Product Description

** All copper clasps are OUT OF STOCK! I'm searching for new copper clasps that are SOLID (there's lots of plated ones out there, but I'm holding out for solid copper!) but am having little to no luck. Until further notice, all copper kits will ship w/out a clasp. My apologies, but your local bead store will hopefully have something beautiful! I am hoping to have copper clasps back in stock sometime in November. **

Byzantine is a lovely weave perfect for beginners, or the chainmailling pro alike. 

Included is enough jump rings in your chosen weight to make a bracelet 9 inches in length, along with the clasp of your choosing. 

Not sure how to make this weave? I have a video right here! (Or scroll down!)

For your reference, the thickness of each size I offer is:

12 gauge:  uses 12g 7.0mm ID rings, makes a chain 11.2mm thick
14 gauge: uses 14g 5.5mm ID rings, makes a chain 8.8mm thick
16 gauge: uses 16g 4.5mm ID rings, makes a chain 7.1mm thick
18 gauge: uses 18g 3.0mm ID rings, makes a chain 5.5mm thick
20 gauge: uses 20g 2.75mm ID rings, makes a chain 4.5mm thick (also makes a great anklet)

Please take a look at the comparison photo for sizing reference when making your choice. Photos of jewelry are to show you what can be made with this kit - this item does not include finished jewelry. 

Please note that I usually use sterling silver clasps for bracelets made in brass.

    This kit was just as I hoped it would be. It arrived very quickly. The website is easy/fun to navigate. The tutorials are fantastic. I think chainmaille may become my next crafting obsession.
