Just over the weekend I discovered chainmaille and love the possibilities.  My first project is similar to your earrings but as a bracelet.  Very easy but I'm not a fan of the aluminum rings that I used.  They aren't very nice ones and don't join well.  There are gaps because of the way they were cut.  Will definitely be getting better rings and doing some more weaves.  I also love rainbows so really, really like your pieces.  Here's my first try at chainmaille.

Thanks everyone!

@heyitzme37: Isn't chainmail great? I like your bracelet! I've found that the best place to get rings are some of the more reputable online stores. I was at a craft store today and decided to look at the small selection of rings they had and they just looked awful. They were done with a pinch cutter and there were scratches all over the colored rings.
Good luck with your future chainmailing!

It's all so beautiful.  I love how colorful it all is.  Great job for your first try.  I gave up after my cat spilled my rings about 100 times.
