Couple Bracelets
« on: April 16, 2009, 04:09:52 PM »
Well, one of my current assignments in my sculpture class is an obsessive object assignment.  I decided to see how many different chainmaille bracelets I could make by the end of the semester using as many weaves and weave combinations as I can.  I just recently finished two more bracelets for this assignment (joining the Dragonscale bracelet I made earlier) and thought I'd post some pics.



 Euro 4-1 on the Bias bracelet with 3.25mm ID sterling silver, brown EC, and seafoam EC rings.




Celtic Spike bracelet with:

18ga 4.5mm ID copper rings
20ga 3.5mm ID peridot enameled copper rings
20ga 3mm ID seafoam enameled copper rings
20ga 2mm ID copper rings

Now that would be an assignment I could get into...unlike my current assignments.

Lovely bracelets.  What does on the bias mean?  I love the look of this.

looking at this makes me want to pull my hair out....how long does it take to learn to do something so intricate?  i'm still going to pursue it, but it seems so complicated, by the way your bracelets are ferocious

Thank you!  On the bias, simply refers to the orientation of the weave.  The weave is European 4-1, but it's made at a slant.

@Kldezines: Thank you! Actually, not all of the chainmaille weaves are as hard as they look.  Some weaves are really rather easy to learn while others are not.  There are some great tutorials of chainmaille weaves over at Maille Artisans and CGMaille.

Thank you for explaining the term on the bias.  It gives me all sorts of ideas on ways to do bracelets.

Very cool!  I've never seen the Celtic Spikes in color before; it looks great.   :)

REally really like the Euro one! 
Wow - this stuff is just so amazing - all those rings - I've looked at the patterns, and I almost cross eyed!  Have fun making your projects!
