MOAR Chainmaille!

Just a quickie today…as I hear the pliers calling me even now.

 

I got to put the finishing touches on a couple of things.

 

Not content with JUST making cubes with the Shippo Tsunagi weave – I tried my hand at using a single long strand as a choker.  I think it turned out rather well.

A new conjure princess-choker also emerged:

Conjure E4-1 red and black

This is my first attempt at different colors in the European 4 in 1 weave, and I added that step in the weave I find so very fantastic.  Soon (as directed by purchases of colored rings) I see myself sitting down and crafting an inlay.

Lemme explain…

An inaly, as defined by the chainmaille community, is a simple sheet weave, usually E4-1, where a pattern is woven into the thing with different colored rings.  Some people out there are coming up with INSANELY detailed stuff:

 

And, maybe one day, I’ll be that detailed, too.  But for now – I think, once I’m ready to tackle a longer range project like an inlay, I’ll stick with something really simple.

Or maybe I’ll go back and finish the dragons…the gold guy still doesn’t have feet.

      I love doing chainmaille….it’s prettier than a therapist (but only marginally cheaper!!!) and doesn’t try to prescribe pills to make me ‘normal.’

      If I wanna relax at night – pliers, jump rings, and a movie on Netflix I’ve seen 20+ times before (and thus, can safely ignore) are just the ticket 😀

      Very comfy…I build chokers that are “puppy safe.” According to my DIL (who did the ‘guest neck’ thing for the photo) – puppy safe means you can easily stick a couple of fingers between your neck and the choker.

      I’ve run around in the original prototype (only 7 crystals and a small extender chain in the back) a couple different times. No scratching, no binding, no feelings of choking at all. And…because the large rings are aluminum, it’s pretty light, to boot.
