I love long chains, and I love combining beads and chainmaille. I especially love the contrast of colors in this one.


aluminum jump rings, gold plated steel jump rings, 8/0 Toho seed beads, 12mm Swarovski rivoli, gold plated findings.

    Beautiful work! I love how the little seeds flair out on the sides creating the look of fringe. Such hard work that definitely paid off in a stunning piece. :)

    This is beautiful chainmaille work. My arthritic fingers salute you! The chain pattern with the green beads reminds of fiddleheads in the spring. Perfect with your fern printed shirt.

    Great piece!! I also admire anyone that can accomplish chainmaille work like you have. My hands hurt just thinking about it!

    Exquisite! The chainmaille is really wonderful and the green seed beads really add charm to it.

    I agree with what everyone else has said. I have tried chain maille on a pair of earrings. One earring turned out fine but the second was held together bracelet extra jump rings on the backs but still don’t look alike. I keep them around to remind me of my failures.

    Wow! I have to agree with all of the above. This is a fabulous necklace. Wish I could do chain maille but a carpal tunnel problem shoots that down.

    Great necklace. I also love the look of the Tohos at the edges. Very nice.
