Golden Snake


I was meant to do another dragon but half way through I changed my mind and do the snake instead. Inspiration from the TV series "Millenium" logo, a snake eating its tail. Stubborn me wanted to do the head by chainmailled. It took me virtually the whole day working on how to do the head only, totally "free" weaving so it can not be reproduced. I can't remember how. I should have stick to wirework. Then again, this properly is my last chainmaille. Definitely not for me. Two tone again (you guys must be sick looking at my two tone stuffs by now) but more gold this time. 5mm Silver plated and gold plated ring with the exception of 5 large titanium rings for the head.

I came to your blog from Beadingdaily.com and your work is gorgeous! I'm sure coming back to browse your blog, when I have more time. I especially love those rivoli pendants. A new idea for using them.
And I don't see any problems with chainmaille for you. The dragon and the snake are fantastic! :-)

I agree with Kokopelli. You are amazing. I always lurk, I never post, but your work is so beautiful I have to tell you that you just made my day better by having created these jewels for me to look at.

Thank you.

Your work is wonderful. I am so very impressed with your skill and vision. I am new to chainmail, and making jewellery in general, doing it not because I like or wear jewellery myself, but for its sculptural/wearable art possibilities, and it's inspiring to see what you're doing in 3D with the rings.

I am most impressed with your work. Your work is about the best I have seen. Do you have any plans to offer tutorials for your rivoli designs?
