Captive Inverted Round comparison

Buy Add to Lightbox
My first chain mail (chainmail, maille, etc.) project, in progress.   Here I'm comparing how using two or three captives looks and functions; two captives results in a distinctly more flexible chain, three captives looks cooler.  This is a captive inverted round weave with 20ga 5/32" ID turquoise anodized aluminum and 20ga 3/16" ID bright aluminum rings.  The large blue ring on the lower project is a placeholder.
