This started as a little lark about a month ago.
The chainmaille form is called the Celtic Star. Basically, it’s a short length of Celtic Visions (WHERE do we maillers come up with these weird names???) chain circled around to join with itself and all the outside frilly bits tied up nicely with additional rings.
Well, I attached a couple of these stars together. And…meh. Took that apart, and attached a different way. That’s when the muse woke up.
Why is there a voice in my head right at this very moment screaming “DUCK AND COVER!”?
See – the 4 flowery forms had attached in a configuration that was VERY familiar.
So I rather quickly built up 2 more stars, and put them in juuuuuust the right spots.
I had half a dodecahedron…my favorite little 12-sided Platonic Solid.
I liked this form so much, I immediately went out (well, in…as most of my jumpring suppliers are online) and got the right size rings in bright red and green. I was making ornaments for the SQO’s family for Christmas.
Look pretty, no?
