Very nice! My wedding ring is chainmail, made with red gold, green gold, and platinum, to show a 2D 'double helix' pattern. Your 3D double helix is beautiful! :w00t:

Very well done! I'd love to know how you made this! I can see that there are 2 spiral chains but have no idea how you were able to connect them.

Just a variant on 4-in-1 spiral, then? Or is this 6-in-1?

I'd be curious as to your ID and gauge.

Variant on the 4-1 Spiral. I know I used 18G but I'm sure what ID I used. I think it would have to be at least 7mm for the pattern to work though.

How cool is that. I've just been thinking of doing a few more little chain pieces for play and practice.

That's really cool. I never thought to double it up like that. Does it hold the pattern this way or does it still unwind if not linked?

It doesn't unwind, but it does fold over on it self if not linked. It kind of looks like two normal spirals are laying on each other.
