One of my first chainmaille necklaces made using sterling silver, and modelled by the beautiful *melodiemayhem :)

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

Awsome job, Zikes! I looks brilliant! :clap:

Must have been hard, eh? :D

Thanks! :D

This one wasn't too difficult, actually. I put it together fairly quickly in comparison to the other one :)

Ah, I see, but it turned out nicely. :D

It's so pretty and shiny... it makes me want to try and make something... but I wouldn't know where to start or how =\

Well, if I ever get off my lazy arse I intend to document the process and make some tutorials so everyone can see for themselves :D
