An Experimental Chain Maille and Rubber Ring

By on Wednesday, December 09, 2009 6 Comments

Carol is really keen on chain maille ever since she was introduced to this branch of jewelry making. Like any craftswoman, she is improving on her craft all the time. I was delighted when she brought in her latest experiment to a workshop to show me.  My photography does not do it justice - the chain maille ring looks really good on her finger.




She had used the European weave to put together this neat ring using copper and rubber rings. The color combination is striking. The rubber rings makes the ring much easier to put on and take off. But Carol says  she needs to get smaller rubber rings so all the rings will sit better particularly at the base. Onwards, Carol to the next experiment!!

  2. Carol's ring is great, I particularly like the colors...I'm a fan of chain maille, not something I do much as my fingers don't seem to work that well in such small spaces but I do admire those who can!!!

    Cheers

  5. Yes, new chainmaillers want to make rings. Me too.
    I like the use of rubber rings as my knuckles require flexibility. Nice job!
