Details of swap:

Maybe you've seen it at a Renaissance fair with some dude wearing chainmaille armor, maybe you've seen some lady wandering around with some lovely scalemaille earrings or a byzantine bracelet, maybe you have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about but would like to try your hand at a new craft!

For The Great Chainmaille Swap, Round 2, we will be learning a new craft, or improving on one we already know. For this swap, you may use any combo of jump rings, beads/embellishments, wire, scales, etc. While doing a basic 1-1-1-1-1 is acceptable, it would be great if you took the time to learn at least one weave 

This is a FOUR point swap, and we will have all summer to craft due to a mixture of people's schedules and also the fact that chainmaille usually takes a bit of time to pick up and get used to. Extras are allowed, but not required. If you want to do more than four points, I'd recommend talking to your partner to see if they want to do the same, but if you just want to spoil them, go for it.

Round One Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386743.0

Point system:

By Points
Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

I'm asking that you post in the thread once per week, at least once sign ups are closed, okay?  If you are going on vacation/out of town/to your own funeral/etc, please let me know. I'd really appreciate it to know you're still alive (unless you PM me saying you're attending your own funeral, that might worry and confuse me).

For the sake of my sanity, please PM me with the following subjects:

Chainmaille Swap - Questionnaire
Chainmaille Swap - Sent
Chainmaille Swap - Received
Chainmaille Swap - Question
Chainmaille Swap - Other

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Okay I am seriously considering.  My dh is interested in learning the armor aspect of it more so maybe it would be something we could do together.  Does anyone recommend certain links or videos?  Looks like there is a lot out there.

You should!! Chainmaille is super fun, and really easy.

http://mailleartisans.org/ is a website with a TON of tutorials that should help.

Checking in- got a couple supplies from the local craft store- and placed two orders from two different places to get the rest of my supplies. Hoping they ship quickly ( I know at least one place does, because I used to work there!)  Have plotted all my chainmail goodies for my Craftster twin, and just waiting for the supplies to arrive!

Me and my sister in-law was in a car accident Saturday morning .i have a A-C separation in my shoulder a crack in my shoulder blade. Because of that, I have to have my arm immobilized and can't continue ringing. With the due date so close it would be unfair to you for me to drop out of the swap, best I've come up with is to send you the nearly completed pieces with materials to finish them unless you have another idea.

You havnt had much luck lately craftybaby. I hope you feel better soon. Im pretty much done with my package have one more item to work on and was going to work on it last night but my dog got hit by a car so I ended up doing nothing.

Checking in! The boyfriend just got back from a business trip, so I've been busy... but it looks like I have to redo an entire project that was finished due to weave impracticality. :headdesk: As an aside, I am no longer allowed to modify traditional patterns because "It's just so limp and wobbly", because it will still be limp and wobbly in the end and all I will accomplish is post-math headache. >.<

Post by: KodaNRoxyDogs on August 22, 2012 10:55:02 PM
Scarlet_Nights- sorry to hear about your dog. I hope hes ok!


I just completed the first item for my partner. Luckily, it was the hardest and most time consuming, so the rest will come together very quickly. It was a new weave, new technique, and materials I haven't worked with before. I have about 6 hours into it, but it is very, very cool. I thought it would be a little larger, but it still turned out amazing. I hope my partner likes it as much as I do!

Now.. on to the next couple projects I have planned. So glad this one turned out, and that its done!! lol

Post by: Solitary Cricket on August 24, 2012 06:38:02 AM
So I have two - three things done. Both of my "stretch"/try something outside my comfort zone projects still need to be tackled. (I think one really won't work which is why there are two ideas) My supplies are not coming nearly as quickly as they did with my first order, so I may have to improvise in order to make send outs- but that's not a huge deal.

A few last minute adjustments to some stuff this evening.. One piece didnt turn out anything like I was planning, and another project didnt work outentirely ( thats what I get for buying rings without measuring/double checking things.. oops!) but, I am really happy with everything Ive done, and I hope my partner likes it too. I should be on track to send tomorrow, as long as I can get out of work on time!

Its possible I just missed the gallery ( im going on about 22 hours no sleep, and about as many hours work in the past two days)- but since i will be out of town for the next week, I wanted to post the lovely things that I got from my most amazing Craftster twin, Moriwen! I will post to the gallery when I get back, or if you have pics and also want to post in there Jess, please feel welcome to. I just had to share!

Heres all my loot:



two necklaces, two bracelets, and some super cute flowers!

Heres a close up of the two bracelets- so pretty



And the chainmail pendant neckalce:



And finally.. the most amazing all chain necklace ever. Seriously, this picture does not do it justice. I literally "squee!!!"ed when I saw it- you can even ask my fiance. He was kind of confused..lol. This is just so... awesome. I always mean to make myself an all chain necklace that I can wear with different things, and I never do. And, this is totally perfect. It had just a hint of pretty blue, and it will work with pretty much everything! ( excuse my messy counter, I had to take a picture really quick so I could post!



Thank you so much for such awesome items,Jess. I really love everything!

You are very very welcome! <3<3 I had a blast making that ripple chain, it's a completely zen weave that comes out so pretty!

Sorry to report our one and only flaker for this swap, Fullmoon, who has been active on craftster, out of communication, and has not sent a package.

An angel will be posted for shortly.

Sorry I haven't been about to post pictures, it's been a wicked awful past few weeks. I'll try and get some up tonight (I feel like an absolute jerk for not getting anything up sooner) but I don't actually have a working camera anymore after an incident with my kitchen's construction, a brand new granite countertop and a misplaced digital camera at the hands of a small child... >.<

Everyone's okay... but the remnants of my camera are pulverized. I'd take a picture, but well... ^w^ (gotta laugh or I'll cry)
