    Weaves you DON'T like?

    I love the look of Roundmaille (or Snake). Its very easy with large rings (14g3/8"). Right now I'm doing it in AA purple/green 18g5/32" for a wedding gift. It is beautiful. The part that REALLY SUCKS is putting the closing ring in. It's hard to get the pliers in to hold it and most of the time the ring slips and I end up scratching it. Good thing they are small rings and the tightness of the weave kind of hides most of it.

    I am making a box from 12g .228id sxaa ultra low aspect ratio rings in 4-in-1 cube weave. Its fun & looks great but hard to do with such small thick rings. As for shaggy loops not being a weave. I put it up there with the Pluto debate. Is it or is it not a planet? I believe it is. A word of caution. It really hurts when you get your finger between the wire and the mandrel when coiling your own wire, lol. OWWW!!! I did it this morning. 14g galv steel.

    The triplicates are easy to finish off as long as you make it long enough to go over your head. I have not made one shorter than that yet but it does look like a pain to make it shorter.

    Roundmail/snake looks great with my 16g 3/8 gs rings, its huge but looks cool. I had a guy at a car show 3 weeks ago buy it from me cause he liked it so much. I found that I hate doing scales with the split rings, they suck and are a pain in the butt!!! Still love byz, it just seems to take forever to get anywhere fast with it.

    Captive inverted roundmail sucks. I love the finished product but making just plain sucks!

    To Jax25. To start HP-4in1 make a piece of E4in1 2 wide by 4 long to hold your first 4 rings together and just take the 4 bottom rings and 3 middle rings out after.

    I could not have said that better bikepartjewelry. Prepping IS the worst part. I sit in my chair and have my laptop in front of me, to my right is my maille table and in between is my 40"lcd and Blu-ray player. Without those maille work would drive me absolutely nutso!!!

    I like the way byz looks with 18g5/32" ring but it such a pain. You seem to work forever and not get anywhere. I'm starting to get tired of full Persian too as I have done so many of them. I have not explored many of the more intense weaves YET. Candy cane rope is the most complex I've done so far. It was actually quite easy, just hard on the eyes and easy to screw up.

    Extension Chain

    Awesome idea. This would be great for ceiling fan chains.
