Since I usually make my own rings, I have the ability to experiment with a ot of sizes, but not too many of them keep showing up as necessary or even useful. Right now what I use the most is 20G 5/32, ...

I don't know if a table knife counts as a weapon or if this qualifies as 2/3 chain, but I think it's worth posting anyway.

The handle looks wonderful and I'd love to know that weave, but since you ...

In the case of complicated, one-shot unit weaves that don't like to stay tidy before they're completed, just press the mess a bit into a slab of modeling clay.

TheRingLord sells premade sheets too, albeit in a much smaller gauge.

I would say the aspect ratio in the picture is certainly much higher than 4, and the wire is 18 gauge or thinner.

I do love Whirlybird and Inverted Spiral for earrings.

Damn it looks so nice!
Some rusty iron texture and it would be perfect.
