Silver Rings

I finished this just before dinner and absolutely love it. The silver "fabric" has a lovely slinky feel and weight. This is the first time I've done this weave (the mesh looks like the Olympic rings on steroids!) so getting the hang of it was tough at first. I added one end of the clasp about 4 rows in and the extra weight made quite a difference. I only mangled one jump ring which is an accomplishment. I also practiced using pliers in both hands and only putting the down when absolutely necessary. I'm still a spaz but getting more dexterous all the time.

The next step is to add bead dangles -- lots of color and cha cha cha!
