Byzantine rose

One of my teacher's other students offered to teach a class in Byzantine chain making and I decided that chains are another area that I should learn about. This is the bracelet that I made in the class. I like the look of it and wear it almost daily. It is made of over 100 little silver rings that are individually connected. It took me about 3 hours to finish. The instructor said that she can do one in less that an hour and can watch TV while doing it. I'm not sure that I'm willing to make a lot of this kind of chain unless I can get to her level of skill and do it while watching TV.
