Colorful Chainmaille Lapis Micromaille Bracelet Hundreds of tiny, tiny rings go into the process of micromaille, truly a labor of love. This dramatic cuff style bracelet is 1 inch wide and the mesh like weave feels silky smooth on the wrist. The gorgeous lapis color is punctuated by stripes of silver. The rings are made with anodized aluminum a very lightweight but strong metal.
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 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.
Chainmaille Weave: European 4 in 1. Four rings added to one. This is the weave seen in armor from medieval days.
Material Anodized Aluminum: A great choice since it is lightweight but very strong Best of all it enables color to be brought into the world of chainmaille. The choice of color combinations and patterns is endless!
Rings: These rings are small and lightweight, but the weave is very dense, making it very difficult for rings to pull apart.
