Wrapped in chainmaille

There are so many weaves in chainmaille that make beautiful jewelry pieces. Precisely, many weaves are actually invented to be decorative, so it’s kinda easy to make gorgeus jewelry of them.

I suppose that is why I am the most inspired by classic functional chainmaille mesh, like this one. This is the most common chainmaille weave, known as Euro 4-1. This is what you will see in museums, pictures in history books or in history movies. A classic armor weave for hauberks, coifs or gauntlets. Making a jewelry piece out of it really excites me.

You wouldn’t believe it, but chainmaille mesh is like silk. It’s gentle on your skin, it flows around your neck and whrists, it moves with you like the finest fabric. Pay attention to drapes and wrinkles of this necklace. So beautiful, isn’t it?

I’ll leave you to the pictures.
