    Arja, it is amazing what a difference tumbling can make in the amount of shine a piece ends up with! Your chain maille pieces are gorgeous! :D

    they look great. I just learned this weave. I must be using the wrong size ring because mine it too airy,

    It’s amazing that copper, finally, looks and shines like gold! Jade, byzantine weave must be woven from quite small jumprings. I used 17g wire, ID of jumpring is 4.5mm and could be even smaller.
