  1. Just finished all but the tiny rings on fifty-four (54) Celtic Star ornaments. Man, this has taken a while. Also? Ow.

      Bright Aluminum. I'm not (quite) crazy enough to try it in, say, stainless steel.

      I once made about 25 small stars in sterling, and 200 medium stars in bright and anodized aluminum for my wedding. I feel your pain, LOL!

  2. My latest order just showed up! Wish I could skip work tomorrow to play with all the new toys!

  3. Lots of stainless steel rings, as a wrapping for a present? Awesome, but hands are sore. And not completely done.

      The guy I'm giving it to has worked on a couple of chainmail bracelets, so he's got the general idea. And I'm sure he'll figure it out, one way or another (which might involve them being thrown at me)

      I know the feeling... I just did a 24 inch Rondo - I had to coil and cut all the rings used. It took forever!

      If you do that double wire thing though, isn't there a risk of cutting unequal rings?

  5. Rather enjoy watching a length of chain grow before my eyes!

  7. Making rings from paperclips for a super-silly project.
