The flowing "Stepping Stone" pattern chain mail pendant in silver and rainbow colored rings hangs from a sterling silver small link necklace.

I created this handmade pendant using a mix of jump rings in both silver and rainbow colors. The rainbow cascades down and around the two center rings much like the flow of a river. Eleven different colored rings bring a full, vibrant color wheel to the piece. Starting at the top with red, orange, copper, yellow, green, teal, blue, purple (violet), raspberry, fuchsia and pale cotton candy pink.




It's strung on a 18" sterling silver plated small link chain which is finished with a lobster claw clasp. This is a labor-intensive chain mail pattern but having made it in all silver first (I made one for OWS round 66) it just called out for a rainbow version as well. Grin I'm still pretty new to chain mail. This is the second pattern I've learned so far.

As always, thoughts welcome!

This is amazing!  I would love to wear this.  I'd totally but this if I came across it for sale.  Keep learning chain mail; you seem to be good at it!

I love this! I've always admired chainmaille, and this piece is very unique. I'm totally "pinning" it!

I love it! I don't wear necklaces much, but I love the colours and the pattern! Perhaps I could convince my husband to make one for me... Too bad he only works in steel and copper and makes his own rings...
