ok, 'fluff' is the wrong term I guess. My point is that if you had an infinitely large sheet of both of these weaves, they are the same thing, the connections pass exactly through their respective rin ...

right, spin that top image 180degrees, you end up with the same weave and lean, and it still fits into what I said

Hey all, so I fell in love with Crotalus after seeing GawthFrawg's necklace. I began researching it and examining the piece I was making. I looked at legba's tut and thought about other ways that the ...

ok here's the pictures I promised. The only difference between crotalus chain and crotalus sheet is of course that you extend the rings connecting into one another width wise rather than lengthwise.

one bit of advice from my travels in the past year. If you check your rings, make sure they're in a container where they wont get mixed up at all. Even if the container isn't bouncing around inside th ...

full persians start at 6-in-1 and are kind of round/square in cross section, half persians are relatively flat starting from 3-in-1 and on. The reason (I assume) full persian is 'full' is because it's ...
