Have I mentioned I've been addicted to weaving maille? I just found this shop nearby that sells beautiful coloured wires, and recently I dug up some charms I bought from my trip to New York. Also my lil' sis visited London and brought me some more charms! So I got inspired to weave chains with different themes Grin These babies I have been growing due summer:

Forars kaede weave for someone with fiery temperament or lover of spicy food:

Living in Austria "Spargelzeit" was first sign of spring! Weave is Candycane cord.

Juicy grapes for wine! Sweetpea weave in purple and burgundy.

What is better in summer than slice of watermelon? Bysantine with extra cage from bigger rings.

This I named Wings of Dragonfly, because wire colours match so perfectly with charm! Also my first Half-persian 1-4.

Pea in pod or just really sweety pea? Weave name is sweetpea, so I couldn't resist... Wink

Nicely done!  I still haven't attempted Candycane Cord myself, but I've heard it's a bit rough to start out.  How'd you fare?  And do you happen to get on #MAIL or #TRL?

My boyfriend is holding a Pokemon themed contest.  Interested?  http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.359328020778498.82645.352681428109824&type=1

I know next to nothing about chainmail things but these are all GREAT looking. I love how well the themes match the chains.

I'm such a newbie that didn't understand question about fare... sorry... Embarrassed I found instructions and tutorials from MAIL but don't have account there and I haven't visited TRL.
