I recently took a class for Chain Maille and learned the byzantine design, at first I thought there is no way this is for me! I was tense and feeling like I was all thumbs and dropping more jumprings than I placed. I am so happy I perservered, came home after the class, lost sleep to complete my first bracelet. In total it took me 3 hours!!
Since the class I am getting a tad quicker and daring new ideas with this weave and chain maille in general. There is a lot involved, learning guage size, diameter and aspect ratio. It is a lot to take in and I am busy reading and trying projects. Attached are some creations!
