  1. I can do that if you want me to Paula. Let me know how you would like them to look (if I should copy straight from your site or something different, email me maybe). And thanks for the sweet little unit, they've had a lot of attention at the show I did yesterday.

  2. Note: it looks like there's a slightly open ring at 10 o'clock on the GFD bracelet.

    Yeah I know, I only see these things after I take a pic (maybe my eyesight is finally failing).

    Bernice - the copper Triangle is solid, doesn't move at all and is so tight it's in danger of pulling itself apart (however it hasn't done so yet). The silver one (without bead) is a little looser but still doesn't move much. The one with the bead has some extra rings at the corners to hold it in the convex shape so that one doesn't move either but isn't totally solid.

    The iron spiral is something I made on the blacksmithing course I did last year. The guy running the classes can knock then out in 10 minutes but it took me nearly an hour to make mine!

  3. .....a unit weave by paula and has been in the weaves library on MAIL for as long as I can remember.

    It's tricky to get the ring sizes just right, very easy to have it so tight it pulls itself apart or just that little bit too loose that it doesn't quite hold it's shape.

    I tried it out in copper first, 1.2mm wire 7mm & 6mm ID and 1mm wire 4mm ID.


    Then I tried it in sterling silver 1mm wire 6mm & 5mm ID, 0.8mm wire 4mm & 3mm ID. This is standing up on some Strangemaille.


    The silver in those sizes has a habit of curving so I added a couple more rings here and there to hold it convex and a ruby bead.


    Also I stumbled upon a HP3in1 variant that wasn't in the library.

    I've called it GFD (Grounds For Divorce). 1.2mm copper wire 6mm ID.


  4. My husband actually told me these!


    How are husbands like lawn mowers?

    They're hard to get started, they emit noxious odors, and half the time they don't work.


    How can you tell when a man is well hung?

    When you can just barely slip your finger between his neck and the noose.


    Why do little boys whine?

    They are practicing to be men.
