Jen's Pend (http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=9008) would also work as a fairly strong rope weave.

Transparent gifs are the same as normal gifs. The only difference is you choose a color to be transparent (the color of the background of your image assuming it is a uniform color). Then, things that ...

Welcome Lady Mead!

Hard temper aluminum is a joy to work with, light, easy to bend, but strong enough for many applications. 1/2hard brass (C260), 1/2hard bronze (C510) are also pretty easy to work ...

I've worked with 12K (1/20) and 14K (1/2) gold fill wire (the 1/20 refers to the fact that 1/20th [5%] of the wire is gold by weight), in dead soft and full hard tempers.

I propose we explicitly specify what type of "inner diameter" we are using in our posts.

Until recently I never gave ring inner diameters much thought. When I'd read or specify IDs, I assumed these ...

Hockywierdo, do you have to have a buckle, or just a way to fasten the belt? If just to fasten, and depending on the weave, you can make a hook-and-eye type closure (similar to bracelets/necklaces) wh ...
