    Moving Sale! (pt 1)

    Thank you to those who have purchased things. I will be updating my lists in the near future. (O5-1 balls gone, some of the earrings gone, about half of the byz bracelets gone, and a few other things.) I still need the rest sold. Make offers!

    Temporary fix for the broken photos: http://midknightmailler.com/foreclosure.htm None of the text is on there, but all of the photos work.

    Moving Sale! (pt 1)

    It finally happened. The house was foreclosed on and I had to move to a smaller place. I'm trying to cover some expenses and also declutter; perhaps you can help out! I'll ship using flat rate boxes, and if you purchase over $200, I'll cover the cost. Scale earrings $2.50/pair (small scales and AA18316 with the old nickle free surgical stainless findings) shaggy loops, cross, byzantine and full persian earrings $2.50/pair (AA18316 and 1814, cross also has AA2018, same surgical stainless as above) (top row) Oriental 6-1 earrings (sterling findings, cu20316, ec20764), Sterling byz/shaggy (sterling 2018, sterling findings), shaggy loops (sterling findings, ec20764) $7.50/pair (middle row) ec byzantine earrings (ec20764, sterling findings) and cu byz/fp earrings (sterling findings, 2018/20316) $5.00/pair (bottom row) misc stainless and AA earrings (all stainless findings) $4.00/pair Stainless steel bracelets $12.50/ea http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20006.jpg AA18316 byzantine bracelets $7.50/ea http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20008.jpg AA1814 full persian bracelets $7.50/ea http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20009.jpg Small pouches (AB1438 some with AA1438 trim) $10/ea http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20010.jpg Large pouches (AB1438 some with AA1438 trim) $20/ea http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20012.jpg Oriental 5-1 balls (AB1438 with AA1438 cores) $10/3 of a color http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20011.jpg Stainless Steel 14g byzantine 24" wallet chains $20/ea (have 4, 3 pictured) http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20014.jpg Wrapped marble keychains (AB1614, regular keychain ring) $2/ea (I count 48 keychains) http://midknightmailler.com/maille%20015.jpg I'm selling these well below my normal prices, because I know selling maille to maillers is rough. Rough times can do that... This is part 1. I should have part 2 up in a few days, but the items are still packed away in boxes. Part 2 will also have rings and findings and such. I've been mailling for 13 years, so this is really tough to do, but I need the space (and money), and they need to go! PM any questions, I'll try to keep things up to date.

    Making a permanent bracelet.

    I have an anklet, hp4-1 18g 1/4" Stainless, that's permy. I've had it on for at least 6 years, perhaps longer? I made sure I could stick two fingers comfortably between it and my ankle, but it's not really floppy enough to catch on anything, either. Haven't had any problems, aside from one cotton sock that decided to tangle on a ring closure... (6 years is a long time, with no upkeep...)
  7. Just broke another set of pliers. They were my primaries since 2000, and the other pair broke about 18 months ago. I still have spares (whew!), but I'm in the market again...

      To clear up my slightly inebriated explanation, not the kobalt pliers, but Knipex. And the chain nose seem a bit more likely. Now to just find the $100 for 2 pliers and shipping...

      My favorite pliers broke recently. The jaw sheared off. Luckily the manufacturer stands behind their product and sent me 2 new pairs. I'm soooo happy. Losing a good set of pliers is...sigh...difficult.

    Style points, Pattern Combinations!

    I made a short-sleeve shirt of maille with 10 or so different weaves. Thing about it was the length time to connect them properly. Probably close to 250 hours went into it. Sure, it looks amazing, but there's no way I'd ever be able to sell it. ((250*wage+materials)*overhead)
  9. I ordered 40lbs of bright aluminum 14g wire instead of pre-cut rings for one reason. I don't have a job, college begins in a few months, and I don't have anything better to do. (also taking hourly photos, so it LOOKS more interesting and time consuming ) On any other project or in any other situation, I agree that purchasing pre-cut is the smartest option. (And the money saved/paid to me in 'slave-labor' can get me a 'decent' computer)

    My first maille! (PICS)

    Congratulations on getting hooked! Closures look fine for just starting out, and you already know that's one of the major points to work on. Getting late, so I'll just leave it at that, and wait eagerly for more pictures as you continue practicing.

    WTS: Pre-made items at wholesale prices

    Updated to show the newly sold items. Everything else on the list is still available.
  13. I have four toolboxes full of rings, and no idea on what to make.

      well, perhaps a toolbox out of rings, for storing your rings. :P

      honestly though, it sucks when you run out of ideas.

    WTS: Pre-made items at wholesale prices

    I've had some interest, and I've sold a few items. I made a full inventory with my original retail prices of the remaining items.
