Daisy Chain


About this design:

Recently, I've been working on techniques that I haven't done in years. One of the first things I learned on my jewelry journey was how to weave a daisy chain. I started wondering what a daisy chain would look like with my usual chainmaille. This necklace is the result of that question.

Components:

Weave Got Maille jump rings for the Twist of Fate and Byzantine chainmaille weaves, 18 & 20 gauge Artistic Wire, various Czech glass beads, 6/0 seed beads and my handmade clasp.

    Kye, I also love the blend of techniques in this piece. The flowers are so cool in this design, and I like your color placement of them–perfect balance. I usually ‘fiddle’ way to long, moving the colors to & fro, to get that type of equal visual weight. Horse eye beads are a favorite, and I like how you added the brown ones in the line up too. Lovely work! :)

    I especially like the way you use the larger size of seed beads for your daisy chain. I wonder if the daisy chain could be worked in some other kinds of beads besides seed beads. I like your necklace!
