I made this very thin chain maille bracelet for myself using the Byzantine Weave in three colours - silver, brass and natural copper with Botswana Agate gemstone oval bead as the focal. Wires were slowly wound around mandrels and then each coil is cut into rings one by one. These rings are then carefully woven together to create the bracelet. Necklaces, earrings, anklets could also be made out of this weave.
The main purpose I made this bracelet is to test its durability when made with the artistic wire/designer craft wires. Been wearing it for for the past 2 weeks, 24 hours a day, doing household chores without taking it off, even when showering.
Still shiny and looks as good as new with the silver and brass coloured wires but the sheen has disappeared for the copper coloured section but nevertheless, I like the 'antique' look of the copper wire. Will wear it for another two weeks or so to see the outcome again.
