Chain Maille Tutorial – Byzantine and Box

The Byzantine chain maille pattern is the perfect entry into the fascinating world of chain maille jewelry. Known as Etruscan, Birdcage, Birdnest and (my favorite) Idiot’s Delight, Byzantine is a weave of many names.  It looks complex, but you’d be surprised at how easy it is to make into beautiful jewelry!

The Box weave’s other name is called Queen’s Link or Queen’s Maille. It’s a denser weave than its close relative Byzantine, which means it a thicker and more substantial weave.  But it also feels absolutely wonderful against your skin!

Both of these weaves are quite versatile, which is another reason to love them.  Earrings, necklaces, bracelets — all are great.  And they are wonderful styles for both men and women.
