Jewelry / More New Stuff (many pics)
« on: September 14, 2010, 02:18:05 PM »
I've been playing around with non-standard rings again  ;D!  Some of the rings in these pieces are twisting rings, while others are rings out of hammered wire. I hammered some wire for another (non-chainmaille) project (also in this post) and had some left over and just started experimenting with it.

I hadn't posted anything in a while so I thought I'd post some of what I've been up to.



These earrings were made as a graduation gift for one of my cousins. They are sterling silver, black enameled copper, and black onyx.

This bracelet combines soldering and chainmaille. The long links are rings that were soldered closed, re-shaped, and hammered. The weave used is Barrel.

I made this for my costume for the AuGre Pirate Festival. I was originally going to wear a tricorn hat, but the one I bought turned out to not be what the seller had pictured and wasn't going to work. So instead I made some wire and feather hair jewellery.

Jewelry / Learned something new
« on: July 05, 2010, 02:00:00 PM »
Lately I've been trying to learn soldering so that when I (finally) apply for my BFA program I'll be able to put something in my art portfolio that isn't just chainmaille.  As well as, simply trying to get as much of a head-start on learning some of the techniques I'm going to have to use in my classes so that when I get to using them later they won't give me as much trouble.

This is my most recent project and first time trying to solder.  It's a combination of wire-smithing and chainmaille (micromaille). The setting is handmade. The necklace is sterling silver and carnelian.

General Discussion / Another site using images that aren't theirs
« on: April 17, 2010, 03:39:25 PM »
This was posted about on MWW, MAIL, and TRL as well and I thought it should probably be posted here also.

http://suzanne.net.au/craft_chainmaille_weaves.html

This site is using images which are not theirs.  Some are being linked to while others are being hosted on their site.  They have listed exactly where each image came from and whose it is, but I know they did not ask permission to use any of them as there are a great many of mine on that site and I never received any communications from them.

You may also want to search through the other pages of the site as there might be more stuff scattered throughout it as it has more than just jewelry and chainmaille shown there and what is there is not all in the same spot.

Legba found some e-mails for the site owner as apparently the contact button doesn't seem to be working. Here are the e-mails she found:

suedavis3@lycos.com
suedebyga@gmail.com

Legba, thinks the second e-mail is most likely to be the valid one.

The necklace is made from a scavenged pendant and two scavenged chains.




Necklace is made from links from a very old bracelet (late 1890's early 1900's) that was, unfortunately, broken. All parts of this necklace are salvaged pieces from other broken jewelry. Made this for a pirate festival I'm going to be vending at this summer.

Art / Strange Digital Photography (pic heavy)
« on: March 06, 2010, 03:50:53 PM »
I've been doing a lot of weird digital photography experiments lately and thought I'd post a some of them (I have way too many to post here; the rest are in the photography section of my secondary Deviant Art account.) .































The first five photographs were taken with the flash on, the camera set to "candle", and me moving the camera all over the place.  The rest of the pics were taken with the flash on and a glass river rock put in front of the lense.  For all the pics the camera was focused on a work-in-progress painting experiment of mine that has glass river rocks secured to it.  The only alterations done to the pics were just regular photo touch-ups to the exposure (brightness, contrast, shadows, highlights, etc.)

Art / First Chainmaille Sculpture Attempt (pic heavy)
« on: January 06, 2010, 01:56:47 PM »
I hadn't yet tried to make a chainmaille sculpture so I wanted to give it a try. I'm not completely certain why I decided to make it a hornet though. I was originally going to make a bracelet out of diamond shaped segments of Dragonscale, but that idea didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to and after playing around with the segments, well this is what it turned into. The sculpture is about 4 or 4.5 inches long.
