New Chain Maille
As most of you know, I love to make Chain Maille jewelry. Also, most people seem to love my Chain Maille jewelry. However, it is expensive to make and therefore to purchase.
To help with this "dilemma" I've decided to make some Chain Maille pendants that require fewer expensive silver rings or use some colored rings and therefore offer jewelry that is more affordable.
Here is my first attempt. I saw a picture that I liked and this is the results.
Not too good. The smaller rings are too big and the 3 large rings are not big enough.
The next step was to look through my stash of rings and I found some larger red rings that had come as a sample with an order. (Most freebies are not worth anything - but these samples finally found a home.) Then I found some smaller, small rings.
It was somewhat of a challenge to make the pendant similar to the picture but I was progressing. The rings are now in proportion and I came up with the name "Trinity"
Here is a close up of the results.
I have some more ideas that I'm working on for new pendants and hope to show some more next week.
How do you like this direction? Starting with the Star pendant last week and the Trinity pendant this week?
I really don't like to be stuck in a rut so I'll still be doing other types of jewelry but I really want your opinions. So, here is your chance: Bev, this is what I think.
