For The Love of Beads BlogThe adventures of Suzanne, Nibbler, and friends in the world of beads and jewelry making crafts

Hi again!

Playing around with chainmaille is so much fun and over the past few months I have made quite a few different pieces of jewelry for myself, friends and family. This is one of the first bracelets I made but its still one of my favourites.

The weave is called Elfweave (there are some great tutorials over at mailleartisans.org/weaves) and I got the charms at a local bead store. I still need to find a matching clasp but, thanks to the helpful people on the Ring Lord boards, I know where to get it now!

I love the colour of these rings, its called ‘gunmetal’ and just looks fantastic. This is a pretty simple weave once you get the hang of it and looks slightly different depending on the AR (aspect ratio) of the rings you choose. There are also a couple cool variations on this weave if you play around.  Some ideas include adding some beads to the pattern in order to spice it up a little or using different coloured rings.

Here is an elfweave bracelet made with two different colours of annonized alluminum, you can see how it is a little tighter and stiffer than the other one.

Hope you like them! As always, there will be more to come!

Thanks for dropping by!
