Chain Maille Gallery

I did a bunch of chain maille some years ago, then got involved with other jewelry techniques (viking knit, bead embroidery, etc.).  But recently I've gotten back into maille, so here are some photos, past and present.  Enjoy!

I've always been fascinated by the weave Celtic Visions, so I finally got out my rings and pliers and had myself a really good time!

 

It's not been until lately that I have been working with anything other than sterling or argentium. These two bracelets are made from enameled copper, which gives them wonderful colors. The bracelet on the left is made with the Box weave, while the one on the right uses Byzantine weave.

 

This one was fun! I made double Byzantine segments then connected them with a large ring. Sterling silver.

A different kind of look for chain maille -- all "furry", LOL. These are really a lot of fun to wear!

I called these earrings "Fandango". It's a melange of weaves, although mostly euro 4 in 1. Done up in sterling silver! This is one more that I need to replicate in colored wire -- maybe...anodized titanium?

 

Another sterling bracelet that I sold that I wish I had kept! This is done in in a weave called "Turkish Roundmaille" which is exceedingly beautiful. Oh well, guess I just need to make another!

 

Bracelet made using the Helm weave, also known as the Parallel weave. I call this particular bracelet "Celtic Kisses" because the golden jump rings make "x"s and the captive rings make "O"s (i.e., hugs and kisses).

 

This is a bracelet made in the chain maille weave called "Dragonscale". It was really heavy, and really gorgeous. I made it in sterling silver, but alas, sold it a few years back. Wish I still had it!
