That's FINE (Viking Knit Bracelet)

I love Viking Knit. It can be a tedious process, but the end result makes it all worth it. I just finished this gorgeous viking knit bracelet for a customer, I pulled it out of the metal tumbler this morning. I think it's my best viking knit item to date!  What made this one work so well was that I made it with FINE silver instead of sterling. I had no idea how much easier it would be. Fine silver is more malleable, less apt to tangle. Of course I still used sterling silver for the handcrafted end caps and forged hook and eye clasp, but from now on it's FINE silver for Viking Knit.
