Fire in Black Chainmaille Handflower


Fire in Black Chainmaille Handflower

European 6-in-1 weave in black with a fire design. Wristband is One Hour Less Sleep weave of blue and orange in front and copper and purple around the sides. This handflower has a yellow cable-chain ring for your middle finger, and a scroll-design toggle clasp on the wristband.

I made the links for the chainmaille by coiling and cutting 20g. colored copper wire, then wove the chainmaille. The ring chain and toggle clasp are from a craft store. It took me about 14 hours to make this handflower.

There is some antiquing in the scroll design of the toggle clasp.

The handflower is 4 inches from wrist to knuckle, and 2.5 inches wide in the middle. The wristband is 7 inches long, the ring is 4 inches around.
