Nyx - Byzantine chainmaille necklace by MermaidsTreasury Nyx - Byzantine chainmaille necklace by MermaidsTreasury
For this necklace I used hematite beads and stainless steel rings. The chainmaille weaves are Byzantine and Romanov, a variation of Byzantine.

Nyx (greek Νύξ, "night") is one of the primeval deities in greek mythology. She is the goddess of the night and the mother of personified gods such as Hemera (day), Hypnos (sleep) and Thánatos (death). She was thought to be a figure of exceptional power and beauty. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyx)

This is very cool! But I wonder what size rings you used? I'm making a byzantine chainmaille necklace from 6mm jump rings that don't fit together as tightly.

I used different sizes (2.5, 3.3 and 4.3mm ID) and it took me quite some experimenting to find out with which ones it doesn't get too tight or too loose.
