Out of my comfort zone!

So I decided to do something out of my comfort zone and ordered a starter pack for chaine mail. It was cheaper to buy the pack and get pliers, a little step by step book, container and rings than trying to work out the components and getting everything I needed.
So here I am on stage one of my learning process and have started with Byzantine weave. It’s quite “common”, by which I mean its not all that unusual but its very pretty and after struggling with the first complicated loop through the book is closed and I’m ploughing on adding more and more rings.
Never before has anything I have done been measured in inches, I don’t think. I’m a little under 4 at the moment.

Byzantine Weave

What do you think? I can’t wait to try it in silver!
