- This is a variation of the standard Byzantine weave, called Byzantine with 3 connectors. I wanted to use all stainless steel for this bracelet, but the aspect ratio (wire diameter vs inside diameter) of the 6mm stainless steel jump rings would have created a loose weave if I had followed the normal Byzantine weave pattern. By adding the 3rd connector, the weave becomes tighter and sturdier.
- Weave Got Mail Byzantine kits, or some Chain Mail books, provide step-by-step instructions for the Byzantine weave.
- These stainless rings come closed. You will have to open a number of them, but won't have to do any additional work to have closed rings.
- Use 6mm jump rings for the Byzantine weave, and use one 5mm jump ring to attach the bracelet to the clasp.
