My latest jewelry finish

Many of you don't know but as a hobby I make chain maille jewelry out of sterling server.
This bracelet was made during the time I listened to Leo Laporte's Tech Guy broadcasts.

The design is called Celtic Strap and is made with two sizes of silver rings. None of the rings are welded but all are closed simply using 2 pairs of pliers in a technique called "butt maille" since the ends are just butted together.

This picture is actually a thumbnail, if you click on it it will open up full sized into a larger window.
