Chainmaille Jewelry - Wire Flourish and Trizantine Chain Maille Necklace
(Troy Township, Ohio, USA)
Wire Flourish Wire Necklace
Description: Jill once swore that she'd never make jewelry, but we're so glad she gave in and showed us this beautiful chainmaille necklace!
I am self-taught and I follow my heart. It leads me to very interesting places.
First, I learned how to make dream catchers. The next thing I began creating were fan pulls and other crafts I can add beads to.
That lead to learning how to work with wire. I vowed I wouldn't make jewelry - so many people seem to be doing it. I wanted to be different.
So, I have found myself making jewelry. I first made a couple necklaces using chain maille stitch.
Well, my daughter's bracelet is here in the gallery. I have made another bracelet for a bridesmaid and a necklace for myself. The other bridesmaid wants earrings. I'm working on them.
This place in the gallery has my necklace. I made the flourish to go with the dress I'm going to wear to my daughter's wedding.
The chain is trizantine weave. I used 18 gauge half-hard nickel silver wire for the flourish and s-clasps. The jump rings are 18 gauge 7/8".
