2 chains. Learning process

I have 2 chainmaille WIPs:
  • barrels
  • captured inverted round
I laid my eyes on 'barrels' a while ago. Finally I've put myself together to make it. Ring size for this weave is the same as for byzantine.
I've tried to make inverted round chain a few times before but all the time the ring size was wrong. The chain was terribly stiff. And now it turns out just the way I like. I will make choker if I have enough gold plated rings.
