This is a project that I will be giving to my sister as a gift.  She'll be so surprised since she had no idea I was working on this.  She has been a huge fan of this Sesame Street character since she first saw the show 20+ years ago.  Grin

Behold: Grover!!


Made with anodized aluminum and bright aluminum rings. I will eventually be putting a "background" on it, and make the full piece square.  The "border" will be done in bright aluminum (aka silver color).

*Edit* Changed link to the picture because I upgraded my gallery...

Very cool! I haven't tried my hand at inlays yet, but a big order of anodized aluminum + neoprene is in my near future, so maybe this is too!

Oh, how cute!  How long did that take you?  I've heard chainmail is time consuming.

Not sure how long it took me as I wasn't really paying attention.  It was at least 2 hours maybe? I worked on it over a few days in small chunks so who knows the actual time on it.

It was also a freehand inlay, so the planning might have added some extra time on it. Not too much since it was a simple design.

Very cool!  (Though I'm a Cookie Monster acolyte myself -- my first ever 'formal' craft project was a latch hook Cookie Monster pillow.  Wink )

I'm contemplating making a maile cuff (having never done chain maile before) -- is the anodized color durable enough for a hard-worn item?

Kudos again!

I have a few anodized pieces of jewelry that I wear on occasion, and the color is still intact. The color can be scratched/chipped if scraped on hard surfaces.  Not sure what exactly counts as "hard worn".
