It is time I wrote again here. This is what I have been up to, chainmail! started with one helm chain, with the beads on either side. But they flopped under the bracelet, and were not very visible. Then this morning I had the bright idea of adding another helm chain, and joining them with rings with the beads. I think it looks a lot better now.
The rings are aluminium, and 3,5 mm glass beads.
