As previously mentioned in my intro post, Chainmaille is believed to have been invented by the Celts. There are SO MANY variations and types of "Celtic" jewelry weaves that I cannot even begin to tell you about all of them here.
I think they're most likely called "Celtic" because they sort of mimic the way traditional Celtic patterns look with the amazing amount of detail and intricacy found in traditional tapestries and such. I'll make this a very quick post and show you the two pieces I have learned to make so far :D Also; as a side note, I have recently found a couple of articles that identify Helm Chain as part of the family of Celtic Weaves.
First: the Celtic Flower, which I have made in two styles. A pendant, roughly the size of an American Quarter coin (a little larger, but not much) and a ring, around the size of an American Nickel coin.
Second: the Celtic Stars which are a bit larger as I made them keychain size. They are around 2 inches all around.
Rings and Kits for all pieces completed are from Hyperlynks, Metal Designz, and Unkamen Supplies.
