Reform, could you size your pictures down a little to comply with contest rule 3.

Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.[/i]

Also, I would love for you to tell us what weaves you used. Smile

Thank you!


I got the file size down, but not the pixels, my bad.

The weaves are there, I'll bold them so it's easier to see.

Edit: Should be fixed now.

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.

Graduated Bronze and Brass Flat Full Persian Earrings.



Rings are:
(Bronze)
0.048" WD 1/4" mandrel
0.048" WD 15/64" mandrel
0.040" WD 15/64" mandrel
0.040" WD 7/32" mandrel
0.040" WD 13/64" mandrel

(Brass)
0.032" WD 3/16" mandrel
0.032" WD 11/64" mandrel

... Maybe I should have put some raw copper in there too, but that would tarnish at a significantly higher rate.

A Cynister Statement Piece...

Here's my submission... sorry to cut it so close to the wire, but, Hey! You know how it is... Wink

Bit of a statement piece, here is a necklace made from a weave of my creation I call "Cynister" (named for my lovely wife Cyndi). The medallions are graduated in three sizes, and finished with Helm Chain, which is also graduated from 18swg 9/32" down to 20swg 5/32". (from 16 different WD/ID rings)

The necklace is adjustable from about 20" to 21"-ish, made from 408 stainless steel and bronze rings and weighs just less than 2 1/2" ounces. Rings are all saw cut, from TRL and Joshua Diliberto of Mithril Weaver, and a few that I hand-cut myself.

25 total ring sizes include:

14swg 1/2"
16swg 7/16", 13/32", 3/8"
18swg 5/16", 9/32", 5/16", 1/4", 7/32", 13/64", 3/16", 5/32"
19swg 1/4", 15/64", 7/32", 3/16", 5/32", 9/64", 7/64"
20swg 3/16", 11/64", 5/32", 9/64", 1/8", 7/64"

I'm pretty happy with it, myself... Hope y'all like it as well!







This last shows the full graduation of the chain itself...(16 ring sizes)
