Chainmaillers Guild Challenge - June

So for the month of June, the Artfire Chainmaillers Guild Challenge theme was Persian Weaves. This is where I have a confession to make.

I have been doing chainmaille now for quite a while and I honestly *still* have problems with the Half Persian. I have no problem whatsoever with the Full Persian but the Half just destroys me...

So I still decide to do the challenge and of course do a Full Persian. Now I have had these really beautiful Swarovski drops for almost a year and now this gave me the perfect excuse to use them.

So my plan was simple, I would do a Full Persian chain at the top and then dangle these drops from the bottom. They are a slightly different color tone but the crystals in the flowers blend perfectly, so it acts as dual color combo. This is how the finished project came out.

Full Persian Copper and Swarovski Earrings

I have to admit that they turned out amazing. So much better than I thought when I first started the project. At first, I was a bit worried about the color difference but after I got the first one together it still blended in its own way.

It is now happy and listed in my Artfire Studio and hopefully finds a loving home soon.
