CIR Sheath


When making long sections of CIR wrap paper around the CIR, then tape around it. Make sue it is loose enough to slide on the CIR. If you need to leave an unfinished CIR, slide the sheath up and it will lock the last section in place until you come back to it.

because sometimes with CIR, when you stop working on it and lay it down, or transport it, it rolls back and dumps out the captive rings/pearls/etc. this ensures that it stays tight and in place where it belongs.

I use it on some of my stuff because I do a lot of non-conventional CIR (3 link CIR / 3 sided) - If you look close at the pic, it's actually 4 link CIR and gets extremely hard to do in 6 link and near impossible to do without the sheath 8 link and up.

Personally, I just add an extra section to the end and have yet to have a problem with captive rings coming out...but hey, whatever helps. :P
