Maille Butterfly
« on: March 14, 2015, 07:50:20 PM »

Here is a maille butterfly I did a few years ago. The metal is anodized niobium (by far my favorite material for maille.. hypoallergenic, strong enough for jewelry, and easy to work with).

Awesome!
So nice to see someone finally posting in this forum section!

The only weave I have ever really done is Japanese four in one.

You totally rocked out the Byzantine weave here!  The Butterfly is a cool concept!   :icon_sunny:

Thanks Amanda!  The Byzantine is definitely my favorite weave for doing jewelry and chains. Time consuming when you're working with 7/64" ID 20 gauge rings, but worth it. :-)

Sure! It might take me a week or three, but I'll get one up there. :-)
