Chain Maille - My Latest Passion!

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!
