This week it’s all about the byzantine weave. Chainmaille is addictive for me. I tend to stick to one weave and obsess over it for 1 to 2 weeks straight, then perhaps move on to another weave and obsess again. Anyways, following the byzantine bead dangles, I decided to utilise the clear chunky teardrop beads I thrifted.
I started with a simple idea of a chain and pendant.
Love the simplicity of this piece. I get a very European vintage vibe from this necklace; something a princess would own.
Then I experimented with something more geometric.
Definitely reminiscent of the Eye of Fai necklace. The triangle held up by gravity and tension. I don’t think it looks wrong, but it doesn’t feel too right either. There’s some something unsettling about it, and I don’t know what it is.
