New Chainmaille Necklace
« on: January 14, 2010, 09:21:35 PM »
I'm going to just copy and paste my description from my blog, cuz I'm feeling lazy  :P

Yay, I finally listed some new jewelry in my shop. Just one necklace for now, but I'm going to be taking pics and trying to get up the rest soon. Here's my Spiral Crystal Drop Chainmaille Necklace.
Long name right? But I'm trying to get all the relevant search words in the title since most search engines use the first 60 characters for relevant searches.
I found this pretty focal piece in a little bead store in Riverside. I have one more, but I think I'm going to do something different with the other, so this will be the only necklace like this.
The chain is made up of the Japanese 2-2 weave. There are three spiral chains dangling from the main chain and the center spiral has a mobius flower in the center.
A pretty necklace and I'm very pleased with how it turned out, I've had this idea in my head for months now and it's awesome to see how it turned out.

I am wanting to try new stuff already, lol. I love that spiral weave. I have a hard time following the tuts on TRL site, I think it is. Made another Byz bracelet with bloodwood beads this time, will post pics later.

O.k. The 2-2 is done with 18G 5/32' bright aluminum, the spirals are 18G 3/16" bright aluminum and the mobius is 16G 3/8" bright aluminum. I'm not sure what the pendant is made out of, it was the last in this little bead shop and the lady couldn't remember.
