1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Captive Bead Chainmail Ring on: March 05, 2007 12:12:06 AM
This is the first creative piece of chainmail that I've done since the Grover inlay.

Started out as an experiment with helm chain, and then evolved into this little oddity. It has a hematite bead contained within the helm chain which I closed up, and some plain 4in1 for the band. It's pretty chunky, and the cage part is about a half inch in height. I'll probably try it with some smaller rings next time.

Finally finished this after months of laziness...  It's a freehand Grover inlay made out of chainmail.  Bright and anodized aluminum. Basic 4in1 hung the "wrong way" to make it hang nicely.

3  UNITED STATES / Wisconsin / Wisconsin Artists webring on: October 15, 2006 10:44:52 AM
I created a webring for wisconsin artists a few days ago and figured I'd post here to see if anyone wants to join.

Wisconsin Artists

Also, if you know of any webrings that are already up and running for Wisconsin or other crafty stuff, please let me know.

Made these for a Halloween theme that the Metalweaversgroup has going on.


I think they turned out pretty cute in that cheesy Halloween type of way. Smiley

I finally got around to trying this out. I was surprised at how well it is turning out too.  It almost didn't happen due to the frustration of starting that chain in such a small size.  Cheesy

Stats: 20 1/8" Sterling Silver in hp3in1 plus a tigereye cabachon that I forget the size of.

It's not glued yet, but it's looking great for my first try. Smiley

This photo was taken a while ago, and I just finally got around to doing something with it.  Cropped, removed color, nothing all too difficult or involved but the results came out rather nice in my opinion.

The photo, to me, expresses the hunger or desire to create something tangible.  In this case, chainmail.

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Chainmail Grover Inlay on: July 29, 2006 10:14:59 PM
This is a project that I will be giving to my sister as a gift.  She'll be so surprised since she had no idea I was working on this.  She has been a huge fan of this Sesame Street character since she first saw the show 20+ years ago.  Grin

Behold: Grover!!

Made with anodized aluminum and bright aluminum rings. I will eventually be putting a "background" on it, and make the full piece square.  The "border" will be done in bright aluminum (aka silver color).

*Edit* Changed link to the picture because I upgraded my gallery...

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Three simple chainmail necklaces on: April 22, 2006 10:46:17 AM
This is what I've been up to lately.  Three thirty inch necklaces, plus a bracelet that matches the middle necklace shown.  Been kind of a slacker with my jewelry lately, and my aunt helped me get some projects going.  It's nice to have a reason to make something.


All contain anodized aluminum rings, plus bright aluminum for the middle one.  First two took about an hour and a half to do, and the byzantine took about 3 and a half to do. (Small rings + 30" of byz... Yeah...)

On a side note, since I don't tend to do a lot of necklaces, any guess on a price at a quick glance?  I have prices figured out, but I'm curious to see if they are in the range for what people would consider paying.


9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Two new bracelets on: February 12, 2006 10:14:56 PM
Tonight I was trying to learn some new chainmail weaves, but that didn't work out so well.  I got frustrated because I didn't have the right ring size to actually make it work.

So... Instead I made two beaded bracelets.

The first is composed of two different styles of hematite beads and round tigereye beads.

The second has these face beads, purple potato beads, and again, hematite (what can I say, I love the stuff).

Simple pair of earrings done with chainmail and 6mm hematite beads.  I'm going to do these in sterling with some sparklier beads sometime soon.  They'll be pretty then.  Grin
