The Project

The project (for a client): create a 60" necklace in several chain mail weaves in metallic colors with a patchwork effect.

The calculations: balance of colors and weaves when the necklace is doubled or tripled. Rather fun working with felt-tips for design!

The choices:
*weaves that were roughly comparable in volume - chaos, orbital, byzantine;

*metallic colors - silver, gold, bronze, in various combinations;

*patchwork - using different colors for different weaves in different lengths.

The necklace: very exciting!

Doubled and tripled:

The clasp is a big ring, so one end of the necklace can be pulled through to do other things, like be wrapped into a knot. 


I spent at least four months pondering this project, but when it came together, it flowed - I can't wait to do another one!
