okay lemme guess:
2 coloms of persian 3-1 (stainless from the look of it)
braided in with cords of either yarn or wool.

a nice bracelet, very intricate ^^

Hehe, you shouldn't have guessed... as written in the description, it's a stainless steel chain. The weave is called Great Southern Gathering (GSG).
The braid is done in embroidery thread.

Thanks for the compliment :D

hey,
yeah but I couldn't help myself ^^;
the stainless was pretty obvious, but I have never used GSG before.
I do however have a great deal of experience making persian 3-1 hex weave, (sheat)
and it looks exactly the same. there might be one place where it goes underneath in stead of over, but I'd have to get that piece out to check.

the braiding is a nice touch, though I don't know the difference between sewing thread and embroidery thread, as I have used both to do both.

Obviously =_= So, for the smart one... How were the braids added to the piece?

dunno, I'm guessing it's three strains of three colors, painstakingly woven into the maille. if it is that would have taken a lot of time. but I can't imagine how else it was done.

ps, sorry if i came on to be a smart-ass, but when I see two coments asking the same thing, i kinda feel like it's free to speculate on it^^;

Ah-ha...

It's okay. Just remember that I asked that first x.x I don't like it when people do that... So, it's all good :hug:

It's just a plain braid. I've done some crocheting a long time ago. But I never tried to combine it with chainmail.
(Maybe I will try to add some crochet detail to a chainmail bracelet someday...)
