Lately, I've been learning various chainmaille weaves.  I've been using anodized aluminum and rubber because I like the colors and prices.  Anyway, pictures:

Helm:





Half Persian:





Full Persian: (Harry Potter house colors, you say?  Why, I hadn't even noticed.)





European 4-in-1:



King's Scale:





Dragon's Tail:





Celtic Star:





Japanese 6-in-1: (and 12-in-2 variation)





Japanese Ball:




Foxtail:




Helm Flower:




This is a pendant I discovered when I messed up trying to make a Japanese Flower, and the metal rings I had were too big.  So I made the outer ring a Helm chain, and it turned into this.  I'm really fond of it.

Misc.



These aren't traditional chainmaille weaves.  I got them from Susan Thomas' book Link It!

Can I toss in the terms chain mail and chain maille, so it turns up under various searches?

Absolutely amazing! I love the use of metal and rubber, so freakin' unique!! Those weaves seem so time consuming, and complicated. Great job!!

YAY! I made my first chainmaille today, a helm weave charm bracelet for my mom's birthday.  Mine is silver and brass, so it's pretty but not nearly as colourful as yours.  I love the blue and white helm and king's scale.  Also, the watches are killer and this post made me want to try japanese 6 in one.

These are amazing! I can't even fathom how long it must take to make something that detailed.
The rubber is really neat. I've never seen that before, but then again I don't know much about chainmaille Smiley

Stalking your Etsy and WISTING like mad.  You're amazing, and you've got a great eye for color.

Wow these are fantastic!  My favorite is the Japanese Ball and the miscellaneous links at the end.
