Captive Zen Sheet Full choker made in sterling silver.

Full view



Folded



Adjustable clasp



Close-up



Curled

As you can see from this curled view, it would make a nice bracelet too.
It's also a good weave to add beads to the edges if you like (don't beat me, bead haters Razz )

Rings sizes are all in sterling silver:
20awg 3.0mm, AR=3.6
20awg 4.0mm, AR=5.0
20awg 4.75mm, AR=6.1

Captive Zen Sheet Full is NOT a beginner weave. You should be very comfortable making orbitals before you attempt this weave. Very Happy

A lovely piece, lorraine and your photography is amazing. You capture all of the detail in your work so cleanly and clearly and this allows us to admire your work without being distracted by extraneous factors. I love the attention to detail such as the extender chain decoration and the handforged clasp. Lovely.

It's amazing, as always... This one is still on my hitlist of things to try.

That's absolutely beautiful, lorraine. I was going to make a choker out of Captive Zen last year to use as my "Steampunk" choker but in the end I got intimidated and just made it out of Dragonscale. LOL. CZ is still on my list to do...one of these days.

Very nice, Lorraine. I love the work and the photography. May I ask what you used for the display? Is that glass painted black on one side or just rock or what? CZ has a really nice geometrical look to it. I also think you could extend the weave much like Rondo or Ruffles to give it a "fuller" edge. And speaking of beads, you could use cubic zirconium and call the piece CZsquared. Smile

That's a floor tile I bought from Lowes. Very Happy
