DescriptionMy first chainmaille project!
Metal Used: coloured brass, in four colours - gold, antique copper, silver, and black.
Weaves used: 2-1 chain, box chain.
For the 2-1 chain: ID = 3.6 mm, Wire = 1.2 mm, AR = 3.0
For the box chain: ID = 5.6 mm, Wire = 1.2 mm, AR = 4.7
The knot was made from sections of Box Chain which were tied in a square knot, and then the ends joined together and additional sections of Box Chain added to them.
The earrings are 2-2-2 chain, plus a mobius/rosette unit; sorry I can't remember the exact ring sizes for this.
Coins were placed next to the jewellery to give an idea of scale.
