Trinity box? I've never heard of that weave! Trinity is a really cool weave though :)
Too bad the photo's a bit blurry, I'd love to see good closeup.
And I just love sterling silver.

Ah actually the weave is plain ol' box, I just threw in that "trinity" bit because of the three dangly things :ninja:

This is beautiful as well, but not as stunning as the previous one... I think that this necklace would benifit from having a smaller maille. It would suit it better as it looks very big... But very good! I just prefer the other one...

Cute modell by the way...

I much prefer the other design as well :nod:

This one was more of a simple quickie, as I'd gotten another order of silver in just before the shoot and wanted to have a second necklace to show people :D

I'm going to have to buck the trend, I'm afraid, Zikes. Both your work and the decolletage it graces are beauties, of course, but I have to say I think the silver is too shiny. It looks too new, too much like something you'd find in a regular jewelry store, too much like a link chain and not enough like chain maille for my tastes. It needs some low lights, I think, some kind of tarnishing or ageing.

Needless to say, it is more than likely that I am just talking out of my ass here. Still and all, like Ace Ventura I persevere. :D

But I like the shininess ;p

Give me more shine! More I say! :shakefist:

I actually didn't have a choice there, they only carried two types of silver: shiny and just as shiny :giggle:

I do appreciate the remark that it seems like the pro stuff you'd find in a jewelry store, though :D

The silver really works well with the weaves you've chosen. The links catch and reflect the light beautifully!

I'd like to see you tackle something like Arawyn's head piece from the Return of the King. Realizing that you wouldn't have the solid pieces, I still thinks it's something you would be great at.
