Having recently found a ton of colored jump rings on clearance at my local Michael's, it seemed like a good time to try a few chainmaille weaves that I haven't tried before.  I'm pretty pleased with the way everything turned out, but unfortunately I'm out of rainbow jump rings!  ><  Here are my creations:

Japanese weave style pendant.  Quick and easy, but I like the way it turned out.

Rainbow "wave" necklace.  This was the last piece I made, mostly to use up the remaining colored jump rings but I think it may be my favorite of the group.

Rainbow celtic flowers bracelet.  I <3 Helm!

Rainbow pathway bracelet.  This one took for-ev-er.

Rainbow dangle earrings with crystals.  These were supposed to be something else, and ended up as an unholy combo of Euro 4 in 1 (the knots) and Japanese 2 in 2 (the connectors).  Still, I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

Colorful Beadmaille earrings.  Simple but cute!

Thanks so much for looking!

These are very nice.  Must have taken an incredible amount of patience.
