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:
