I'm looking over a four-leaf clover...

I've had a these links kicking around in my head for a while now, and today they finally came to fruition because I got tired of zero earrings in my Etsy store. (I'll work on the earrings page of my website soon, I promise).

Chain-maille involves a delicate balance of aspect ratio (ring diameter : wire thickness), and this pattern has three different sizes of rings. It took me a few tries to find a set that would play well together, but I like the way the twisted ring (the only kind I had in that size) looks in the center. Oh, and for you detail types, it was completely by accident that one link is the mirror image of the other.

Anybody (besides my mother) ever heard that clover song?
