I’m in.


Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

This is a 48-ring containing piece of "Orbital Japanese 8 in 2 (O1)" sheet weave, which is simply Japanese 8 in 2 with one orbital ring per connection point.

As a pendant, hung from a piece of HP3-1:


As a sample of the weave:


Rings used: .048” stainless steel wire, mandrels of 21/64”, and 33/128”. AR of 7.9, and AR of 6.0. This is the weave’s approximate 2 ring size minimum AR combination, which might be possibly further reduced with a 3rd ring size.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a pendant since this type of orbital rings undergo a fair amount of stress and tension. Even in .048" stainless, the orbitals gap slightly from tension. But it sure looks nice!

Not sure what to call it....the large ring is 12 swg 1.5 inch BA ring with mostly 16swg 5/16" and a few 16swg 1/4", also a few other odd sizes. All but the largest ring came from TRL.
