Happy Friday: Mostly chainmaille

Hi everyone,
The week's seem to fly by, don't they?  Now that it's getting towards Spring, we have been taking advantage of some sunny but cold days to get out and about and do some swimming.  That's Lucca swimming, not me or Phil!

This was great fun and Lucca got a good workout for his dodgy elbow. Then one of those swans that you can just see in the background decided to swim over to remind us whose territory it was!  

Amazing what you see when you're dog pulls you to every available river.  From the distance, we did wonder out loud whether this was a toy helicopter!  We all thought it was a bit showy to have it on the lawn, but I suppose if you've got one, it's a challenge to find parking spaces big enough.  Not a problem I think I will ever have. The chickens seemed to be quite happy with it there. 

Jewellery wise, still mostly chainmaille. How long can this obsession last? Some of these bracelets are quite heavy - it's amazing how the weight of the rings builds up.

I love that this one looks a bit like knitting.
The weave here is held in place with faux brown leather cord. 
This one is my favourite, with a rainbow of faux pearls.

Which do you like best?

Here's the link to see what others have been creating this week at Planet Penny .

  1. Oh yes I do like the chainmail bracelet with the rainbow of pearls - it looks so pretty and reminds me of a bracelet I once had. Is it hard to make the chainmail ?

  2. These are such lovely pieces of jewelry you have created. But, I agree with you in that I love the rainbow piece. I love the different colors! Have a wonderful week :)

  3. These are amazing! I love the idea of knitted metal. Thanks for joining in with Happy Friday x

  4. Stunning chainmaille. I'd love a helicopter at the bottom of the garden! Have a great week. x
