Chained to Chain Maille

My newest jewellery obsession is chain maille.  I can’t seem to get enough! I started by learning the Celtic wedding knot, also known as Helm’s Chain, the next was Byzantine and Queen’s or box chain. I learned these from my boss Miriam in my first jewellery class.  The other’s I have picked up on my own from various sources either on-line or in books we have at the store. The most complex piece is the 70’s 12-2 which is based on the Japanese 12-2 flower pattern.  I call it 70’s because it reminds me of macrome 😉
