Coloured Patterns

By using different coloured rings it is possible to weave patterns into a sheet of maille.

I use black annealed wire along with the galvinised wire to acheive the two colours.
When designing the pattern it is important to know how the maille is going to be hung.
If the pattern is to go into wearable armour then the chains will be going down, as in the following image.

If it is going to be a wall hanging then the chains should go across and the rings are more open.
