    snowflake kits

    What all is supposed to be included in the snowflake kits? I got the kit a few weeks ago and have been making then but seem to be running out of the 16g 1/4" way faster then I should. My kit was suppossed to have sky connectors but the only blue rings I got were 18g 5/32" am I missing rings?

    How do you store your rings and things?

    3. Milquetoast


      If it's any consolation, the few times I've done rush it was sent out very quickly.

    Pricing your works

    Yeah barely over minimum wage and I'm management... Can someone shoot me? Prefferibly in the head? I know I could add a lot onto that cost but thats my way of figureing how much I am putting into each piece. At this point I'm only selling things to friends so that I dont end up with two million pieces that I'll never wear sitting around my house (I make jewlery and its too easy to make random things for no reason) and I would rather give them all away but I would go totally broke from buying rings...

    Pricing your works

    My formula so far has been, I time how long I work on the progect, round that up to a multibple of 5, multiply that by my hourly rate at my real job ($8.70 for me), then add the aproximit cost for matirial (I use all aluminum and rubber and just count it as $0.01 per a ring) then round whatever I've come up with to a nice number but so far I've only sold to close friends and family I would probly add an extra $5-$20 if I was selling to random people.

    Tumbler idea... might be bad

    I have a cheep little tumbler and thats pretty much how it works, so I dont see any reason it would be an issue. My only advice is you make sure all the wireing is good and that kind of thing before you leave it running over night or when your out of the house, cause you never know with free/exreamly cheep stuff
  12. kgirl1992


    its an interesting idea but not the most practical thing. If I wanted to straigth train and add some protection I would get waighted anklets and arm bands and carry a heavy backpack and wear a leather jacket, it would be much cheeper, quicker and the waight would be easier to ditch if you needed to run away from someone.

    Want to teach my kids ..

    I havent tried to teach anyone maill, but I would say start them on something that they can make in an hour and have a finished thing. Even if they rings are horribly closed and scratched up they will be way more inpressed by the cool braclet they made and they can wear then by an inch or two of Euro. So if I was teaching a 11 year old I would start them where I started 18 3/16 byzentien in aluminum, if they have trouble with that wire gauge you can go larger (if they are bending them out of shape) or smaller (if they have trouble bending them). Then once you have them hooked you work on better closers and all the boring stuff. I dont mean to be bossy or anything just my two cents

    how do you do it?

    I have a small plastic tray (an old take out container) that I hold little containers of rings in on my lap, then hold whatever piece in my hands, or I'll spread it all out on a table. But most of the stuff I make is jewlery and small stuff.

    AA rings in "new" colors different AR

    I've been haveing some issues with gridlock byzentien. I've made three differnt braclets with the same weave and ring size (bright aluminum, black ice & red, black & royal blue) and they have sugnifigantly differnt tightnesses of the weave. I could barely get the black ice & red one together it was so tight, but I dont like the look of the black & blue one cause its so loose!

    Amazing New Colors?

    The yellow I would guess is an anodizeing error, the bottom left is the new bright silver, other then that I have no idea but I like them!
  24. I got my new rings (and scales) in!!! Now time to compleatly forget everything I planned to do this weekend and play with maille instead!
