What are your favorite weaves to do with neoprene rings for stretch bracelets and such?

I found an article here Weaves with Neoprene Rings, but I have done others and wondered what you all have done too.

Do share Smile

I have done Half Persian 3 in 1 - (I used 16g SWG 5/16 rings)



Shenanigans (doing the preclose large rings version - I used approx. 16g SWG 5/16 rubber rings and 18g 3/16)



I did a Dragon Tail one too (I used approx. 16g SWG 5/16 rubber rings and 18g 3/16)



Helm Chain - (I used approx. 16g SWG 5/16 rubber rings and 18g 3/16)



Snake Skin chain - (I used approx. 16g SWG 5/16 rubber rings and 18g 3/16)



I did a Segmented Byzantine with approx. 16g 5/16 rubber rings and 18g 3/16 AA rings -



And this one, I am not sure what the name of the weave is and I don't remember the sizes of the rubber rings. The others were 18g 3/16 ...

Flutter, great bracelets!

I have a question with the white rings - do they discolor easily while wearing?

If so, how do you clean them?

I've made a dragonscale cuff (rubber as small pre-closed rings) and elfweave braid (speed weave-style, starting with a 2-1 chain, every other ring being rubber).

Of course, I've also made HP3-1 and E4-1, but those are more 'standard' uses of rubber rings, I think.

Thanks Smile

I have not had one with the white rings myself, but I am sure they will get dirty.

I tell people not to wear them all the time and to keep them in a clean/dry place when not being worn.

I guess you could clean it with mild soap and water.

Half Persian 4 in 1 makes nice stretch bands, in my opinion. I've also got some European 4 in 1 Unbalanced (aka Oops) cuff type bracelets. Helm Chain and Conundrum armbands using rubber for all the small rings.

At first I thought it was This Is Not Flat, but further investigation proves it to be Crenelated.

The only weave I've done with stretchy rings so far has been European 4 in 1.

I have never purchased or worked with stretchy rings. Sad
