Hi

This is a fantastic website, however things dont mean that much too me Confused

I really want to start making 'chains' to attach Art Clay 'bits' I make. The weaves look great, difficult, but great. Could someone PLEASE let me know which is the best weave to start with? What AR means? and any other help they think will keep me going (apart from bottles of wine)

I really hope someone can help.

I'm going to move this to the main discussion, so folks will see it.

I'm also going to answer your questions indirectly, by pointing you at some resources.
First, for definitions of terms, check out our glossary. Next, for answers to basic questions, try our Frequently Asked Questions. Finally, for loads of ideas on where to start, visit our Articles section, and follow the link for "Beginners".

Agreed, the articles section is your friend. Do you have your first rings yet, and some pliers I hope? Once you got that far, learning to open and most importantly close rings properly and consistantly should be your goal while you're working on your first patch.

I do recommend E4-1 to start with as well. It's hard to describe exactly why, but when I look back on doing my first e4-1 patch I realize now I learned alot about the weaving aspect of the craft while I did it.

Also, have you read the disclaimer yet?

Thanks for getting back to me Wink

Got the boring task of work today, but then later will look at all the links and information.

Because I've done bits of jewellery before I've got some silver plated rings I wanted to practice with and pliers.

Many thanks again for all the advice Uber

Will be back.

Tawny
