Some New Chainmaille Bracelets

I've finally got some rings cut with my Koil Kutter and have been playing with a couple of new chainmaile weaves.

Firstly came one inspired from a picture on Maille Artisans International that I managed to figure out without a tutorial! It makes quite a chunky bracelet that I decided to make up in black

Then I went onto a Persian variant, Persiantine, completed in dark blue. This has made a slightly more delicate bracelet

And lastly, my favourite (which I am wearing whilst I type!!), Forars Kaede. Similar to the popular Jens Pind, but having made this up into a bracelet I think I prefer this weave of the two

So I have ordered some more wire to practise with ...... you know how it is !!




  1. Ha June! Yet another expensive hobby. Lovely work - you must have the patience of a saint.

  2. Thanks Shelley! Mind you, I'm sure I don't need as much patience as you do for your beautiful rings!!

  3. Forars Kaede is just gorgeous, its the weave i've set my sights on learning next (getting a bit ahead of myself maybe seeing as i can only do byzantine, turkish round and shaggy loops XD)the persiantine looks very interesting too!
    All lovely though June!
