The other day I was going through my supplies and came across a whole bunch of jumprings I forgot I had. I don't really work with this color anymore so it just sat in a drawer.
I thought I'd try my hand in making a piece of chainmaille jewelry and made a bracelet. I thought about adding it to the shop but I'm gonna keep it for myself. It took a few hours to make and my hands were a little achy. My friend Judy does chainmaille jewelry and her shop is JSW Metalworks. She must have the strongest hands in the world.
I was thinking about doing more of these but using antique brass finish rings instead and somehow put my spin on it. What do you think? I've been wanting to work in another type of jewelry style, I don't know how much I will do but it's something new and I think I'm gonna explore this a little more.
I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. I always have a hard time with bracelets and getting the lengths right. Should I try to make some for men? Hmmm....
