it just gets my since of perspective (sp?) off, like the pic was taken by reaching past the maille,
Code:

with the dot the camera (the bottem of it to the left) and the / where its looking and the -- being the thingy its looking at, so you see if the pic was like this:
Code:

    .

it could be sideways without geting me confused.
as to rotating the pic in photoshop or something like that I just print it so I can figure it out away from the computer, still kinda confusing for simple minds like me :grin:

The stem of my flower is regular full persian. I'm not a fan of grizzly.



There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

oh, i must mention. the 'stem' of the flower, it looks like regular full persian 6-1, but it is actually full persian grizzly. (grizzly is a much tighter version of full persian, so it holds it's form straighter.)

thanks for that link, it helps with it givining me the types of weaves and all, if I can't figure it out by just looking at it could you e-mail me the instructions to justin@cfl.rr.com it would be a great help if you could, I kinda got it, but its just a big confusing, and I'm pretty new to this stuff. again thanks alot all of you, I didn't think people would be so nice when I first joined M.A.I.L.

There are no real patterns or guidelines to making a maille flower. the best i can think of, is to show you a picture of Thexnihil's flower he made. Note: the colors arent nessicary, they just look pretty Very Happy



there are more pics at: http://members.tripod.com/thexnihil/maille2/flower.htm

Mysticmailler..
that weave? faery trap?
pretty simple..it's 2 ring sizes, a 2-1 chain,with one larger ring going inbetween the 2 on the 2-1 chain. hard to explain, but a simple weave.

Strangemaille Box? Kim where do you come up with this stuff? I'll give it a shot anyhow, seems like it should be feasible.

How about an article - or link to one - on spiral round? It looks very nice, and I'm told it's pretty easy. Supposedly, you just make a strip of 4in1 then connect the edges into a tube.

That sounds right and I can picture it in my head, but after a couple of hours playing with it my fingers have yet to get it right.

Thanks!

japaniese 5n1 ball is easy if you know how to do the japaniese 6n1.

all you have to do is start making the 5in1 pattern and it tends to close on it self. instead of laying flat like the 6n1 keep going around doing 5n1 and keep track of your pattern so when you close it it closes evenly.
the tightness of the rings and pattern size will determain the end size of the ball.

I don't know for sure, but I'd wager it would be something like a soccer ball in reverse...
