"Bubbles", "Roosa" or something else?

I found this weave a while back, but I forget where. I thought it was called "Bubbles". However, I have seen it recently in a few different places online (usually with beads) as Roosa.

Here is a bracelet I made without beads -



Here is a pair of earrings I made yesterday with beads -



It is constructed similar to Back to Work, but without the ring in the back.

So what would you call it? Roosa, Bubbles, or a Back to Work variation ... or something else?

Yes, I thought it looked very like Back to Work.

Certainly not Bubbles, because there's already a weave here called Bubble Chain.
Probably simplest to call it a variation of Back to Work.

Looks like Back to Work with the back of the sandwich rings left off. Which to me looks like units of Celtic Visions joined sideways without the cross rings.

Looking at Long Canyon's website, what they call Bubbles is what you have made. Roosa is slightly different because the connections on each side of the celtic unit are not joined the same. One side is joined Celtic Visions-style and the other side is just joined to the middle ring of the unit. Bubbles looks like a more elaborate way of adding connector rings. Reminds me of Eye Period Exclamationmark and Eye Period Questionmark.

Ah - I see how the rings are connected differently on the "Roosa" on Long Canyon's site now. The Bubbles one on there does look like what I made. Maybe that is where I saw it before.

I have never seen the Eye Period ones you mentioned Lorraine. I will have to look at those.

Yeah, I didn't even remember we had Bubble Chain. Bubbles is definitely not Bubble Chain.

Because there's no "official" names for any of them. Sure, the names that are in the M.A.I.L. database are used by us here, but outside of this site... anything goes. At least there do exist weaves that most people do agree on the names of, such as "European 4 in 1".

The maille community is lucky compared to the crochet community, who can't even agree on the names for the basic crochet stitches: there are two completely incompatible naming conventions, both of which use the same name for different stitches. Ask someone on one side of the Atlantic what "single crochet" or "double crochet" are, and you get a different answer from someone on the other side of the Atlantic. Ask someone what "moss stitch" or "grit stitch" or "V stitch" are, and you'll get different answers too.

One just has to live with it.

Sometimes people are naming their design instead of the weave and when someone else makes it, the name sticks. Sometimes people think they have made a weave that no one else has ever made and they name it something different than what it is called on MAIL. Some people have never heard of MAIL and don't know any other name for a weave than what the person who taught it to them called it. MAIL is a great website, but we don't have any "authority" to force other people to call weaves the same thing we call them. When an alternate name becomes popular (not just a one time thing) and we find out about it, we try to make sure to add an AKA on the weave's page.

I occasionally google chainmaille and see what people are making and what they are calling it so that we can stay on top of things, but I'm sure I have missed some things. Smile That's why a picture is so helpful when people ask "what we is this? or "how do I make _______?
