    Padded work gloves for maileing

    I'm mainly using the crap beading pliers I got when I was helping Mom with her beading. I have a few low end modded pliers from some place... (Dad got a set for Mom, and they had teeth.. no use to her, after modded useful to me.(filed the teeth off at the tips, left the rest on for st st.)) I need to invest in some good pliers, as they really hurt me after a prolonged period of mailling. I use my hands all day at work, scrubbing things, and moving tables, so I need to adjust to my new pain level. It's not my palms though, it's the joint of my thumb, on my dominant hand. I bought padded bike gloves, then promptly mis-placed them.

    You might be a mailler if...

    Ybami: You made scale flower hair clips and used them to decorate your present at your cousins baby shower. Also, if you got dirty looks and rude comments for working on a bracelet during said shower. I woke up with an aa scale stuck to my behind today, so I guess I now qualify as a real mailler.

    You might be a mailler if...

    Ymbami or femailler when: at the first all employee meeting at your new job they ask you to say your name and something not everyone would know about you (mistake) and your answer is "My name is Chelle (sub your name here), and if you want a chain maille bracelet, see me after the meeting." She let me post business cards on the safety board. If you are carrying a work in progress in your purse, and it's a bracer. If you started carrying a purse, cause you ran out of room in your pants. If you don't mind the hour and a half bus commute to work (each way) cause you can make things while traveling. If you spend very little time on maille on the bus cause the other folks want to see what you are doing, so you started wearing head phones with the end in your pocket so you can pretend you don't hear them. (If they ask more than once, I let them hold it, then hand a card out. However I have a feeling most bus riders in my town are broke.) If you spend your day off making small maille pieces at the other half's tattoo shop (ok so he's an apprentice) cause they have cash and like different things. Edit... I read it all, and missed the one about your cats sitting on your progress because you are ignoring them.

    Clasps!

    I'm a chick that has no theater or nautical history, and I like the d-shackle/clevis clasps... I happen to like large pieces though. I have no gallery entries here because I haven't quite figured out how to post them, and am waiting for something truly inspiring to be finished. It's my first "Real" armor project, so it may be a while.
  7. :D I got to use my wire and manderals tonight... not as many screw ups as I expected... Of course I did start with copper ...
  8. Had a lousy day at work, got home to find my oreder sitting on my front steps.... That made it better.

    New Colors of Anodized Aluminum

    I hope I get the money for saw cut aa1814th turquoise before it's out... ran a little short on my estimated rings.

    Forum Upgrade

    On clean cut dark, with my recently updated, force refreshed Firefox, the gallery photos fail to appear about 1/3rd of the time. Also the M in forum on the icon to return to home page is chopped short.

    Humorous. Do you get the reference?

    Don Quixote to the rescue!!

    Starting a shop

    I don't maille as often as I would like, and I think it's my lack of work space. I have a tiny apartment, and the 2 people that live here (me and the other half) both own way too much crap. One day, I'd like to have a room to work in. First things first, I need the income to get there. slightly off topic, but good luck to you.

    Giving Advice

    I'm not afraid to post... Here. There is one site that confuses me to no end, and I rarely post there because of the way I saw veteran maillers being treated. Honestly, I'm not what I would call stupid, but I have a host of learning development issues that I would rather not get into here, and sometimes, google only confuses me. It's the abundance of information flooding in at one time... I just get buried. I have to actually have an idea of what I'm looking for specifically, like when I started trying to make smaller scale maille pieces. I end up feeling like I'm in an advertisement for Bing. Last time I was having an issue with something I wanted to do, I was told to do the math and figure out which ar's I'd need.(admittedly this was chatting live with someone, and I was too embarrassed to say anything) Which would work, if math wasn't where my biggest learning issues are. it's kinda silly, a person that makes maille and can't do math without examples of the equations to look at.

    Better..

    the last few times I ordered, I was sad.. I'd gone up to saw cut rings, and the 16g steel was sometimes brittle and would snap easily, and the next time my 18g copper rings were all burrs. But I know that accidents happen, and the brittleness was rare, and well, burrs can be removed. I'm happy, no, thrilled to report that everything was absolutely as expected this time. Thank you all for a job well done.

    metalhead and/or goth + copper

    So what does it say that my favorite metals are stainless and copper, and that I haven't worked in smaller that 16-18-20 in ages? I'm most definitely not a guy.

    Please, everyone.

    Couldn't recall the word, and was too drunk to look it up. Thanks for the reminder.

    metalhead and/or goth + copper

    I like copper and steel, and could be said to fall into two out of three of those categories, depending on who you ask.

    Please, everyone.

    I used to work in a fast food place, and I remember one manager quite clearly for his horrible notes. One day he wrote out a list of cleaning chores for me, and number 2 was "go in2 the loby and wipe down al base broads". He didn't get it when I asked him how to identify the base broads, and if he thought they might get offended.

    Chainmail and weed

    I wouldn't be in a position to discuss that , Hypothetical or otherwise. I find that having a mixed drink and nursing one or two drinks over the course of a night makes it go a little faster. I actually seem to focus more on details when slightly intoxicated, and I can admit it makes any muscle pain disappear. Though, I stress the no power tools thing.

    Pre-closed rings in trade for raw rings

    I'd do it, but you should look at my dA to see if you consider my work up to par. Look up Nevarsong.

    Please, everyone.

    Spell check is my hero. I'm dyslexic and dysgraphic, and it acts up something awful when I'm tired. My hand writing is illegible, so I type every thing. If spell check can help me, there is no excuse for the rest of the world. Of course, that doesn't do much for grammar or sound alikes.
