In this design I used the chain from the "Celtic Teardrop Necklace" (because I love it) and made a cross pendant after some time spent messing on my jig. I also glued a black seed bead to the center as a bit of extra decoration.
This is my latest foray into chainmaille. It's an easy design that looks great in the end. This one uses big rings for the beads and small rings for the connectors, which was a nice switch from the one-ring designs I've been doing. Overall, I really like the way this turned out.
The first is definitely my favorite from this whole bunch. The knots make it fun and dressy at the same time, making it perfect with almost any kind of outfit, which, as I've mentioned before, is a big bonus for me when it comes to jewelry. The second turned out a little longer than I anticipated but it goes really well with high-necked shirts that way.
I think this design is extremely cute and it was something fast and easy for me to work on when I had about fifteen minutes of free time. I implemented the spiral ear studs again because I think they look fabulous. i made my own headpins with the little loop design on the bottom instead of just plain, store-bought headpins because I think it adds a little something extra.
I'm becoming a huge fan of chainmail jewelry and this is one of the first designs I've ever tried in the jump ring realm. It still looks as great as it did the first time I attempted it (albeit a bit neater.)
This is my absolute FAVORITE. The design is a variation of the European byzantine chainmail and it has a more feminine and dainty look than the original byzantine pattern. I haven't taken it off since I made it and I haven't found an outfit that it doesn't match thus far. I'm working on a matching necklace right now and I think they'll look stunning together.
