Finally Done!


I finally finished this necklace that I have been working on on-and-off for a few weeks. I constructed all of the links, made all the enamels and settings by hand, made all the jumprings and the clasp myself, and soldered every single ring shut. I'm really proud of it.

Pretty! I like your pseudo japanese chainmail look with the links you've soldered together in fours.

I've tried to make things like this in the past with little success... I had never found a food combination of chain link and enamel pieces. Yours looks good!

You SHOULD be proud!!this is wonderful!!

Thanks! It took a lot of fiddling and re-adjusting to get it right. It does hang nicely when worn, which was my main concern. I should take a photo of somebody wearing it.
