I finaly ordered some premade rings instead of making my own, not nearly as strong ones . . and they had rubber ones online too! So . .
I made some stretchy bracelets .. no clasp needed. And seriously SO comfortable . . they feel like your own skin!

and a necklace

I just love these!  How long did each one take to make?

OhMiGosh, where on earth did you find rubber jump rings?  What a fabulous project!  I, personally, love the choker.  Gorgeous.

thanks, guys! I got all the rings from theringlord.com . ..  they are surprisingly based in saskatchewan canada! bonus for me . . . the metal coloured ones took a while b/c the aluminum is a lot harder to open . . maybe like an hour? the coloured rings are much easier to open so the black and orange one only took about half an hour. I wish I could figure out more weaves . . all I know is 4 in 1 . . half persian looks good with rubber too  . . . but I can't follow patterns very easily

i just got a huge order from theringlord and i am loving the coloured rings - so easy to work with (tho i keep chipping the colour off by accident)

for more weaves you should check out CGMaille.com - a bunch of tutorials for some very cool looking patterns and they are pretty easy to follow

nice work!

Wow, these are so cool. I keep on meaning to learn chainmaille, it's such an effective technique. I think I'll put in an order with theringlord the next time I have some spare cash - I'd been meaning to get some cool things from there anyway :-)

I have no idea if they even ship to me, mind. Saskatchewan sounds like somewhere that is a Very Very Long Way Away from London [grin]
