Gallery – Chainmaille

The Byzantine (or ‘King’s Chain’) chainmaille pattern is one that I was taught how to produce in college. I enjoy making up the chains, it can be remarkably therapeutic, and experimenting with different colours, materials, and sizes and types of crystals can produce a very different feel to each finished piece.

The European 4 in 1 pattern has a greater amount of movement and fluidity, it can be used to make up pieces with a greater width and is also a lot lighter to wear.

I cut all of the jump rings used myself from silver and copper wire (I’m very much looking forward to having an opportunity to put one together in gold in the future) and I make the chains up using pliers.
