Byzantine bracelet

This bracelet is made from 18 gauge sterling silver wire. I coiled the wire around a mandrel and used flush cutters to make jump rings, then put them together following a tutorial for the byzantine pattern. The clasp is more of the same sterling silver wire, formed and hammered flat on a stainless steel block. I work hardened and polished the bracelet with a 24 hour run in the tumbler.

Kimball bought this one, but I may have to make another one for myself...I like how it looks and how solid it feels.
