I’ve been working on this for the past couple of days and it’s my biggest chainmaille project yet! I’m so excited about it, even though I exhausted myself and my jump ring supply. But at least the outcome is rather dramatic.
I didn’t know what to call this, since it’s neither a bracelet, cuff nor armband. Then I took it a little out of the jewellery context and voila, it’s a gauntlet.
Parts of the gauntlet are cinched in to add more dimension. At it’s most collapsed form, it rolls into 4 tubes. I’m actually still loving the tube structures. They’re popping out even when I don’t intend to have them, but I don’t mind. They might become my signature, maybe?
Here, I twisted the gauntlet around my arm. I like the fitted look too; it’s armour literally. It’s a pity it doesn’t hold up for long before coming loose again.
