European 4-1 w/ HP3-1 edging
« on: April 22, 2009, 10:09:55 AM »
Finally got this done with a little help from a friend..........Lorraine.





It's 1-1/2" in width. Used 20g 2.75mm and 20g 3.25mm to make it.

Thank you, I really enjoyed this one even though I did throw my pliers once!

How long did it take you to finish this piece?

Boy,  not counting the 'breaks' to keep my sanity, the plier throwing episodes, hmmm, I'm going to guess and say about 8 hours.

That's stunning!

Whenever I have done Euro 4 in 1 I have never been happy with the edges, that is such a great finish!

Ooh, I LOOOOOVE this!  I want to put a HP edge on my maille shirt.  I'm using 14 SWG 3/8" rings for the shirt... do you use the same size for the edging?

Yay!  I'm glad it finally worked out for you. And only one plier-throwing incident.  Not bad.  ;)  (I feel partially responsible for the frustration, since, if I remember correctly, I did totally forget to tell you about the edging being a different size or something)

So, yes, answering the last question - two different sizes are used. The larger of the two sizes she listed were used for the edging. 

The bracelet is stunning. Great job!
