just a random helpful tip...

when you are gonna take pictures so close up with

change the settings on the camera to the macro setting it lets you take REALLLYYY close up pictures with out them getting blurry.
Takes an Apple dude to state the obvious!
lol
ok the Instructable was a real good idea but, the pictures weren't so good... (no offense) I just couldn't tell what steps 4-6 was. I'm new to this jewelry so that could be why. oh btw, where did you get the silver for the project? oh and! since you're taking macro pictures try holding the camera further away and zooming in (may require a tripod) ;)
In the picture on the first slide it said that it was just typical electrical fence wire which is made out of aluminum.

Very nice, but the weaving instructions aren't very clear...and I'm not talking about the photos. Trust me, I know how hard it can be to explain something that is easy for YOU (or me), but I don't think I can follow these instructions. It could be just me (probably is!). Overall, tho, I like the way this jewelry looks. Guess I'll just have to keep at it to figure it out.
technics:
www.chainmaille.org (library -> weaves -> weaves home)
supplies:
www.theringlord.com (aka TRL)

byzantine is kinda simple - i made sum of red/silver rings for the sink chain in our kitchen. It's rather pretty to do sum beez byzee, if you want  to use that technic as base, but i actually prefer hourglass-chains, captive inverted round and the helm variant "Rondo" usin silver/brass rings.
no i didnt rally get it either but the link given by the guy/girl b4 had good instructions that are easier and faster (by the looks of the instructions of course) so check that out it helped me figure out how to do the weave

That is so epic! you could and should sell this! I'd Buy it ;) 

how did you put 2 open rings in 2 closed ones, (i know stupid question...) What tool did you use? Were the pieces straight? Sorry about all the questions, I'm new to jewelry thing and I admire your work.
Open rings look like the top right ring in the pic for step three. By weaving one side of the closed rings through the opening, one can get the closed rings into the open ones. Then a deft twist of the wrist and the open rings are closed. :)
