More fun with chain maille

I am really having fun making chain maille jewelry. The weaves (at least, the ones I've managed to pin down at this point) are not that difficult once you get the hang of it, and chain maille is so visually and texturally interesting. I especially like working with aluminum rings because they're so lightweight, and there are lots of pretty colors! (Always a good thing for a magpie like me).
Here's a set I made recently, using the Full Persian weave. I love this weave because it's really slinky and flexible. Both are available in my Etsy shop. I've also added a Chain Maille Jewelry section to my jewelry website, which will have some pieces not available on Etsy.
