PostForum: Weaves Discussion   Posted: Thu Sep 17, 2009 9:13 pm   Subject: HP 3in1 on edge of E 4in1????
I have seen several bracelets that look like regular E4-1 (or E6-1?), but seem to be edged in HP 3-1. Anyone know the weave name or combination, or a thread or tut? Thanks!!!

I use the Blue Moon stuff too, although I make sure I'm getting the metal stuff, not the plastic that's made to look like metal (weird, I know). One of my best selling bracelets is finished with thei ...

I already wear glasses - lined bifocals! Nice at my age. Would you mind telling me what media you'd use to pre-tumble the saw cut rings? Kodiak gives great advice, although I'm hoping I could use s ...

My TRL 20g 1/8 saw cut rings came in, and upon putting together my first bracelet (and now in some shoulder pain), I'm very disappointed in the snag of the rings! I worked each link as level and flus ...

I should probably have said before that I worked at this gift shop for a short while, so I actually sold stuff to their customers. Things priced at around $30-35 sold fast, anything higher, not so mu ...
