Crystal (cosmic) Ring Byzantine
The project woven by Bead&Button staff member Linda Augsburg (Wirework 2010, page 30) uses sterling silver rings and Bermuda Blue cosmic rings. Rebeca's project on the cover used sterling with vitrail rings. Our sample to the right uses copper and Sahara cosmic rings.
Combine sparkly cosmic crystal rings with chainmaille to create a spectacular bracelet. The pattern looks more complicated than it actually is; this project is suitable for someone with very limited chainmaille experience. Choose from several crystal colors below. Base metal kits come with the hammered square clasp as shown.
You can also purchase the crystal rings separately on our Findings/Specialty Beads page.
Prerequisite: Proficiency in at least 3 chainmaille weaves. Knowledge of Byzantine extremely helpful.
