Love these!  Did you print them at all or do everything free hand?

I just made a bunch of circles in the Paint program....ringed circles so I didn't have to cut AS much though omg it was still a lot of cutting!

I live in a standard, cheap one bedroom apartment with my little boy. We're pretty restricted on what we can do with the place (we're not even allowed to have fish!!). My little guy's toys used to be all in the living room, including his thousands of collars in Legos . . one day I got totally sick of all of it, moved EVERYTHING into his own room and decided to make my living room more adult-like. I've always admired the beautiful wall decals on etsy (which I will be ordering when I finally buy a house), but until then, I decided to make my own:

coming from someone who is scared to put even a nail in the wall, I think this it came out pretty awesome!!!!
supplies - clear shelf liner and cheap acrylic paint. I made a whole bunch of circles in 'Paint' and went to town Smiley

thank you all for the comments! The rings are stainless so it took a while longer just for that reason since I am used to working with aluminum.

I love these! They look so simple (though I'm sure they weren't) and absolutely beautiful! Going to have to check out that tutorial and learn how to chain (is that what you call it?).

chain, maille, chain maille . . . . it's all the same Smiley Here's a link to the ring lord's PDF's if you want to check it out . . . 5.25US for a tutorial is pretty reasonable!

I bought the tutorial from theringlord.com . . .  and they turned out quite impressive and oh so stunning! If you know helm/parallel chain you would have no problem making your own!!!
Note that they are the BIGGEST pain though to actually get in the skirts the way you want them :S . . . they look great closed in the lotus position or opened!


more of a closed view:

unfortunately, the black ones are not anodized on the inside

I love 'em!!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Chainmaille swap anyone? :'D on: May 10, 2011 03:58:58 AM
However, The Ring Lord can get a bit expensive at times, and the shipping is slow and painful because it comes from Canada. Cry

Cheesy Unless you live IN canada of course, then it's only a couple bucks for express, super fast shipping!! I love it!!

Wow, I am thinking of joining my first swap ever!!

<blinkblink> GLOW IN THE DARK rings?Huh?  From where?Huh?

the Ring Lord!! awesomeness at its best . . . . unfortunately they are extremely expensive and wow, not nearly as strong as the rubber (the glowing ones are made of silicone) - I nicked one with an aluminum ring and it broke right away! but ya, to make a bunch of these stars for pendants, well the price doesn't seem so bad then!

ha, i rediscovered this tutorial  . .. on the 2nd page i commented before I was into maille i guess . . anyway THANKS for the tutorial . . . I've been trying to figure this out for a long time and you totally helped! it starts with just helm chain really, minus a ring . . you made it a lot more clear; thanks again! On a side note, the glow in the dark rings I ordered had better get here SOON because this is the perfect project for them!

I saw these, and did my own spin on them.  My husband and I hosted a cigar party this weekend, and I made zipper pulls for all attendees... decorations were cigarbands.

My first attempts are good, but not as nice as yours.  Thank you so much for the idea...

you're very welcome! don't be shy about posting your own pics; i'm sure they're awesome!!!

I love these!  Are the edges lined in anything.  In the picture they look silver, is that just the edge of the washer.

that is the edge of the washer . . . i cut the paper flush; had i wrapped it around the edges, the dimensional magic probably would have ran off the sides. Theis way there is the tiniest edge to keep the very runny stuff on so it sets
