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.
