Japanese Chainmaille Ball by brumagem Japanese Chainmaille Ball by brumagem
SUPER TINY LINKS + ANCIENT PLIERS = :iconsuicideoniplz:

With that out of the way, this is a Japanese-style chainmaille ball with a little Byzantine chain to use as a cell phone charm-thing!

20 gauge 1/8" ID links, grey ones are stainless, colored ones are aluminum. Used this tutorial and this tutorial.

Adoooorable! I have yet to make one of these, but seeing your tiny ball as a cell phone charm makes me want to start small!

Mini ball! Those are really small links but I am glad to see it turned out well. Whoohoo for the products of my tutorial. ^_^

I was displeased with the obvious gouges in some of the aluminum due to the crap pliers, but even this small project left me feeling highly satisfied with my work and wanting more! :iconplanningplz: This hobby pleases me! Thank you for introducing me!
