Ello!

Thought you might be interested in this.....



Mostly aluminum rings connected around a tuna can at the bottom. The very top has a leather thong to hang it from, helps with the heat after the candle's been lit for a while.

I have to make another one soon, my wife stole this one! Smiley

Like it?

Technically, no. They are mostlyl 16ga 1/4" aluminum rings, I think they're too big to be called jump rings. Smiley

The whole thing is a little more than a foot long, and as big around as, well, a tuna can!  Grin

Hawkwolf:

Did you use a pattern, or come up with one on your own? I've been planning on learning how to make chainmail, and this just may be the project...From my understanding, it's one of those things that 'looks harder than it really is' (like knitting).

That is very cool, and I'm not suprised your wife stole it from you! I could use a few of those when we do our reenactments...
peace

Piratestooge - yes there are many colors available, more if you can anodize them yourself! I have to buy them , until I can get the materials together to make an anodizer and get the dyes. At the ring lord, they have red, green, black, orange, blue, purple, gold, not sure what others right off the top of my head.

Monstergirl - Actually I didn't use a pattern...... but if you message Moobaa, I sent her a description of the process. Perhaps she still has the message I sent? it was rather long, and I didn't save it like I should have! Smiley

What reenactment group are you with, by the way?

WOW!!! Thats awesome!!! I love it! I really like making chainmaile...though the only thing I can make is a bracelet (The one I made was 5 or 6 chains wide) But I still have flaws in making it-as I make the loops as well...so how would I go about making them so it doesnt fall apart while i'm wearing it?

Darkest Faerie: What gauge wire do you use? Perhaps the inside diameter is too large for the gauge of wire you're using, making the rings too weak to support their own weight?

That;s amazing!  About how long did that take!  It looks like it would be very time consuming...  All those little rings things... Shocked  Congratulations on such a great lamp thing...
