I got ahold of some rose gold-filled wire before the price went nutso crazy. So I made this.





JPL7 Bracelet using 18awg/7.0mm rings in yellow and rose gold-filled and sterling silver. I thought it deserved a special clasp so I went digging into my stash and decided on this box clasp with a freshwater pearl.

Oooo Shiny!... I like shiny.. =)


Reality is the leading cause of stress for those in touch with it.

Its an inescapable fact, that despite that a ring is an average of 10 times as wide as it is thick, if you drop one it will almost always fall on edge and roll away from you....

Very nice, love the tri-color. Also, how much harder is JPL7 than 5? I still havent gotten around to it and this is just the inspiration i needed. Very Happy

Funny you should ask Master Solotov. I just so happened to have written a tutorial for JPL5 and JPL7. Very Happy

Surprised

beautiful...something I doubt I'll ever get to play with...gold in any form.

If it hadn't been for Kodiak's secret santa last year I would never have played with silver.


So i truly admire those who can work in it, and who make it as beautiful, timeless as your piece here.

Has a very desert-like presence with the colours and the way they blend.

JPL's are quite strong and even with the large ID, I'm not worried at all about the strength of this one.

Onering: Note, that a JPL7 is, despite the fact that AR~7 rings are used, also a 12-in-1 weave; and that gives a sturdiness you might be astonished about. Same is valid for JPL5, that is an 8-in-1 weave made from AR~5 rings. And I know that you have experience with standard JPL3 (AR~3, 4in1) and its sturdiness. And extrapolating that in the other direction (JPL9, 11, and so on) gives an AR increase of around 2 per step, but an increase by 4 of the 'n-in-1' number. So expect, that in principle ANY member of JPL weave family is fairly strong - much sturdier than the used rings' AR lets you expect - as long as you dont make mistakes when weaving it...

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

Impressive. I just talked to someone today about Jens Pind at an art festival. I mentioned the maille artisans and they had no idea it existed. Also they didn't know there was a Jens Pind 5 and 7 either. I told them they should check this website out.
