I'm going to have to think of a better post title for here on out. "Even more more chain maille" doesn't have a good ring to it.
The items I have to show you today are all tutorials from Brilliant Twisted Skulls on etsy.
First, I have the Raven's Braid. The rings I had for the middle were the correct size according to the tutorial, but were slightly too thick. I had to go one gauge smaller to make it work.
I love how it turned out! It just goes to show that, for some weaves, different vendors and different metal types make a difference.
This is the only piece that I patinaed. The others are waiting for me to get a few more pieces together.
Next up is the wyvern back weave.
I had done something similar, but I love the doubled persian rings on the edges. This one used smaller rings and is light and delicate. I might have to sit down and see if I could do it in a heavier gauge and bigger rings.
Finally, I have a few atomic beads. These little guys are adorable, but a pain in the you-know-what. I must have put the bead down a number of times before "getting it".
The beads start out with a mobius, then, somewhere, there is chain maille magic that I can't even begin to explain. I have no idea how Kirk came up with it, much less explained it.
You can tell these little guys have been sitting around for a while. The copper has dulled. I really need to get them cleaned up, dunked in liver of sulphur and tumbled.
Brilliant Twisted Skulls has quite a few tutorials in the store. If you like these, check it out.
