Haffina-Is the first piece a necklace or bracelet? And tradewinds is a weave?

What size rings do you use for JPL? I got some, from The Ring Lord, that they said would be the perfect size for Jens Pind, but believe me, more than tight, they were knuckle skinners. I think the ones I ordered were 18ga, 1/8"ID.

The first is a bracelet, and yes Trade Winds is a weave..a cross between 4 Winds and Vipera Berus I believe.
The JPL in the earrings are BA 20g 2.50mm - I actually contacted my supplier about them because they were really tight..not so tight I couldnt weave it, but tight enough that those earrings are rigid.. they wouldnt work for a bracelet. They should have been perfect, which suggests there may have been a mistake made when they were coiled.

Your rings should have been ok... but it could have been a bad batch..which is what I think was the case with the ones I got.

Edit: I just used my digital calipers to measure the rings and found out that the wire was .95mm instead of .8mm... with an ID of about 2.61mm.. meaning the AR was 2.74 and kind of explains why I had difficulty weaving it LOL

All your new creations are beautiful. I especially like the ones with the seed beads ... that's gorgeous.
