would you mind if I tried to emulate this design? I have finally got a hold of some rings & would love to make something like this as a first piece.

Not at all! The segments are actually very common, based on a byzantine variation weave called Romanov. I definitely can't claim this as an original weave, but I appreciate you asking! :D

Very nice! Its cool how you altered the chain to serve as a bezel for the jewel. Byzantine is my favorite type of chain, its one of the few that can't be produced by machine!

You definitely need to start making these in silver. You could sell them for so much more if you did. Those beads really look like set stones. Consider trying it out in a smaller gauge of wire, like 20 or 22, and using some nice crystal beads too, that would be cool as well.

no problem, what was the id of the rings? Whenever I make byzantine, it is really loose unless I use the right sized rings O.o

It depends on if you count the coiling/sawing of the rings. But I'd say it took several hours, maybe 5 or 6? I could be way off here though, I don't time myself and I really should.
