Just finished these a few days ago, and I'm wondering what people think of them.

Made from 20ga 1/8" AA.

I was going to sell them, but for as much work as they took, I can't find a reasonable price.

Very nice. I do like the color combination as well.

I'd say maybe price them about $25-30, depending on time spent making them. I'd imagine you cranked these out in under an hour, correct?

Had I been fully paying attention, I think an hour would do it for making them again. However I killed a lot of time making sure they were each the same length, as I forgot to count the rings out before I started on them.

Is that a basic spiral weave that's been "locked" in place by just adding more rings? Or am I missing something?

Unless I did something weird without noticing while making it, that's exactly what it is.

Very, nice work, Zncon!

I agree with NetStormer. I wouldn't price them less than $25-$30.

What you made is basically Shaggy Spiral, and by adding in the shaggy rings you've locked the spiral in place.

Nice work Zncon. Im gonna have to try this patter now, perhaps as a charm bracelet or something. I started as a strictly armor guy, but you fine folks keep inspiring me to try different jewelry applications Coif Smiley
