As far as I know, this European 4in1 weave is the simplest way to do it. Though making a bracelet like this would need to have very small rings so it is not too thick, and so you can fit all the letters on it that you need. I think best gauge would be 22g - 20g. I don't know if you know what AR is, but the best AR for Euro 4in1 inlays is about 4.0 . For 22g, 4.0AR uses 3/32" (ID) Inter Diameter rings. And 20g, 4.0AR uses 1/8" ID rings.

Actually, that bracelet's European 6 in 1. I can't find the wire I used right now but I'm pretty sure it was no thicker than 22ga.
E6-1 needs a pretty big AR though, making the rings weak (especially in this wire thickness); E4-1 would be easier and stronger. Trinity is also nice to make inlays in, and can be done with an AR of only 3 so it's even stronger. A lot harder to weave, though, since it curls up.

I'm searching for someone on here that can create small bracelets with two colors and have eight letters into them for a group of people in an organization, that aren't too costly, if it takes time to make them, its okay.

Please post a thread in the trading room with the topic:

Ahh, 6in1, Yes I have used that for inlays before as well. The good thing about 6in1, is it had less "holes".

Are you willing to make many bracelets the way you explained, BigTitann?

As I said before. Please make a post in the Trading Room forum.

Also, please follow the rules regarding negitiation. Specifically #3:
Trading Room Rules wrote:
3. Negotiations should take place outside of the thread.
If there is bartering/haggling/negotiating going on, it is to be taken to the Private Message function or to be conducted via email. Please be sure to include in your thread a way to reach you and your preferred method of discussion.
Questions about an item are allowed. Example; Asking what wire size the rings are if it wasn't mentioned in the original post is acceptable. Asking leading questions such as "will you take this laptop and $50 in trade?" are not.


I am now locking this thread, in the hopes that you follow my advice, and post a 'Want to Buy' thead in the Trading Room.
