Get Your Chainmaille On: Celtic Knot Necklace and Matching Earrings

Chainmaille was historically more than just jewelry -- yes, it was actually worn during the Middle Ages as body armor mesh for battlefield protection.  And it was extremely heavy.  I prefer the translation of maille patterns for decorative purposes, in other words, jewelry!

This is the Celtic Knot pattern in a matching necklace and pair of earrings in argentium.  Certainly more civilized!

The necklace took HOURS to make, each link individually attached to those before it.  I can't imagine how long it might have taken to make an entire vest.
