New in Shop: The Fool

As I discussed when I introduced my Alienmaille bracelet, I love Euro 4-1. This necklace is yet another example of why I love the classic Euro 4-1 chain maille weave so much: all of the variations that can be made with it as a base. Simply by altering the amount of jump rings in each row of the necklace, dags (or daggers) are created. The dags in this necklace remind me of the typical court jester's costume, thus the name The Fool.

The Fool measures 19 1/2" including a 1 1/2" extender chain to vary the length of the necklace. The dags alternate in length from 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" from the top of the necklace collar to the bottom of the dag. The Fool was made using bright aluminum jump rings which are extremely light and so shiny that it is typically confused with sterling silver.

The Fool is available in Athena's Armoury's Artfire Studio and Etsy Shop.

Thanks, chica! I will gladly customize the piece with gems or crystals or whatnot. ahem, it was actually inspired by "someone."
