I'm not really one for chainmaille but recently I became obsessed with the chain on this necklace here:
I had to split the video into two parts as I floundered around all day trying to figure out how to get the damned video onto this damned blog dammit.
After poking around the Internet a little bit, I found out this is called a byzantine chain. There's lots of tutorials out there showing you how to make it but they're kind of super complicated. As always my brain went right to how I could cheat it and I realized what you need is a double jump ring chain that you can buy already assembled. So based on that, I came up with my ten-million-times-easier method for making Byzantine chain in my very first ever video. Now, I'm assuming we're all agreed that we don't see my horrifically bitten-down-over-a-lifetime nails or the random bits of dirt sticking to my fingers.
Also click on these to enlarge or you won't be able to see a thing. Blogger isn't letting me enlarge them cuz it's jealous of my natural beauty I think.
