    7th Anniversary

    Best felony ever.
  2. I placed a custom order on Friday, and I can't sit still. I hope it turns out like I'm imagining.

      I think you'll be happy - your custom laser engraved tags looked great. I didn't take a pic but share a pic when you get them.

      Of course! What category would I post it under?

    Costume Coif w/ Inlay final

    Finally finished this, recently, after several revisions. I'm not going to touch it again except to replace the black AA sometime in the future. The front is closed with magnets. 14g, 3/8" BA in E4-1 16g, 3/8" Black Ice AA edge 16g, 3/16" Brass for trim.

  7. Bought rings for the first time in almost a year. I am excite. Especially since this is gonna lead to an even bigger project.

  8. Faire was awesome. Got to talk to some excellent maillers, and other visitors about the craft. One shop gave me some validation, while another kinda made my work seem pointless. Still had fun though.

  9. First trip to the faire after starting this nasty habit. I won't lie, I'm kinda hoping to get some compliments. Also looking forward to seeing the local artisan's work with new eyes. Excitement abounds!

    Laser engraved custom tags

    OMG this made me so happy. I want these so bad. D:
  11. It's kind of awesome getting to wear armour you made yourself in combat. :D

    Magic the Gathering Inlay

    Hell. Yes.
  13. After losing a weekend's worth of work time, I can finally get back to work. Which is good, because I only have 18 days to finish everything...

  14. Note to self: Do not misuse tools, no matter how frustrated you are. You will break them, and have to replace them. *sigh*

  15. 16g 3/16" is quickly losing its charm...

  16. Got my latest order. Time to play with new materials (brass, stainless & rubber) and make a couple birthday gifts. :D

  17. I love my friend Stray. In his mind, as soon as I took up maille, I became a master, capable of great things. Bless his heart. His trust in my ability is overwhelming and empowering.

    "Ropes" Prototype

    Far as I'm aware, it is. Gravity is not it's friend, granted. The ring size makes for large spaces, which causes the weave to hang in "bunches" when suspended. Laid flat, it looks fine, which you can see in the proceeding photo. I think slightly smaller rings, or a larger gauge might fix the problem, but that would require making custom rings, which I'm not doing yet.

    More practice. I really like this weave. 14g, 3/8" & 16g, 3/16" Bright Aluminum

    Thanks! I might try that if I have enough small rings to do the whole patch.

    Snake Skin Bracelet

    Tried making Snake Skin, but the the small rings were too small. So now it's a bracelet. Have to replace the clasp though. 14g, 3/8" & 16g, 3/16" Bright Aluminum

    My first try at Dragonscale. The combination of rings I chose is a little off, letting the small rings shift about, but overall not a bad first try I think. I may use this for the project it was intended, or I may try again to get a better combination. 12g, 5/8" & 14g, 3/8" Bright Aluminum.

    My first shot at scales, using large, black anodized aluminum and split rings. I had enough to make two such patches, which are going into a project I have planned down the road.
