I became interested in chain mail while doing a necklace restoration project for a friend of mine. In trying to find a replacement for the chain that over time had become damaged on the necklace, I realized that I would have to make the chain myself. The project it self is a permanent page on this blog.
Since then I have been weaving chain mail working with different size, shape and gauge metal rings. I love how the same pattern can look and feel so different depending on the type of ring that is used.
This is a cuff I just finished using the Euro 4 in 1 weave using 16g, stainless steel, square wire. I finished the bracelet with a sliding clasp so that it fits like a cuff.
