The results of Caerthe’s Jewelers’ Guild

Last month, the Jewelers’ Guild of Caerthe learned how to do copper enameling. We each made a piece for ourselves, and then several of us in turn made a Keystone medallion for our Barony.

It was then my task to make the cords and chains for the finished medallions.

And here is a close-up of the double-woven trichinopoly (aka: Vikjng wire weaving)…

Next up is the close-up of the 2-3-2 jewelers’ chain (which if you turned this into a flat-weave would be a modified Japanese 12-2 pattern, using a square weave, rather than a traditional Japanese hexagon weave).

And lastly…below is the close-up of the Byzantine chain.
