Doublemaille Accented Bracelet

Doublemaille! Well, some random doublemalle placements across a biased e4-1 cuff.







I wanted to put a toggle clasp on this one, but I guess I'm really not good at making those.

1mm Copper 4mm ID all the way across. Came out very tight on the doublemaille portions, next time I'd go for a little larger ID just to make it less painful to work with.

Really interesting texture that produces, I bet that would also look real cool in a repeating pattern.

I thought about a patterned piece after I finished that one. Probably need a higher AR since it gets really tough to work with. Marred quite a few rings trying to get acceptable closures on the accented layer.

I'd love to see a serpentine pattern if I could figure it out.

That is a very unique texture. How does it feel on the wrist?

So is this your Maille awareness bracelet example from the discussion a while back? If I remember correctly double maille was chosen as the weave.

Great Job

It feels great, you don't notice anything on the backside of the doublemaille. It's noticable in weight, but not in the realm of heavy.

I almost remember the Maille awareness topic, but that wasn't really the intent here, just something I felt like experimenting with.
