Japanese Ball

Based on the tutorial by Corvus, this is a really easy one compared to other chainmaille pieces! Took me more time to find the right size bead than weaving the ball.

16 gauge (1.6 mm) copper rings from B3 (leftover rings for Byzantine from the practice kit), 5.6 mm inner diameter, making this a little bigger AR than in the tutorial, but with the glass bead tucked inside, it seems to hold its shape OK.

This is so much fun, I'm going to make a few more...
