Problems with JPL 3 in AA

Recommended Posts

I picked up some 20 ga 3/32 black ice rings to make a JPL3 necklace, and I found that the AR on it was too big.  TRL lists the AR on the rings as 3, so I thought they would work pretty well.  The rings were way too loose, and were slipping out of location a lot.  I knew that AA wire was a bit thinner, but that was huge.

 

Has anyone made JPL3 out of these rings?

The technique making the "new" colors also make the gauge slightly thinner.

Not by a lot, but when it comes to very AR sensitive weaves like JPL, enough to make a difference. I have all colors in that size and only one or two of them is still possible to make JPL with, all the others have changed enough to make the weave too loose.

The old colors work, but I think only yellow and orange is left of them.
