This Classic Byzantine Chainmaille Sterling Silver Bracelet is the most often recognized chainmaille weave. It is intricate in appearance, as well as very flexible on the wrist. It makes a charming gift especially when accented with a personalized charm such as and initial or birthstone.
Process: Each of my chainmaille pieces is made by hand. When I began making chainmaille I used mostly sterling silver and I enlisted my husband to use my jumpringer system to cut the rings. Now, in addition to sterling silver, I use many more types of materials and many excellent vendors are available to purchase rings. In each case, two pair of pliers are used, one holds the chain, the other grabs an open jump rings and adds it to the last.
