Lunar Moth Chainmaille Bracelet  

Monday, October 12, 2015

I love this design from Blue Buddha Boutique. It's called Lunar Moth and it's basically a variation of the butterfly weave with different (and much larger) rings.

This bracelet is made with bright aluminum rings and it's very light to wear, I can hardly feel it on the wrist.

Abhainn Chainmaille Bracelet  

Saturday, September 19, 2015

Abhainn (in Irish means river) is the name of this weave. Very light on the wrist and the perfect opportunity to play with color.

Made in Bright Aluminum and Anodized Aluminum rings.

Chainmaille Pendant  

Friday, September 18, 2015

I made this pendant based on a 'thingie' shown in the Chain Maille group on Facebook. I kept adding rings to it until the pendant was formed. It is doubled up, so the second pic shows it by side, in a 3D form.

Minerva Chainmaille Bracelet  

Saturday, August 8, 2015

A last bracelet before I'm off on Monday on a holiday trip to Greece. The weave is called Minerva and it's a fun one to do. Quite chunky and rather big, but I like it.

Variation on Harvest Moon Chainmaille Bracelet  

Thursday, August 6, 2015

I wanted to make a quick bracelet today so I decided on Harvest Moon by Zili, since I had the rings for it. But once it was done, I felt it loses a bit its shape when on my wrist, so to stabilize it and give it some more fullness, I added small rings throughout. And it turned out like this.

Here are a few pics.

Mystique Chainmaille Bracelet  

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

I've started this chain maille bracelet about a month ago, but life happened, so I had to put it aside until now. As I'm going on holidays next week, I wanted to finish it by then, as it will travel with me, on my wrist.

The weave is called Mystique, it's a modified Euro 4 in 1. A bit tough to add the last set of copper rings, but it was fun nonetheless.

Here are a few pics I took today.

Monday, May 18, 2015

Learned a new wave: dragonsteps. Love it. Not so easy to start, but once you're a few rows in, it becomes very easy.

Bright aluminum rings. The bracelet is so light and thin, I don't even feel it on the wrist.

Dragonscale Chainmaille Bracelet  

Saturday, March 28, 2015

I've finally got the hang of the dragonscale chain maille weave. Took me a while to learn it, but now that I got going with it, I can't believe how easy it actually is.

Bracelet is in bronze and copper rings, all handcut with the jewelry saw one by one (*sigh I wish I had a Ringinator, alas maybe later in the year).

Here are a few pics of the finished piece. I might change the clasp though, as I'm not too happy with it.

First Work in 2015 - Hodo Chainmaille Bracelet  

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

I took a small break from making jewelry last year, but I am back now, and here is the first piece I made this year. Copper/bronze chainmaille bracelet based on a weave called Hodo.

I wanted something simple yet stylish and visually appealing, and the Japanese family of weaves fits pretty well this criteria. The creator of this weave, if I'm not mistaken, is Rebeca Mojica, the author of the popular book Chained, which I have.

I do like this bracelet, but next time I will use smaller sizes for the small connecting rings for a tighter look.
