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.
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.
