Product Description

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)

If interested in the sterling silver toggle, I recommend the large toggle for gauges 12-16, and the small toggle for 18g & 20g.

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.
