Unchained


Actually 'Unglued' would have been a more appropriate title. That's what I became trying to teach myself this chain maille design. It's the '4-in-1' design. Sounds easy. It wasn't. Sounds like a beginning design. It isn't. Not according to the Urban Maille website, which is where I should have gone before attempting to make this design.

I did eventually figure it out on my own, but I highly recommend visiting the Urban Maille site. I've purchase a few of their kits and they've been well worth the price.

I do like how this pair of earrings turned out. I like how the sparkle of the jet black Swarovski crystal and luminosity of the white pearl contrast with the stark elegance of the chain maille.
