12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / (aluminum) diamonds are a girl's best friend on: September 25, 2009 06:54:41 AM
I was racking my brain as to what else I could possibly make with my maybe ignorant order of 3/32" rings. I had ordered them wanting to make finger rings, not knowing what else to do with them . . but i finally figured out something else


And since i loved them, but dont have pierced ears, i made a very mini-inlay pendant:

all of them together

thanks for looking!
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / i finally figured out half persian!! (then i went a little nuts))) on: September 04, 2009 06:25:17 AM
yay! took me MONTHS . . someone finally sent me an awesome tutorial and I got it in 2 seconds! i love this weave. I made most of this in 2 days

3 in 1 weaves:
works for stretchies!

flip them around for a different look:

multi coloured:

with aluminum:

i liked it so much, i tried 4 in 1


thanks for looking!!

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / new necklaces with scales and a thick chainmaille ring on: August 16, 2009 10:37:10 AM

thanks for looking!
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / first maille earrings, plastic tubing & stretchy flower maille on: July 28, 2009 09:52:44 PM
I am going to visit a dear friend who has two young daughters so I made a few things for them . . the LOVE earrings, and I think out in the backwoods where they live (where i also used to live) these will be quite the showstoppers!

I made her and I matching stretchy maille bracelets with two of my rare plastic flowers

and finally . . a trip to a mechanic's dream store led me to this tubing . . i LOVE it . . can't wait to stick some seed beads in there and see what it looks like . . for now I just tried with a thin chain, and it looks really really neat!

i also got a "wire twister" there which is sure to make some totally awesome stuff!

hope you all like!
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / trapped-beads maille & a rubber maille anklet-EDITTED more anklets on: June 14, 2009 09:40:05 AM
The photo that inspired me to get into maille was of a necklace using captive-inverted-round with blue swarovski bicones . . i was in awe of the beautiful thing! AFter months of trying to figure out how to start it . . I finally bought a tutorial and have now completed my inspiration . . (and soooooooooo easy it is!!!)

red iridescent glass:

pink glass and pearls necklace & purple pearl bracelet

And, inspired by my first ever purchase of capris (ya, I know . . . sooo out of it, lol) a rubber stretchy anklet!!

thanks for looking!


love these things! so comfy!!

and this awesome necklace I made with more of the plastic gems . . i don't have a pic of it, but there is a heart chain dangle that goes halfway down my back . . SO cute!

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First japanese-style weave plus scales from my sampler pack! on: May 09, 2009 03:52:46 PM

Wow . . when's the last time I have posted anything with beads??? I am totally obsessed with mailling now . . and the scales in the trial pack were just SO awesome, I might get into those too . . yay! Thanks for looking!
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my first micro-maille & a gothic rubber & aluminum necklace-EDITTED,2 more rings on: April 16, 2009 06:38:55 PM
I made two more with some anodized . . .

I cannot believe how tiny these rings are! it took me a while, but I  managed to make a ring with euro 4 in 1 . . now, just to figure out half persian:

it is so beautifully elegant and comfy!
next to a nickel for size reference:

and the necklace (with big rings)

rubber, aluminum, glass beads and this awesome matte chain that I got at michael's . . matches the kinda frosted finish of the rings!
oh my, I almost forgot my pretty rainbow captive-ring necklace:

thanks for looking!!
19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More maille! It is taking over my house!! on: March 28, 2009 10:38:06 AM
A belt! Started making a necklace and just kept on going . . . man, my hands sure hurt after this one!!

Rainbow bracelet

more stretchies

ANd I finnnnnally learned a new weave ( i am HORRIBLE with figuring out patterns) . . . captive inverted roundmaille .. . first attempt:

so with that one, I started out with two captive rings, but realized, wow, this thing isn't bending . . it would just turn into a stick!!! So, I joined the double rings with two chains of one captive . . though, my bro pointed out that the double captive would make an AWESOME curtain rod . . . lol, I will have to try that!

And, my second attempt  with that weave . . turned out beautiful . . I LOVE it!!! captive red and black rings:

thanks for looking!
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stretchy maille on: February 16, 2009 08:28:28 AM
I finaly ordered some premade rings instead of making my own, not nearly as strong ones . . and they had rubber ones online too! So . .
I made some stretchy bracelets .. no clasp needed. And seriously SO comfortable . . they feel like your own skin!

harley version for my dad:

and a necklace
