Smile I ran across a site and it has jewelry
called egyptian Chainmaille at this artist site. http://www.futuristicallyarchaic.com/chainmaille1.html

Has anyone ever heard of egyptain chainmaille and where can i find some tutorials on it? It's beautiful work and probably takes quit a bit of time to do.

Any help would be appreciated.

The description says it's interwoven spirals of wire...

Hi Thanks for all the replys. The lady who teaches this says it's more like knitting spirals together. She also gave me a bit of history on it and claims it is older than the chainemail we do hmmm,could be. Think i'll stick to jumprings for awhile hahaha.

You know, it sounds like a chain link fence.

Some may be, but a lot of what I see looks like Half-Persian. If my information is correct, there's nothing old about the so called "persian" weaves at all.

If this really is the "spiral" stuff you are talking about I think I've seen it somewhere before.

This sounds to me just like a denser form of the mesh stuff in front of fire places to protect from stray sparks or something.

It does look like half persian and I know for a fact (I've been involved in Egyptology for years) that anicent Eygptians did not have chain maille, the only armour they had was leather and scale maille (large pieces, leaf shaped) made of bronze and bronze helmets. There is no edvidence whatsoever of chain maille.

After having another look the pictures on that website appear to be compuer generated and not actual photographs. Also the historical info is wrong and the mythological info is totally made up. Very dubious site. Confused

I was looking at the pictures zoomed up and it does look like interlocking springs. Just save it to your computer and zoom up on the picture.

you can find instructions for this chain in "lark books" "making wire jewelry".

can't give you the author, cause i gave the book to my sister..

but, it's not irene petersons' lark books.. 'great wire jewelry' or 'great silver wire jewelry'. a search of the lark website would turn it up.

lark actually gave me this book for free, cause i bought in person from their warehouse in asheville, NC.. bought 2, and got that third as a cosmetic second for free. Smile

Is this the book to which you are referring?

Making Wire Jewelry: 60 Easy Projects in Silver, Copper & Brass
Helen Clegg and Mary Larom
Sterling Publishing


I ask because I also found these ones on the Lark website:

Making Metal Jewelry: Projects, Techniques, Inspiration
Joanna Gollberg
Lark


Making Bead & Wire Jewelry: Simple Techniques, Stunning Designs
Dawn Cusick
Lark


I'd love to learn how to do that weave, and I'd prefer to buy the correct book! Thanks.

appearantly i need to look at stuff before i go making silly statements. my 28.8kbps dialup connection deters me from actually following links posted most of the time.

there -is- a chain that is a linkage of these spiral units called an egyptian chain.

this is a new weave to me, but i'm working on figuring it out now.

you can see the ring interactions on the top of the silver example.
