Distracted by shiny stuff since 1989

I started out painting the back of a black suit coat with the james bond sillouhette and logo, but my dad decided to be helpful and wash it, and since it wasn't fabric paint, it didn't survive. :-( so in the last hour i've made this, which seems kind of fitting that it was last minute since MacGyver always used these at the last minute. ^.^ I give you the Rubber Band and Paper Clip necklace and bracelet! The rubber band sections are a type of closed ring chainmaille weave, called foxtail. You can find instructions several places, but i used this one
http://derakon.chainmailstore.com/inst.html
instead however, of neoprene rings or metal, i used those small black rubber bands normally used for braids and such. its just segments of 15 of those bands in the weave, then a paper clip, then the weave, then the paper clip. super simple and luckily, super fast. these pictures show just the necklace, the bracelet, and two very fuzzy attempts to show the weave and stretch of the jewelry.
Necklace:

Bracelet:

Stretchy stretchy (so fuzzy):

When I first saw this challenge I thought, "oh man, if I do this I'm choosing Macgyver!"  Seriously I was probably 8 years old when I started watching him and LOVED (not even a big enough word) his show.  I seriously still say I pulled a Macgyver every time I use an object for something other than it's intended use.  Didn't have the time to do anything, nor an idea of my own, so I'm so happy to see someone chose him!  Very good idea.

Thanks  Grin I'm glad i'm not the only one who loves it. I was always making contraptions when i was little... I also used to have to cry for help when i got to playing action hero person and would tie myself to something with my jump rope in order to "scale" it, and wouldn't be able to undo the knot.... I also ripped my pants once trying to lift myself up into a tree by hooking a carabiner clip that was on the end of a rope to my belt loop. beltloops are only meant to hold the weight of your belt/pants. nto your entire body... I actually had this idea before that of the suit coat, but it thought the suit coat would be cooler/more orignal, and it turns out that two other people painted clothing to look cool so it ended up being handy that dad destroyed it, i'm the only one with chain mail type stuffs! ^.^

Wow! I had my MacGyver-themed craft all planned out, and.... then ran out of time to make it.  Sad  I was so sad that my hero wouldn't be represented- that's so cool that you chose him too! Awesome craft- I think Mac would have approved.  Wink

Maybe I'll go ahead and make my thingie (better late than never, right?) - you've started a MacGyver movement!

Too bad about the coat. But sweet jewelry!

I use Derakon's gallery as a reference also, in fact my school's metalworks club linked to it for instructions for new members that wanted to try more at home. I haven't tried foxtail yet though. Very nice!
