My first bit of Chain Maille

I have been wanting to have a go at this for ages - so here is my first attempt at chain maille.
I made a 'Shaggy Loop' bracelet with a silver plated toggle clasp and as I had beads left over, made a matching 'dangle' to hang on a necklace. I have put it temporarily onto a white gold chain, as I need to get a suitable silver one.
The colours of the seed beads haven't really come out in the photo - they are rather nice garnet lined topaz.

I am definately hooked & now fancy getting maybe some copper rings & trying another pattern! Oops, there goes more money!

they both look lovely, you must have a huge amount of patience and manual dexterity to manage all those fiddly beads and rings
