I have to say that your bracelets magnificent, and the tie is awesome too. If I had the time, and the two hands needed to do it, I would love to get into chain maille. But that won't be possible for a bit longer. Stupid machinary at work, always hurting me. But good work. I'd buy it.

Oi. Yes, I make chainmaille. At the moment, it is (unfortunately) my only talent in the craft area, though I am working on and off on learning to sew. Sort of. *Shrug*
Anyway, here are some projects I have done. Since the images I have are very large, I will simply link you to them. Better to do that than resize- then you lose a lot of the detail in the photos, and detail is what makes chainmaille so enchanting, yes?

 Oh honey, if you can make chainmaille, then it is not your only talent in the craft area...wirewrapping, wire connection, etc is in your future.

Your 6-in-1 Origami piece is very reminiscent of the butterfly weave (of which I can no longer find a pic!).  That's the beauty of the Japanese weaves...they are so adaptable to so many designs.

And the tie..what fun!


Spider does great work with the Japanese weaves...http://www.spiderchain.com/

I used to cut rings by hand with aviation shears.  Then I progressed to a jeweler's saw, now I use a koil cutter...much easier on the hands, and you get the beautiful flush cut.

Weave on...it is addictive isn't it???

The tie is amazing!  Sucks that it's heavy though, so not too practical.

Hahaha. Thanks, Tink. But don't worry. Soon I will have you outdoing me, unless I get a jeweler's saw soon.

Perhaps. I doubt it, though- I am not much on any of that.

Eh. I just have a pair of 6" Stanley wire cutters that I use, unfortunately. I am going to commit the sin of selling a few pinch-cut pieces to get money for a jeweler's saw, if I could find out how much they cost and a place to buy one locally. I might just give in and get a few online, though. What is a koil cutter?

Very much so.
Also, I created another tie- my third.
