Another idea just hit me. What if you used two chains? With the threads between them instead of just on the edge of one? Then it can be a belt, or again a strap for something.

OR - what if you used quite large/open chain, and did the braiding along BOTH sides. that could be cool!

SO many possibilities with this one!

~CD~

I was thinking about doing that! After vampedangel14 mentioned that. Braiding on both sides would be awesome. I think I'm going to try to make a waist belt doing that, to wear with a tunic or loose shirts... SOO MANY IDEAS! It's exciting. haha

I love it when people make their own versions of high end designer jewelry, because more often than not, it comes out way nicer. Like yours. Great job! I'll probably be making one of these myself Smiley
