It would be TRL's large rings (22.2mm x 35.8mm, 8.9mm hole).
I think they were doing only large and small scales back in 2011.

It also depends on the general aesthetic you're looking for.
Larger rings would be more visible to the public, but look less historical.

There is a stats page, but unfortunately the active members' count seems bogus or is not computed (= 0).

I don't see any problem if someone puts a copyright/licence notice in their images and descriptions.

Proposed changes:
1) Moving the name of the submitter and the date into the weave description.
This way, it would be dead clear what belongs to them, and looks less like they own the weave.

I see a lot of discussions here, but not so much proposals or a concrete description of what the problem is.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by purchasing a pattern.
Is it just buying a tutorial? That won't change your rights to reproduce or not a pattern.
Is it buying a licence to reproduce a pattern? Th ...

Hello and welcome.

I wouldn't wear zinc-plated every day, as it has a distinctive scent and can let black zinc oxide on cloths.
Stainless steel would be a better, but more expensive, choice.

For most weaves, if not all, the relevant ring size is the ratio between its diameter and its thickness (wire diameter), called the Aspect Ratio.
AR = Ring Inner Diameter / Wire Diameter
That way, y ...

I think the simpler way would be to trim the mail with a strip of leather, and put the clasps on it.

An harder, better looking, idea would be to make small metal plates / non-standard-rings with ho ...

How big is the box?
If it's relatively small, I would just do a rough sort and use them when I need a single ring or two of an uncommon size.
To build a full project out of it, I'll look for a proje ...

For reference: [weave=Aura], [weave=Aura Sheet], [weave=Radiate]

Just a wild guess, as I've never used any of these weaves:
I think you should put a single big ring + two connectors of a Aura unit ...
