Pretty, you could make a barret out of the rectangle piece.

Wooow! That looks great! Did you use a tute or just come up with all this on your own? I'm sure I've been under a rock or something but I haven't seen anything like this and I just love it!!! Kudos

Thanks. 

I'd been wanting to try chainmail for a while. This is what I used to make the byzantine.

I've just been playing with different links between them.  (There's another post a while back where I used some swarovski crystals)

Nice!  I like the way you used larger rings to set each unit apart.  I think the byzantine weave looks better that way than with one unit right after another.  The Olivia byzantine is a good variation too.  These are really pretty!

I just did my first chain maille project, and felt addicted too!  I absolutely love your variations.  I did a gold Byzantine necklace to hold a single giant "diamond" (to be the Volturi Necklace from the Twilight Series) for a swap, and I can't wait to start some more.  Is there a specific set of patterns or a book that you've been using that you like?

@mynameis_jinx - Yeah, I like The interest the larger rings give it too, although I'm working on a piece with some really heavy gauge rings that looks great as a continuous byzantine.  It will be an anklet/man's bracelet.

@ jennieingram - Pretty much everything I've been playing with came from the site I linked earlier.  http://mailleartisans.org/weaves/

Thanks again for all the kind comments!
