Is there a spiral chain that i can make that wont uncoil? Because it seems like when i make one, i constantly have to recoil it up again, i need one that wont uncoil so that i can make a necklace out of it. Help would be great.

I just started doing this about a month ago, so im not to sure how to make locked spiral, do you have a link, or even a picture would work.

Well I'll be... locked spiral doesn't appear to be a weave anymore... I guess it's now This Is Not Food

This is a great place to find spiral weaves.

Gotta love that search function...

Jens Pind Linkage is also a spiral that won't unlock. http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=9008

M gf's bday is comming up here in about a month and i wanted to make her kind of a micro maille necklace, but im not sure on which weaving pattern would be the best, i was originally going to go with a spiral chain, but i didnt want her to have to twist it everytime she put it on, so i might go wth something more complex like B8FP, maybe byzantine or trizantine, or boxmaille. im planning on buying some 22g sterling silver wire but im not sure if 1 oz. would be enough to do a complex necklace. Help/info would be greatly appreciated.

If you want to make her a spiral neckalce, then do multiple strands, in a kind of drapery form, and connect them all with a "queen ring" so to speak. If it's multiple strands, it won't uncoil and you can use a clasp.

According to The Ring Lord site, 1 oz. of 22ga sterling silver should be about 27.5 feet.

I don't know if I'm too late, but if you take two basic spiral chains and twist them around eachother (pic in my profile) then join them together at either end, they wont unravel because they support eachother
