161  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Chain mail jewelry? Need advice on a book and ring sizes... on: November 16, 2006 12:33:46 PM
Not a book, but since others have posted sites, the maille I have worked on has been in kit format from:
And I have had great success. They also sell rings, and can suggest sizes for various weaves, and sell sampler packs. Not as economical as a book and bulk non-precious rings, but the instructions worked terrifically well for me. My byzantine is one of my best items I have made.
162  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / beads don't travel well- other options on: November 16, 2006 12:29:14 PM
I make all kinds of jewelry, 'specially beaded, but also plenty of wire. It is about the only thing I have ever had any skill with.
I find myself traveling a lot, and have had too many frustrations hitting the road/plane with beads, so I want to find something else (besides reading!) that scratches that same crafty part of my brain. What do other jewelry-types do as a "secondary" and maybe more portable craft? Or, any ideas for revolutionary travel cases/strategies?
163  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: i'm a south paw, or tales of the lefty learning to crochet on: November 16, 2006 12:12:36 PM
I am a righty, but I just picked up the Klutz Crochet book and kit, and I found the righty instructions super clear. They have a short section on exactly how to hold yarn and hook for lefties, although the remainder of the illustrations are more righty oriented.
