    Cord lock/stop ideas

    Ah! I thought they were spring loaded. I get more requests for spring loaded wood stoppers on bags and darned if I can find 'em.

    weaving with one hand?

    What about a 3rd hand soldering helper? I'm not sure about the strength on these things and it might need weighed down but it might be an option.

    PlutoniumX: Where did you find your wooden stoppers? I've been looking all over for them!

    need help choosing suitable rings for E4in1 dice bag

    I use 16g 1/4" rings for my bags. I couldn't really tell you why. I just like the look.

    Pricing your works

    I haven't worked with any brass yet but I do love the look of it. I did a custom aluminum and copper pouch for someone and it came out really rather nicely. There's just something to those "old worldy" metals.

    Hah! Well, of course! Of course!

    I'll second this. I'm new to chainmail and I just made my first box weave bracelets: One plain silver aluminum, one silver and blue, one silver and green. I showed a rather fashionable girl I know and she jumped on the plain silver one like a dog on a bone. I told her I had other colors but she stated that she can wear silver with just about anything.

    New gallery/Shop is fully armed and operational!

    I am. I might drop the bags down to $45. Seems to be a pretty standard price for what they are. The rpger in me likes making them.
  12. So I've made enough random items to put up a gallery and shop (Tumblr & storenvy) and I thought I'd share my madness with the other inmates. I need to make some adjustments here and there (picture size was mentioned elsewhere) but for now it is what it is. Any thoughts, comments, or critiques on the shop, products, quality, pricing, etc. would be greatly appreciated. KBO Concepts KBO Concepts Shop

    New gallery/Shop is fully armed and operational!

    98% sure about the approximate ring count but I'll double check my math again once I'm home. The rings were pieced out into 1000 and 500 ring bags with very few left overs. The bags obviously need some re-thinking. Glad to hear the other prices are fairly spot on though. The team color earrings have been a good seller. Pittsburgh is batty about the local teams. EDIT: Good grief. I just realized that I put OVER and not APPROXIMATELY for the ring count. Duhr. I need a drink and 8 more hours of sleep. This day... They look pretty good in person (or maybe they don't lol) but I'll give the ring rocking a try. I'm definately not interested in putting out shoddy work. It'd probably help if I was faster but it's all a matter of learning what works and what doesn't without getting discouraged.Thanks everyone.

    Closures...I imagine I'm not getting them tight enough? Any suggestions on how to make them better? I'm curious about the bag prices as well, honestly. I used the "materials + labor x2" formula and that's what it came out at. Seemed a bit high to me but that's the formula that always gets thrown out. Hmm...something else to think about. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm doing this as a hobby but it never hurts to try and sell!

    Copying a weave?

    No, I don't think it would at all.
