement about the exact spelling.

As my first attempt I've created this lovely bracelet.
