    you'll never believe what mila kunis wore!

    of course not it's a transform tool, obviously.

    not everyone can be as beautiful as you, lorenzo. :-p

    interesting that an eye surgery could cause that - bodies are weird. neither of my parents have blue eyes (brown and hazel) yet both my sister and i have blue eyes (well, mostly blue in my case), so they must both have recessive genes for blue eyes (if high school biology was at all accurate)? like a 1/16 chance for that (if my college stats class was any better).

    i noticed that too in the picture, but assumed that it was just the lighting - interesting stuff! i didn't know center-heterochromia was even a thing, but i guess i have it too? - almost opposite of you - my eyes are hazel in the center and blue on the outside. must be genetic, because one of my daughters matches mine (while my other matches my wife's blue-gray eyes).

    i would have thought that too, but zooming in, some of the white "scales" have a bit of fringe or fraying along the outside that makes me think of heavy paper or rag stock or something like that. i assumed too that they just made them all with 5 holes just in case (25% more revealing!). the only one i could find that uses all five is right around her belly button. could definitely be "recycled".

    sorry - i couldn't help myself with the title. i just thought this dress was interesting. i don't know what those "scales" are - they look like heavy paper, or why they all have five holes when nearly all of them only use four. but it's interesting!

    Types of Material

    kind of a side comment, but i would love an out-of-the-box welding set up that would weld 20ga-16ga titanium reliably (that doesn't cost thousands of dollars). i'm sure it can be pieced together, but i'm no electrical (mechanical? industrial?) engineer and don't have the time to invest on researching it. years ago i tried the chinese one that tlr carried, and i could never dial in reliable power settings. it eventually just stopped working (surprise surprise), and i just threw out that $200.

    WTB micromaille wedding rings

    perhaps you know already, but 24ga gold or silver would have to be soldered and would still misform relatively quickly. i use 20ga titanium and still assume i'll need to re-make it every couple years.

    New to this looking for pointers

    "move" in what way? when you're wearing armor or jewelry, it feels almost like aluminum. weaving is like spring steel.

    it's (obviously) entirely up to you, but personally i've given up on the idea that if i'm not making my own rings, i'm not a true mailler. (the fact that i'm usually doing titanium is probably another factor.) i don't mine or smelt the ore, i don't mix the alloy or draw the wire; so if someone else has the knowledge, tools, and processes to make the rings much more efficiently than me, i'm willing to pay for it. just my 2 cents.

    Titanium - Anodized and Plain

    is TI16516NoColor restocking too with the saw-cut? my commission just "officially" fell through that i emailed you guys about late last year (surprise, surprise), but i wouldn't mind getting a little to restock my personal supply (and am working on an order...)

    4 in 1 Belt

    i don't have direct access to it right now, but here's a close-up of the original image where all the weaves come together. i did the hp3-1 first and added the euro4-1 after, but it wouldn't be too terribly complicated to do the reverse, if you're good with persian weaves.

    4 in 1 Belt

    in my experience (with titanium) 18g 1/4" hp3-1 lines up pretty well with 18g 3/16" euro4-1. the blue edging on this halter is HP3-1 and the rest is euro4-1:

    Titanium - Anodized and Plain

    i'm got a preliminary commission for a titanium chainmail shirt in 16ga 5/16" id links. i'm going to need about 31,000 links (155 bags) of machine cut links, and i'd like them all from the same batch, so i'm not dealing with shiny/matte issues with the titanium wire. how should i move forward?

    Forum dying

    i second that, rob. people were posting my stuff on the facebook group (usually half-crediting me, but that's a different discussion) so i thought i should join to respond to questions, etc., but i quickly had to turn it off because it was just a newsfeed headache. i'd rather frequent a well-organized forum like we've got here, where i don't have to sift through a hundred images to maybe find one interesting post.
