Byzantine Medallion

by Darlene Ostrowski


Mix anodized aluminum with plain aluminum jump rings to create a customized geometric chainmaille pendant 1.5" in diameter. This lace-like variation of the well-known Byzantine weave was created by Blue Buddha designer Darlene Ostrowski.

** NOTE: Blue Buddha currently does not carry instructions for this design. This is an archived page intended to provide eye candy and inspiration. **
