 I named the piece Byzantine Flower Chain Maille Necklace. The flower pendant was constructed using the Helm Pattern I showed you last week. Originally, I created the flower helm as earrings, but I wanted to use every piece of chain maille I will learn and combine with new patterns.
The necklace itself is Byzantine Weave using 20ga wire 3mm and 5mm jump rings. The weave looks intricate and difficult but it’s really easy to make. I used red and silver colored wires to match the Flower Helm.
For tutorial purposes I used 20ga 8mm jump rings. So here it is…
Step 1:
Link 2 red, 2 silver and 2 red jump rings. Use a paper clip so the rings are easy to handle and won’t get tangled with each other.

Step 2:
Let the last 2 red rings fall on the side and pull the silver rings.
