I'd like to tell you all right now that I apologize for the bad quality of the photos. My camera died. I made a nice little light box/tent, picked up my camera, and it refuses to turn on, regardless of how fresh the batteries are. I've tried every trick internet could give me that didn't involve physically abusing it (the darn thing wasn't safe from emotional abuse, but it's dead anyways, so it shouldn't matter what I yelled at it). Seriously though, there was one guy who swore any camera would start working again if you slapped it against the palm of your hand enough times after doing a few other nasty things to it. I just don't want to take that chance.
My boyfriend has a really nice camera somewhere, but we tore apart the garage (most of his stuff is out there, we're currently staying with his mother) and we can't find it. Apparently, he found his camcorder and says I can take great pictures with it, but it's still out there for some reason...
Anyways, on to the chainmaille!
...of course, the internet died literally just as I typed that...
There it goes! On to the chainmaille!
Here is a half persian bracelet I made. All the jewelry is made with 5/32 aluminum rings from theringlord.com
This is a boxchain choker. This took a lot of rings and a long time to make. It also hurt a lot...
Spiral Weave... I LOVE how this looks, but it un-spirals when you hold it up....you have to spin them before putting it on...
This one is Byzantine Weave. I think you need a smaller AR than I got in order for this too look good, but I like it anyways. I plan to make a long necklace (by which I mean a few inches longer than a choker) with smaller rings... Maybe even micro maille. I will hate myself afterward, but I love the smaller byzantine weave.
Some other things that aren't necessarily jewelry, but I don't know where else to put them:
Chainmaille dragon. He is awesome. My boyfriend wants to keep him.
Ironman "Whirlybird". I've made a few of these:
And a keychain:
Anyways. There you go. I just haven't posted anything in a while because for some reason I don't like posting the camera phone pictures. Hope you like them anyways!
