Rondo à la Byzantine

I'm still on a chain maille kick and, this time, I went for a hefty necklace.

This necklace combines helm and byzantine and makes a wonderful statement necklace.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but this version uses brass and copper rings.

The difference is subtle, but I love the earthy look.

It is a bit weighty, due to the metal rings.  An aluminum version would be lighter and look amazing.

The pattern is in Rebeca Mojica's book, Chained.


  1. Hi Tanya,
    That is a beautiful necklace! I do not know how you do it without getting cross eyed.

  2. Beautiful Tanya!! I love the color. I think I can see the copper but they two metals really have created a wonderful new color!!

  3. This is just gorgeous - love the 2 colors together!

  4. The subtly helps strengthen an already powerful and beautiful necklace. Gorgeous, Tanya!

  5. A beautiful piece! Glad you are still playing with chain maille..it does look like subtle shifts in color...like that!

  6. that is beautiful. I love the mix of weaves you've used

  7. I love your chainmalle work! this has depth and history to it and feels like it could tell a story. LOVE it

  8. Its gorgeous, Tanya. I love the choice of copper and brass, it gives the chain maille a very appealing antique richness.
