DescriptionA chainmaille bikini set. I've been looking at the ones at the renaissance fair for years, and wasn't willing to spend that much for one, so I made my own.
The band around the chest, and the halter strap are a chain version of B2. The cups are European 4 in 1, reducing every so many rings to form the fan pattern. A thicker chain made of linked mobius units on the outside of the cup for support, and 2 in 1 chains decorated with swarovski drops at the top of the cup for decoration. I put the clasp in the front just to avoid needing help to fasten it, and accented that with more 2 in 1 chains with crystal drops.
The bikini bottom is European 4 in 1, with 2 in 1 chain around the waist, and dangling crystal drops to match the clasp on the bikini top.
1/4", 16g anodized aluminum rings in water tones mix
6mm, 20g silver-plated brass rings for dangling chains
9x5mm briolette swarovski crystal drop for decoration on cups
10.5x7mm briolette swarovski crystal drop for decoration on clasps
1 silver bar clasp for top
2 silver lobster clasps for bottom
