Diamond Chain Maille

Tonight I learned a really cool metal technique known as Chain Maille at Need 2 Bead. It's essentially the joining of jump rings to create any design imaginable.

This design is a Diamond pattern, as you build up the links and then decrease them to create a diamond shape. The lamp work beads are the same ones as I used in The Love Knot.

It was much easier than it looks!
