Soldering your byzantine chain will be a challenge the first couple
of times you do it, if you choose to go that route - however, making
the byzantine chain was also probably a challenge the first time
until you figured out the pattern.
You must understand the question of whether or not to solder chain
mail rings is simply a matter of opinion. If you are able to sell
your unsoldered chains with out any residual problems, then why fix
something that is not broken for you?
I believe that if you were making your chain in karat gold or
platinum, the cost of materials would justify the labor to ensure
the quality and craftsmanship is top notch, ensuring this by
soldering all links.
I hope your anger has passed and you continue to make your chains
for people, you shouldn't quit anything you enjoy despite what
general consensus might say about soldering jump rings. All the
