Jacob's DNA Ladder Finished!
In my last post, I shared about learning a new Chain Maille weave. Mostly about the problems I was having with it. I knew that it would only be a matter of time until I was able to do it well. At least that was the thought. I received some encouragement from Rebeca at Blue Budda (where I purchased the kit)
You can see from the above picture that I was able to get a good start fairly soon. I was beginning to see the little things to do that make the weave easier to do. Actually, the things I was NOT doing that would make it easier. This pattern, to me, seems to require some spacial ability. (I learned a long time ago that is not my strong suit) But I persevered and finally "saw" the way it should go together. After that, the weave seemed to come together for me and I started to wonder "What was your problem, Bev?"
So, here is the finished necklace. It is about 24 inches long, just a great length for this time of year.
I especially like the clasp that was provided and how the whole necklace finished.
I'm looking forward to making some variations.
How do you like the finished product?
