My first attempt at chainmaille! Captive Inverted Round chain for my husband for v-day.. A necklace that I think is heavy and manly enough that my hubby will like it even though he doesn't *do* jewelry. Smiley

Blurry I know:

For scale:

Very nice! I always love chainmaille, and that looks great for a first try. I think it is manly enough too! (Though that's not to say I wouldn't wear it either! I still would Cheesy )

I like it! Great job! I too think it's quite "manly" though I would wear it.

i like it!

maybe i'll try something like that for my man... he used to wear a chain, but when i accidentally mentioned that i was very mildly uncomfortable with the fact it was given to him by his ex, he chucked it out *shakes head* i got him a couple beaded necklaces for christmas, but i don't think he likes them... /babble

That's so nice. Totally manly Smiley I love chainmaille, but don't have what it takes to make it. I made a bracelet once, and nearly tore my hair out... all those little rings! So I really admire people who can do it. Good job!

Cool!

Very nice and chunky CIR....it's definitely manly, but I'm sure there are quite a few women who would enjoy that too.

Great work!
