My mum asked me to make a simple silver chain for her holiday

I like it - and the spiral detailing on the clasp is a nice touch.

This is lovely!  I really enjoy when people come out with simple, beautiful work that speaks for itself.  I'm starting to dabble in chainmaille... how do you get them to stay in the spiral pattern?  Welding, hammering?  I'd love any tips you care to share.  Thank you and happy crafting!

Wow this looks like a lot of work.  The results are gorgeous though, I bet your mom will love this piece.

I was playing with this weave the other day but didn't get very far.  I was wondering if it all completely untwists (is that a word?) when you let one end go or if it holds some sort of shape once the chain is a certain length?

It's a very pretty necklace Smiley

Sorry for the ridiculously late reply but I've not been on for ages (as you can probably tell!)

Yeah I found it kept untwisting, but that once your wearing it it stays in place.  Hope you got it to work

Very nice. Simple is sometimes best! Cheesy
I guess I never really thought about a toggle clasp keeping the spiral twisted, but I see how it would work. Grin

Bet mom is ecstatic!

It only works when it is being worn, I've not found a way of keeping it twisted.

Thanks for your comment

It looks fantastic.

I did exactly the same thing.
