Hi, I saw in your comment below that you mad the jump ringz using 18g wire and that they were 4.5mm. So, I was wondering...was the 4.5mm the inner diameter (id) or the outer diameter (od). For those not real familiar with chain maille, patterns will usually distinguish between inner and outer, and will sometimes give both along with the gauge of wire they're using. Reason being is, you may want the size ring with a specific outer diamter but the inner diameter changes based on the guage of the wire you're using and is important because that determines things like how many other jump rings you can fit through one jump ring without distorting it. That's about the extent of what I know about chain maille, as I haven't been able to afford the cost of good wire. And if I'm going to go to all the trouble and time to make ANYTHING, but ESPECIALLY chain maille, I want to make sure that it's going to be something I can wear! I'm pretty sensitive to just base metal wire/chain... :-) Thank you for your time!!! Oh! By the way, I failed to mention that your piece is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I was actually wondering if it was for sale?
