And here is the same bracelet laid out:
The chain maille in this bracelet is called Full Persian Chain Maille.
The next pattern that I tried was in silver and is called Box Chain Maille:
The art bead in this one is by Marj Bates, a bead artist from Massachusetts.
Finally, I did a necklace with twisted wire gold jump rings in the Byzantine chain maille pattern.
I finished the necklace with a lobster clasp. After making this necklace, my left wrist was sore for two days, but I don't care because I really enjoyed wearing this one! On Friday, January 30, 2009, I spoke at the New London Rotary Club about my manufacturing classification. I actually qualify for this classification three times: once for Labsphere, Inc., once for Tarnhelm Supply Co. Inc., and lastly, once for Need for Beads, Inc. My presentation was well received. I had a blast talking about all the things that we manufacture in these companies.
Next, I'm getting quotes on costs for different sizes of copper wire. I expect that I'll have a piece done in copper soon.
