Chainmaille earings

19 Feb

Since I’ve been trying to get more accustomed with this Chainmaille technique, I decided to made this pair of earings. They’re made with silver jump rings and light blue glass beads. The effect is quite nice but I’m not sure whether I’m going to wear them myself because they are not exactly my “style“….

Cats’ day

18 Feb

As yesterday was National Cats’ Day here in Italy, I decided to make this Chainmaille bracelet to celebrate it… The pattern is called Helmsweave and I added a little kitty charm and a black glass bead to one end….

Medieval knights’ ornaments

17 Feb

Here is a new technique I’ve been experimenting lately… Chainmaille or Chainmail, like those wore by the Medieval knights  as protective armors in battle…. basically it is made with linking rings together to form various patterns. There are tons of patterns out there that have been known since ancient times and gradually, various ornate chainmail weaves and ring patterns have come into modern use for jewelry to make stylish bracelets, necklaces, earings, etc…

A modern example of the use of mail, is this bracelet I made with bronze jump rings. This kind of pattern is called “Box Chain”.
