Some people find chain maille jewelry underwhelming especially those who love color in their jewelry designs.  One way to beef up the color element is to use colored metal rings. The other way is to introduce beads.

The project is from her book Beadmaille: Jewelry with Bead Weaving and Metal Rings (Lark Jewelry Books).
