Hello everyone! I just wanted to pop over and share my first attempt at jewelry-making! I must admit that I am already hopelessly addicted Smiley

It's chain maille!! Yay!




I made this one for a friend's birthday the same night I made the first



This one is a Byzantine bracelet in pan pride colors



Trying out a new "pattern." It's probably out there somewhere (I'm sure I didn't come up with it) but it's the first one I made without looking at a photo to figure it out Smiley



All in all, I'd say it was a pretty productive day! Thanks for taking the time to look! Smiley

Thanks so much! It really is addicting Smiley I found these at my local A.C. Moore craft store. But there are loads of affordable retailers online that I've found. I think my favorite for price and selection, thus far, is theringlord. Check 'em out! They have loads of awesome stuff and a really great inspiration gallery!

Very nice byzantine link, always one of my favorites! I second buying rings from The Ring Lord, I've bought my colored aluminum from them myself. Enjoy your new addiction!
