    rockin the home made BA

    I coil and cut my own BA, though i do order the spools of wire from TRL because i haven't found a cheaper place locally to buy it. They come out really good. Only problem i have is that my saw cutting rig has some wobble to the blade so the openings are a bit inconsistent, but that issue will be fixed as soon as i can build a new rig.

    Help with planning super easy project

    My suggestion would be to download IGP from http://www.zlosk.com/pgmg/igp/downloads.html and start using that application to create your weave. Using IGP you can create your entire inlay design, see roughly how it will look in when in 4-1 chain mail pattern and it will even tell you how many of each color of rings to use.

    Elf sheet bracelet

    I created two identical Elf Weave bracelets then used the instructions found at maille artisans (link below) to connect the two to make an elfsheet. http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.php?oldkey=9028

    Elf sheet bracelet with rubber rings?

    Ok i got my rings and some time to finally post. It turned out perfect, though it is winter so the bracelet gets really cold sometimes. Here is the link to a picture of it. http://www.theringlord.org/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/5367-elf-sheet-bracelet/ thank you very much for the help.

    Elf sheet bracelet with rubber rings?

    This is exactly what i am wondering, by the look of the weave, i cannot easily see how it could be done and remain stretchy.
  12. I am curious if anyone has attempted to make a clasp less bracelet of elf sheet that uses rubber rings so it can stretch? Looking at the weave I cannot see an easy way to do this. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    on matters of bothe scale and elven design

    This may not be quiet as dense of a weave as a E6-1 or E 8-1 weave but this link contains a PDF that has a moderately dense weave that so far seems pretty sturdy to me. I haven't made a full hauberk yet but so far it moves well even though it is a tighter weave. https://sites.google.com/site/thehappybarbarianhordelands/scale-tutorial Found the link on the main TRL page for scales.
