Featured piece 3-14-10

Today's featured piece is something that is quickly becoming a new jewelry trend: chainmaille. I started playing with the idea of chainmailling many years ago. I am a Renaissance festival nerd and attend several a year all dressed in garb. I looked at how thw chainmaille armor was constructed and wondered if I could do that as well. This bracelet is the fruits of that labor. I made a brass wire chainmailled diamond shape and decided to simply add a length of chain to either side creating this stunning bracelet. $30
