Pouch of Polyhedra (Open)

20 awg, 3/32" hoodoo hex in stainless steel with JPL seams in brass.  5mm Swarovski chaton captures at vertexes.  20 awg, 3/16" stainless steel pencil weave string pulls with 16 swg, 5/16" orbitals.

The geometric structure is an icosahedron-- the same shape as the 20-sided dice the bag was built to hold.

This is an amazing bag!! The blending techniques is great.

I have a couple noob questions if you don't mind though...

1. How did you mount the orbitals to the ends of the string pulls?

2. Is there a technique name for the capture you did of the crystals?

3. How do you get the pencil weave so rigid?

 

Thank you for sharing this, and for any help you can give.

Thank you!

1. The ends of the pencil weave segments are slightly narrower where they connect to the end ring so the orbitals sit snugly in place.

2. I just call them hoodoo captures.  I have a tutorial for these and variants on Etsy but I don't know what the policy is for linking that here.

3. Rings with AR = (number of pencil rows) + 0.2 are the minimum for that variant of pencil, so for these pencil 6 pulls, AR=6.2 rings are rigid.

1, 3.  I figured out my issue, I was using 5 row Pencil (only tutorial I could find) but Im pretty sure Ive figured out 6 row.

2. Are you MarchenMaille on Etsy? If so, I found your tutorial and will be buying it, if not, I will keep looking.
