I was actually made to wear those detachable lace collars when I was young, at parties at such, so I feel a bit strange about them being cool right now (“right now” probably meaning a year ago, my knowledge of fashion and trends being what it is). But the idea of a chainmail collar seemed so unresistable in its strangeness that I had to make one. So 223 split rings, a bit of chain and a lobster clasp turned into this necklace:
Making it was quite time-consuming, at times frustrating, but being the craftsy gal that I am, I really liked making it! I shaped the collar with the help of wikihow and a triangular piece of paper used as the pattern.
I think I might make some more chainmail jewellery in future! I really like the look of it!
Haven’t figured out what to wear this with yet…
