The project woven by Bead&Button staff member Linda Augsburg (Wirework 2010, page 30) uses sterling silver rings and Bermuda Blue cosmic rings. Rebeca's project on the cover used sterling with vitrail rings.
Combine sparkly cosmic crystal rings with chainmaille to create a spectacular bracelet. The pattern looks more complicated than it actually is; this project is suitable for someone with very limited chainmaile experience. Choose from several crystal colors below. (Or, if you're one of those folks with more beads than you know what to do with, purchase the kits without crystal rings!) Sterling kits come with the filagree clasp shown at right, and the base metal kits come with the hammered square clasp as shown.
