Viper Basket-Need help on AR

I'm really bad with AR's. I really wanna make a viper basket bracelet. But I normally only keep in stock 16g 1/4" & 5/16" and 18g 3/16". That SO did not work.

What rings do you guys think I need to order and could I work it with any of the rings I already have?

Thanks in advance for the help!

I'm assuming you mean the variation in this article Orbital Vipera Berus and a Variation. The rings used in that are 16awg(1.29mm)/9.0mm copper with an AR of 7.2, and 16awg(1.29mm)/5.75mm sterling silver with an AR of of 4.7.

Can you give us the actual wire diameter of the rings you have or the rings you are thinking of buying?

When you say 16g, do you mean 16awg or 16swg? It would help to know where you bought your rings. A gauge number is not enough. We need to know which gauge system the gauge number is referring to.

The Orbital Vipera Berus and a Variation is what I'd like to make, more specifically, the variation. Everyone I've seen selling it calls it viper Basket...sorry.

I get my rings from the ring lord. I think they are SWG. the size I have are for SWG 16 g (1.59 mm) in 1/4" and 5/16" and SWG 18 g (1.2 mm) 3/16"

Those are what I stock. Those did NOT work out well when I was playing around. Smile

I was wondering what I would need to order to make that weave. Something close to the sizes I already have, I don't want to make anything too chuncky or a large ring'd.

I've been forever trying to make a captive D20 pendant too and am looking at other sizes and gauges so I'm open to ordering a small amount of a new size.

Thanks in advance for all the help!

You will need to buy or make some rings since what you have on hand won't work. I would suggest trying 16swg 7/16" and 16swg 9/32" in bright aluminum. If you look at the gallery pictures of Orbital Vipera Berus
http://www.mailleartisans.org/gallery/gallerylist.php?weavetags=Orbital+Vipera+Berus
you can see some other sizes that work too.

I have used the following sizes for Viber basket aka Orbital Vipera Berus with doubled middle rings ...

All I use BA or AA in SWG - All these have worked for me: 16g 7/16 with 18g 7/32, or 18g 5/16 (or 19/64) with 18g 3/16, or 16g 3/8 with 18g 1/4. My fav combo is the latter; the 16g 3/8 (approx. AR 6) with 18g 1/4 (approx. AR 5.3), but I like it kind of chunky Smile
