HSF 14: #23 Modern History

So, Saturday was particularly productive.  I completed 2 projects and got half way through another.  The second completed project is for the Modern History Challenge….make something using a historical pattern but adapt it for modern wear.  This is my submission.photo (1)

What the item is: chainmail bracelet

The Challenge: modern history

Fabric: n/a

Pattern: European style chainmail

Year: this style was common from the middle ages

Notions: rings

How historically accurate is it? Pattern for weave is accurate and I believe the rings are accurate as well as far as metal content size and shape. They never would have made a bracelet out of it. 50%

Hours to complete: 2

First worn: for photo

Total cost: $8
