    Thank you j_betts. I will try out the hot sauce.

    Brass cleaner+AA?

    So do you soak the pieces in the ketchup or hotsauce and then wipe/rinse clean or do you just rub on with a rag? I have some mixed metal or unknown metal jewelry pieces my stepmom asked me to clean.

    Vipersheet- specifically how to make

    Jeepman I will see what I can come up with in the next day or so. I originally tried linking two viperscale strips together but that didn't work. My kiddo will be gone for the day tomorrow with the grandma so I have time tomorrow during the day to work on a picture tutorial. Otherwise it may be a day or so past that that I can get something together.

    Question About Clasps

    You could make your own clasp. Depending on what type of jewelry I am making I usually make an "S" clasp. Youtube has good tutorials for making them and maille artisans should have something on making a toggle clasp. If all else fails, bite the bullet and go to michaels. Take your piece with you for color matching

    This and the gold one are gorgeous. I would wear them with a pair of dark wash trouser jeans I have. I wouldnt wait for a more "appropriate" time

    Where do I start?

    I would say wait on dragonscale for a bit til you are good and comfortable with making E4-1. Ring sizes and Aspect Ratio play a big part in that weave. CIR is fun and good if you are just starting out. Milquetoast is right. The cgmaille website has wonderful tutorials. Mailleartisans is also good. Other than that, just have fun.

    dragonscale bracelet1

    I realize that now. The viperscale necklaces I made with copper were also heavy. I have just gotten spoiled on using stainless steel.

    dragonscale bracelet1

    Thank you. I know what you mean. Gold and silver plating rub off for me. So far I have had good luck with permanently colored copper.

    dragonscale bracelet1

    Made with 16 gauge and 20 gauge silver colored copper. Completely claspless. Why? Because I am a glutton for punishment. I didn't count rings before I joined the ends together but my best guess is 530 rings (6mm ID for the 16g and 3mm ID for the 20g). It is surprisingly heavy.

    elfweave

    So, I was able to make elfweave following ArmoredKoi's tutorial. Surprisingly it was very easy. Almost too easy that I was thinking I did it wrong. I kept double checking my work against his photos and finally against his finished bracelet pic and everything matched up. I am still surprised at how easy that was.

    Can't wait to see how this all turns out. Love the step by step you've shown us thus far.

    elfweave

    I'm up for elfsheet once I finally learn elfweave. Got my jumprings ready and have hours to spare to practice. Hopefully, tonight I will be victorious.

    elfweave

    Thank you Milquetoast. I read over the tutorial from the link you provided and that is so much easier to understand. I can't wait to try it.
