The Vikings probably did it with other tools and materials than Me. I use silverwire. This is how My silver look like when I buy it. Wire and plate in sterlingsilver.
I spin the wire around a knittingstick so it becomes a long spring. Then I saw them apart one by one. You have to have to sharp ends to get them together in a good way. IF you use a nipper to cut the wire you get to pointi ends. When you put them together that doesn’t work at all.
Two pliers are the next tool I use. And alot more of that patience. One by one in different patterns.
I call this one halffoolchain.
And this one anchorchain.
This is Round armor chain and it takes very many tiny rings to get a hole chain. Phu…. but it looks and feels awsome to wear.
Cant get enough. I love this.
How can it be better than this? Make the best day. LOVE you and this.
