No. 17 Chain Maille

June 4, 2008 at 3:34 pm 3 comments

I’m intrigued by chain maille. I love the beautiful shapes you can create just by linking rings together. At times, trying to follow a chain maille pattern can be like solving a brain teaser. These earrings use 6 mm and 4 mm rings. The pendants are, again, tagua nut beads. For more chain maille ideas check out the web site of the Maille Artisans International League

The Resolution

Here is my project for the year: I want to make 99 different pairs of earrings over the course of the next 12 months. That averages about 2 pairs a week. We’ll see how I fare with this resolution.
