    Dragonscale with square rings

    Yep. I did it in 16g 3/8 and 18g 1/4 square AA... I think. I'll go look but I'm pretty sure those were the sizes. It was really cool looking.

    The new Tronex Pliers

    I bought 2 pairs of the new Tronex pliers and got them a couple days ago. I never thought I'd leave my Lindstroms as my every day pliers, but I'm seriously considering it. The Tronex pliers are awesome. I don't usually do a lot in stainless, but so far with these new pliers I've made 2 bracelets in 16g stainless. Also, I'm working on scale epaulettes (with stainless rings) for an order and using the Tronex pliers for that. I think what I really like about them is the jaw (which, coincidentally, is the reason I love my Lindstroms - as well as the spring in them). It's wide, but not obnoxious; but specifically they have a "low profile" jaw, so it's really thin at the tips. That's something I've not found in other wide nose pliers I have. The thinness gives the ability to get into some pretty tight places. Big bonus for me is that I can use these with larger rings and avoid the lovely finger gouging that comes with ring slippage. Hasn't happened once, and I've been doing a lot of mailling the past few days. Anyway, just thought I'd give my 2 rings on these really nice new pliers. They're worth the investment. Has anyone else tried them yet?

    Small scale flowers

    Depends on how long it takes you to make one and how much you want for your time. Your question is difficult since we all charge something different for our time. It would be materials cost (including your shipping cost) plus your time plus shipping to them. If you aren't sure, go a little high so you have wiggle room if your customer balks at your price. Have a price that you won't go under, though.

    Pammy, the bras that I make, which are the tutorial that TRL sells, can support very large busted women. In fact, the lady I used for a model in that tutorial was a DD. They should support exactly (if not better and more comfortably) like a regular bra.

    Dragons Back

    Dragonback is the name of a weave. If you scroll up a bit, I think someone included a link to a tutorial.

    Scale Maille Bra Tutorial - Tips for connecting the two pieces??

    I love that stuff, but I can't find it anymore. It's really nice b/c it has a teeny bit of stretch to it, is easy to tie and doesn't tend to come undone.

    Scale Maille Bra Tutorial - Tips for connecting the two pieces??

    The bra looks great! The rings were probably 16g 3/8 or so, but I'd probably go with 14g or double the 16g rings, just to make sure they don't pull apart (unless you're using stainless, then prob not an issue). ETA: I've used rings as small as 16g 1/4", so it really depends on what width of string/leather/ribbon you're using to tie it on.

    Pammy, bottoms are pretty easy, especially if it's a thong. It's basically a triangle in the front, the thong part and then a little triangle in the back. I've done all metal and combo rubber/metal; I've not had a complaint about hair pulling. The metal warms pretty quickly to body temp, so the cold on the lady parts shouldn't be too much of an issue, or they can take a hair dryer to the piece before putting it on. I take EXTRA special care on bottoms to make sure my closures are flush and always use saw cut rings. Also, I do the thong portion in 18g 1/8 saw cut stainless because that's the part that gets the most pulling; something else I do is put a couple links of doubled epdm rings in the thong portion. People stretch and move and we don't want them getting rope burn! A bottom with a back is a bit more difficult (at least as I've planned), and something I've been working on a design for since I had someone request one. I have ideas, but I haven't fleshed them out completely yet. I know someone here has done a full back bottom, but I think it was in Dragonscale. I looked for the post the other day and couldn't find it, but I found one on deviantArt (not the one I was looking for). I just looked on dA and found a full back bottom that was basically a large triangle. I'm just not sure how fitted that would be. Like I said, I have to play around with the ideas yet. ETA: request access to the adult forum and we can answer questions more in detail over there.

    Oh! I meant to say that I really like the belt loops too.

    Help identify this weave, please?

    Hi everyone! Can anyone id this weave? I have found a few that it is similar to, but nothing exact. I'd like to know what it is...I made it today, and I'm sure it's had to have been made before me, so any help id'ing it is appreciated.
