Jewelery Workshop has another winner with this particular kit. The Byzantine chainmaille weave is one that once you catch on to it can make some very elegant and classy bracelet/necklace and earring weaves.

This kit is complete including a full range of jump rings in gold, a "french" macrame needle for holding the jump rings in place when you have to position them to add other rings to make the design and it even includes the little jump ring finger ring to allow you to easily open and close the jump rings.

The instructions for this kit were a little confusing at first and I think that perhaps a very new beginner to chainmaille may have a little bit of a time with the initial technique as the way in which the instructions show how to do this weave can be accomplished a little easier than the instructions provide. Overall though, once you have the technique down, this kit makes it easy to create a gorgeous bracelet in the Byzantine weave that is shiny and fun to wear.

The bracelet is completed with a clasp that is included in the kit as well and I was able to make this kit up in an evening and it turned out great.

At $10.99 this is another kit that is excellent for someone who wants to try their hand at Chainmaille but doesn't want to purchase all the equipment/supplies separately. I'd definitely recommend this kit to anyone who would like to start out with Chainmaille to learn a very nice weave that just might encourage you to divulge further into this beautiful art.
