    last pic. these are 3mm jump rings made of 20 g silver plated wire. i made them. i am struggling to find a byzantine weave that is tight enough to please my aesthetics, while being loose enough to not drive me mad. today i am experimenting with making jump rings in 2, 3 and 3.5 mm with 18 g and 20 g wire to see which weave is the winner. will post pics when units are done. thanks for looking
