Three Weights of Chainmaille in Byzantine Weave

Yesterday, I listed three chainmaille bracelets on Etsy.  They are all made with the Byzantine pattern, but in different wire gauge.  I did a tiny sterling one in 20 ga, a medium sterling and gold filled in 18 ga, and a heavy sterling in 16 ga.  Those of you who are chainmaillers know that the larger the number, the smaller the gauge of wire used to make the rings.  I thought you might like to take a look.  First the three in comparison.  Then a photo of each.  Click on through to Etsy to see bigger photos.  And to purchase, of course.  All prices reflect the lower sterling rates now available.

Here’s the comparison photo:

The first is the tiny bracelet:

Next is the medium two-tone:

And finally, the heavy 26 ga sterling bracelet:
