I’ve been so busy lately that I just realized that I’ve not been posting in my blog — just in case someone out there is reading it I’d hate to think I was behind!

I’ve been having a wonderful and aggravating time this last month. Chain maille has really caught my attention and my attention span is generally pretty short.

????????This bracelet is called the Vertebra — among other names.
One of the things that amuses me is that people name weaves different names — for no apparent reason that I can see. You can hunt and hunt for a weave you saw and would like to learn all to find out that it has a different name for the tutorial or class involved.

Anyway, back to this bracelet — this feels so nice on the wrist — and it weighs just over 1 and ½ ounces –that’s a lot of sterling on your arm — just gleaming as the sun catches it.

It fits beautifully on my arm but I’m putting it up for sale on Saturday at the Dane County Farmer’s Market. Hopefully, I will be on the corner of King and Pinckney streets.

If you would like me to make one of these gorgeous bracelets for you please go to my contact page and let me know. It can also be made in pure copper.
