No, I dont sell it. Even if it has a big market, people really wanna buy such stoff! But I have this deep, weird relationship Wink Cheesy whit all my items, so i just made stuff for myself or as gifts for my family and friends.

Yes, it really looks complicated, doesnt it? He-he, that is one of the reasons I like Kings Chain so much, it seems to be hard to make. But it inst!!!! Once you get the grip of the technique, its very simple to made. And addictive, it is allmost like meditation to work with it.

 It is much more work about wind up the wire on a stick and cut into jumrings. Not comlicated to do, but it is a tiresome doing. Eck.

Hawkwolf. Byzantine is the most beautiful pattern of all those classic ancient chainworks, in my opinion... Smiley

Ive seen your works by the way: absolutely stunning!!!! Shocked Smiley Just love the way you compose your chains and pearls into those supreme creations. *admire*
