You should consider doing a version with natural gemstones:

such as a suite of Montana Saphire or ;

Yellow grossular garnets, Spessartine garnet ( orange), Rhodolite garnet ( purple),Pyrope Anthill (Chromiferous)garnet (red).

You are welcome ! I think it would really be nice. If you can put your hand on well formed garnet crystal with their natural faces this could get even more interesting. :-)

Oh, now that would be dreamy! Alas, I would surely have to journey into the world of bezel-setting. I admit, that intimidates me somewhat.

That is beautiful, simply beautiful.
I don't know much about this, did you use a particular technique or did you make it up as you went?

Thank you. :D I've been learning chainmaille for about a year, and Byzantine is a style of chain weave. I just adapted the chain to work with the shape of the beads. If you'd like to learn more about it, [link] is a great website with plenty of information, tutorials and links.
