Wearing armour

I'm really loving my latest bracelet; it's a European 4-in-1, using two different sizes of rings, which makes it a very dense weave. It conforms to my wrist, and really feels nice. The bead is a big, flat, textured piece of multi-colored glass which catches the light; I'd tried it in a necklace a year or two ago and was not satisfied with how it lay, but in this bracelet, it's superb. The maille is about an inch wide, and it feels very substantial without being too heavy. I love the way it caresses my wrist.

This is the widest piece of maille that I've ever made, and yup, I'm hooked. I don't know if it will really protect me from anything, but wearing it does make me feel oddly comforted.
