New Chain Maille Pendant
This is a result of, I don't know. Funniest thing, if someone asked me how I made it or if I could make another one, I don't think I could.
I try lots of little samples of different Chain Maille weaves. Most often, I finish off a bracelet from the sample. In other words, I get it and now know what I did and how to do it again.
This little piece has been in my box of rings for awhile. I pick it up and put it down again. I really don't remember what I was trying to do.
Well, the other day after I finished a Parallel Rose pendant which involves making Parallel Chain - straight - and then making it into a circle, I picked it up again.
I looked again at this odd sample in my box and played with it. Suddenly, turning it into a circle I came up with something that looked nice. (See picture) In order to keep it in a circle, I added a few rings and one to be able to attach it to a chain. I'm certain, it will take me a long while to make another one, if asked.
I was surprised with and like the results. Now I need to find something to hang it on.
Have any of you made something in this manner?
