Did I do it wrong? Rondo a la Byzantine

I'm pretty new to this, but tackled triple-point byzantine and dragonscale as my first two weaves. After a few pieces of those, I made a bracelet of Rondo a la Byzantine per instructions in Rebeca Mojica's book "Chained" using the suggested sizes of SWG 18 ga 9/32" & 3/16" rings in BA from The Ring Lord.

Wow...this thing was tight and kinda stiff putting on the 2nd row of Helms chain. It is flexible enough to be a bracelet, but doesn't move fluidly like anything else I've made though it looks great in my limited estimation.

Does anyone have any experience with this weave that can advise if I did something wrong? Maybe I should have chosen different rings...

Do you have a picture of the piece that you could post?

I have pics, but don't have a website, so do I have to upload them to the gallery, first?

Do a search for "picture hosting websites" and join any one you want. I use Photobucket. I'm not for or against it... it's just what I chose at the time. That way, you can share your pictures on forums like this one. Smile

Like Lorraine said, there are a lot of different photo-hosting websites out there. Just to name a few:

Photobucket
Flickr
Deviantart
Picturetrail
Pinterest

Photobucket is my choice.

I think it's the easiest to get pics up here.


I admire its purity. A survivor … unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.
