Chainmail Set

While chainmail is traditionally used as armor, it is currently being used in fashion and jewelry; I ended up making two chainmail ornaments- one that hung around the neck like a necklace, then wrapped around the waist like a belt, and a second that is worn like a halter top, clasping in the back but not behind the neck. I used roughly 1300 12AWG/14SWG 5/16” ID aluminum jump rings. I used a European 4 in 1 for both, but used a “back to work” chain for the necklace, and substituted those for a flower chain in the halter.
