DIY Romanov and Triple-Point Unit Chain Maille Tutorial

Tadaah!!! Just something I created today.
Romanov and Triple-Point Unit Chain Maille Tutorial
Romanov Unit is a variation of the Byzantine Chain Maille pattern where a bead is enclosed by 2 Byzantines. You can use each unit as charms, or earrings, or link them together to form a necklace or bracelet. With this tutorial I hope to show you ideas how to use the Romanov Byzantine Unit. To form 1 Romanov unit, first create your Byzantine.

The Triple-Point Byzantine Unit is where a half Byzantine chain is attached onto 1 unit of Byzantine. With the Triple-Point you can use it as a place to attach your charms or dangles. It can basically serve as a bail.
You already have 2 Byzantine units. Take the unit with 6mm rings at the ends and attach 2 on 2 jump rings at the center ring of the unit. On the image they’re shown as red and white.

Let the 2 last rings (white rings) you just attached fall to the sides and pull the inner rings (red rings). Set aside.
