Chainmaille Lariat

This heavy sterling silver lariat is woven with 16g rings in a tubular variation of the European 4-in-1 chainmaille weave, and feels so good to wear - it drapes so gracefully! I used snowflake obsidian and gorgeous tourmalinated quartz for the dangles - I wanted to use just these beautiful pieces of tourmalinated quartz, but I didn't have enough! Don't you hate when that happens? But the snowflake obsidian fills in nicely, I think.

The chain is fantastic.Very unique and good taste.It's also elegant with that incredible ending.

Holy crap! Love that! I've fallen in love with lariats lately, for some reason~they do wondrous things for most faces. Chain maille is not really my thing (not that I don't like it when someone else does it, I just have NO interest in doing it). Dang.
Might have to learn how.
My fingers hurt already.
