151  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Drink Can Pendants And Cuffs ( New pictures on page 9) on: June 13, 2011 06:18:51 PM
So, correct me if I'm wrong, but if you look at the bottom of the pendant in some of the pictures (Particularly the DA pics) it looks like it's just folded repeatedly.  That would be more than enough to keep the can piece in the sheet metal.  It doesn't look like it was cut much larger than the can to me though. It just looks like she lined them up, folded twice on each side and was done with it.  This would work for the bracelet (And explain the fold) if you do half in the twice-folded and half only once.  As for the ends, the frame idea made more than enough sense.  If you could get it all to line up nicely, possibly even fuse the sheet metal in some way, then you'd come up with something at least similar.

(Note about the "fold once" part.  If you're going to do that, you will want to fold an edge over the aluminum can to keep it from being sharp and keep it all looking nice.  It could also be two and three folds, rather than one and two.  I guess two and three makes more sense.)

Necroposting, but I want.  So hard.  I wonder if I could ever manage something like this...

www.mailleartisans. org  is a fantastic site for learning maille.  The earrings are pretty.
And everyone agrees that Phong's http://cgmaille.com/tutorials.shtml has the best tutorials.  ^_^

Haha, we'll seeeeee!  I can't wait to have my camera back. =3  While I've been here I've made some sweet things.  "Shawn" "Chew" "Stephen" and "Rawr" out of copper wire.  Two pairs of silver earrings that will BLOW YOUR MIND! and assorted other things. Haha ^_^  I'll also post my plarn bags 'n stuff I think.  Even though Shawn doesn't think that they are classy.  -Coughs and glares at Shawn to her left.-  But yeah, lots of excitement. =3

Ali!!!  And I didn't teach you much, just gave you nudges at the right times. ^_^  I suggest outside now that the weather is clearing up, or grabbing a cardboard box, some wax paper, tape and a few bright lamps.  You can make a cheap-o light box and that will help with the lighting issues, both too dark and too bright.
As for the rings, just find a 1/8th drill bit and you can make short coils off of that. [=

Haha, I found you. =P  Also: If the rings on the first set of earrings you made were pink (I believe they are the rings I'm thinking of, but could totally be different) then they'd be 20g 1/8 ID.  And the "Daisy" is actually just a single unit of Jap 12 in 1.  As for the chain on the side of the first bracelet with the "daisy", it could be thought of in one of two ways.  A simple 1-2-1 chain, or it could be thought of as a single "row" of E-4.  If you look at it, if you take the larger rings, put one through one of the smaller rings on either side (stacking the larger rings, of course) you'd end up making Euro-4.  To reduce blur, find a tripod or put the camera on a stack of books and use a timer.  Having better lighting can also help minimize the amount of blur in your pics.  I love you Ali, and you're doing awesome. <3

Couldn't the squash-cubes make a nice snack for a teething baby too?  It seems like they'd work well.
