Chainmaille Treasure Chest by ChainedBeauty Chainmaille Treasure Chest by ChainedBeauty
A working treasure chest, made out of chainmaille!

This piece took about three months worth of time to design and make, and went through many incarnations before it became what you see here.

About 4" tall, 5 1/2" long, and 2 1/2" deep, its a good size for holding all kinds of tiny treasures.

Mostly brass wire, with some copper worked in the lid, ranging from 16g 5/16" to 20g 3/16", using Captive Inverted Round and Dragonscale weaves, both modified slightly to fit where necessary.

This one was an incredibly late Christmas gift, but I intend that I'll be making another one soon.

Here's the detail pictures: [link]

*EDIT*
WOW A Daily Deviation! Thank you so much to everyone that commented, or favorited my piece! It means so much to me!

I also put this on my etsy page as a Made-to-Order piece, if you really, really want one, you should stop by: [link]
