Right, so among the many things I’ve been up to recently . . . one of those was taking a chainmaille class. I wasn’t taking it to make armor or anything like that. No, it was to make pretty jewelry.
The first chainmaille pattern we learned was the 6 in 1. It’s pretty basic and I could use it to make chainmaille if I wanted to. But I probably won’t.
We just made a bracelet out of it.
The second one we learned was the Byzantine round. This was my favorite. I love the two colors and how round it actually feels. I may actually wear this one.
And for bonus we learned how to make scale maille flowers. Scale maille is basically plate armor stuff.
All of these was aluminum so very light and since it’s anodized aluminum, pretty colors as well. The supplies were purchased from The Ring Lord.
It was lots of fun! I hope I have time to make more stuff in the future. I may or may not have already bought some more rings 🙂
pretty. can’t something as methodical as this be made by machine?
Yes, but where’s the fun in that?
