A couple of weeks ago, a lady on my chainmaillers group on Facebook posted a video of a new creation she’d come up with. Everyone ooo’d and ahhh’d and, with the fevor of hard-core creative types, requested (begged, pleaded, kowtowed, offered lavish sacrifice for) a tutorial become available.
Well, JUUUUST before Labor day – that tutorial suddenly appeared on the interwebz. There were delays involving technical difficulties with recording the tutorial video, a LOT of Facebook stalking of that thread in our group, a few bitten fingernails (mostly mine, I can’t confirm the status of anyone else’s digits) and, overall, a lot of good-natured ribbing as we waited for the magic images.
The $12 bucks I threw at her tutorial was some of the best money I’ve spent on the web.
She calls this pattern the ‘Infinity Rose.’
Damn…this thing is addictive – both to create, AND to play with. So addictive, sadly, that I think I irritated a nerve. The inner tip of my left ring finger has been slightly numb since Saturday evening.
My pliers are, for the moment, in the penalty (tool)box – waiting for some feeling to come back into my finger. With most sprains, strains and body-irritations, time & rest is what heals things.
But I’ve NEVER wanted to chainmaille so bad in my LIFE!
On the other hand, a forced break from creation is allowing me to get some well-overdue listings for pieces up on Etsy.
Come see what I’ve been up to 😀
Disregard the sound – Roommates watching Futurama when I recorded this…
