Wearin' O'The Green

But did they have green chain maille in mind? Doubtful.
The maille is byzantine weave, made from 20 gauge, 1/8" ID green anodized aluminum rings, and the beadwork is 15/0 seed beads. The whole thing came from the Jan/Feb issue of Beadwork magazine, but I modified the hell out of it. Enjoy.

It's been a long time since I posted anything here. Here are some goodies I've done lately:

For a secret beader exchange on one of the bead forums where I post. I made the clasp too! Green glass beads all around. The drops are green glass, and the body of the necklace is green triangle beads.

The Epic beaded collar. Too bad the picture isn't better. It's purple, red, green, gold and turquoise. Sounds scary, but they all came together very nicely.

I did this for a benefit auction in 2006. Too bad the people who I donated it to didn't tell me if it sold. They didn't thank me either. Oh well.

Stay tuned! There are more chain maille goodies to take pictures of, and some deeevine beadwork to come!
