These are my favorite pair of earrings. I wear them almost everyday. They're on surgical steel french hooks. I made them out of bright aluminum jump rings. I connected byzantine links to get the pattern. I played around with the weave to get the design. Mind you I'm not claiming to have come up with the design, I'm sure someone else before me already has. Chainmaille is pretty old. Cheesy Thanks for looking & ENJOY!

Gorgeous! I am very envious of chainmaille skills. I'd buckle down and learn, but I have my hands full with my other metal techniques!

Super, super job!
