    Viking maille jewellery??

    I just got home from visiting the Viking Ship museum, awesome place by the way, and didn't see any maille at all. In the Viking display at the Museum of Cultural History there was a 3-3 chain.

    Stretch bracelets vs loom bracelets

    I have had the same experience and I suspect it is the rainbow loom phenomenon.

    Amazing!
  4. Dropped my daughter off at University for the first time! Hope she has a great year and sticks with her plan to be a neurologist! I just paid the bill and can no longer retire, ever!

    Prom Dress

    Euar - Because one side was laced half way, she could take a full stride. Very little restriction on movement. Her walking in 3" heels, that is another matter! Here are some other pics. One of the back, side and close up of the top. BTW: Mailletec was great to deal with! Very helpful and speedy service!

    Prom Dress

    Now that the prom is under way, I am allowed to post some pictures! I am pleased with how it turned out. My daughter loves it! Mailletec Fabric (22g 5/32")and The Ring Lord 16g 1/4" rings. Haven't weighed it yet, but my daughter says most of the weight is around the hips, so the shoulders are fine!

  9. Almost finished my daughter's prom dress! First time using the welded fabric from Maille Tec and I love it! I'm not allowed to post pictures till after the prom though.

      This sounds so cool. I cannot wait to see the photos and hear her reaction of the dress.

    Anyone made JPL in Sterling with TRL rings?

    In case the question comes up again... I've made it with 19g 1/8" and 16g 3/16" both ordered from the Ring Lord. 18g 1/8" doesn't work, or at least I couldn't make it work.

    Surgical Staples and Chainmail

    I just had an interesting request from a guy I have done custom pieces for in the past. He has just had a triple bypass and wants me to incorporate the staples in bracelets for his kids. I have never seen a surgical staple let alone used one in mail! Should be interesting.
