This bracelet was made from silver plated rings I got in a kit, BUT I didn't make the bracelet like the directions said. It was supposed to look more like a daisy chain. I made mine a bit fuller, from an example in a book.

Very nice, I am still trying to get Chain Maille down.  I have tried a half and full persian over and over with no success.

Thanks, everybody. I enjoyed making this, and thought it was pretty fast and easy, so I am encouraged to try more styles, different ring colors, etc.

Pretty...do you make your own rings? I don't know why but that idea kind of scares me, even though I have seen instructions and it doesn't look too hard to make your own.
