Christmas Chainmaille Bracelet
This E6 chainmaille bracelet is made with green colored copper rings on the outside and red colored copper down the center. Gold-color jump rings reinforce the ends on the underside. Closes at adjustable lengths with a gold-colored lobster-claw clasp.
Chainmaille is 5.25 inches long with an added 1.5 inch length of gold color aluminum chain and a 1 inch golden base metal lobster claw clasp; 7.75 inches altogether. Should fit wrist sizes between 5.5 and 7.25 inches fairly snugly, or a smaller wrist more loosely. Can be adjusted on request.
Rings for the chainmaille are made with tarnish-resistant permanently colored 20 gauge copper wire in bright red and green colors. The rings plus the bracelet took about 11 hours to make altogether.
