A gaggle of chainmaille bracelets. These chains are made from anodized aluminum in several different colours. Aluminum is such a light weight metal that you barely notice you are wearing it. I love that I can get so many different colours of this metal. They look great in combined colours as well.
This displays a necklace and a bracelet I made using some blue lampwork beads that I made. The necklace is a chain I made using bright aluminum and some heart shaped findings. I also strung some small glass beads to add a bit of colour. The bracelet has two of my glass beads strung with some silver plated spacers and smaller glass beads.
3 bronze chainmaille bracelets. I love working with bronze. It is a strong metal and produces a very strong chain so that soldering is not necessary. Bronze goes very well with stainless steel as demonstrated in the centre chain. The larger linked chains are wonderful as a man's chain.
