Rose hips grows in chain mail jewelry


I designed a simple causal bright set using chain mail and coral beads.

The bracelet is full of beads hanging from the outside of the weave.

I found very decorative to embellish it with beads.

I  like to use the simple weave of chain mail in a pyramidal shape.

This time I chose to use red  coral beads matches with red leather for the pendant.

The earrings are smaller but in the same design.

Enjoy looking or buying them.

Tutorials or how to make jewelry


I learnt most of my techniques used in my work due to the dozen of great artists and craft man who teach both posting and selling their knowledges. I want to thank them again via my blog and to add myself posting on my blog some of my own tutorials.

In my work I used some techniques being attracted both by “warm” jewelry as embroidered, beaded and woven ones and “cold” jewelry as wrapped, coiled and woven wire ones.

I decided to start tacking about chain mail technique – the art /  craft of weaving the jumper rings.

As we all know form tales and history the armor was done by skilled craftsman weaving the jumper rings in simple or complex weaves. There are patters using the same size of the jumper rings but there are many intricate designs using 2 or more sizes of the jumper rings.

The jumper ring has 2 traits: the gauge – how thin or thick the wire is and the diameter of the jumper ring.

There are many weaves that look more beautiful using the small diameter jumper rings  – the byzantine weave – and there are weaves nicer using larger diameter jumper rings. Here you are a byzantine bracelet examples and a simple weave armor bracelet.

 

Chain mail flowers earrings or how to feel the roses scent


Hello,

Last evening I wanted to work some chain mail. Unfortunately my resources of silver plated jumper rings in a larger diameter – 7cm – was depleted. :D. I found some other kind of jumper rings, but thinner. As I was decided to work a chain mail jewelry, to design a new pattern I tried several issues. There is a petal chain mail technique  to get a nice flower as a small rose. As my jumper rings were thin I added several of them, increasing “the density” of the petals, so I got some nice plump buds, I linked with smaller but thicker jumper rings.

The earrings are simple linked design but I intend to create also a nice necklace for a set. I keep you posted 🙂

 

Crown crystal chainmail bracelet


20111216-091020.jpgByzantine chain mail made with brass jumper rings. Variation of the technique decorated with faceted purple and translucent crystals (8mm). There are bracelet, earrings and ring for the set. Bracelet 18 cm.

I call this versatile jewelry “smart causal”. it looks bright accessorizing a “deux pieces” but looks “cool over a jeans and a “col a rouler”.
