I broke down and ordered some professionally cut links to make more chainmaille items. It is definitely worth the extra cost. It give a nice, clean edge finish. Most of the cuts almost disappear when closed.
The pictures above are of a necklace and bracelet done in the Jens Pind weave. I've tried to find out exactly where the name came from, but no one seems to know for sure. It makes a very nice chain when done correctly. It has a continuous flow to it that is easy to wear.
I made the design up in both copper and brass. Yes, they will tarnish, but so does silver. My hubby can't wear any metal with out tarnishing it but I found a quick (seconds) dip in Tarn-X brings the shine right back.
I won't be doing anything else new in chainmail this week. I forgot my tools at the market! It's too far away just to run get them, so there they stay. That's okay. I have a million other projects that I could be doing instead. Now let me see.....
