That sounds like it would be a good AR for JPL..One connector byzantine might just barely work...Or, if you bought them from TRL, you could see about returning them

you could try half persion 3-1 out of it, but the ar needs to be bigger then 3.9

No, HP won't work that tight. However, I can vouch for JPL as I recently made 12' of JPL in that size, stainless and bronze.

Or, you can always make simple unit chains. (1-1-1, or possibly 2-2-2.)

Besides JPL and Byzantine, you could try using it in a japanese weave, either as the standing or flat rings. You'd need to get a second ring size for that though.

JPL is just spiral, so it's not that bad if you go 1 ring at a time, and once you get the hang, you can speedweave.

Don't look at it so much as lenght, but rather as how loose or tight it fits you. My necklace is 1ft 3 in, but that doesn't tell you anything useful, because everyone's neck is a different size, so what is ideal for one person might strangle another. Guy's necklaces cannot be long and dangly like girls necklaces, but neither can they be chokers. Mine is loose enough that I can almost stick my hand through the space when I'm wearing it, but it still looks snug, and therefore better. It also helps that the necklace is not airy, but is thick, and inherently pointy.

By the time you get through five inches of Jens Pind, you'll realize what a decidedly simple weave it is. And it goes pretty fast as well, even one ring at a time.

I can't imagine speedweaving it, though...seems like it would be more of a hassle to figure that out than to just make it ORAAT. Plus, the dense size would make it hard to close the rings.

lengths are tricky. i have seen other guys wearing choker-tight necklaces while mine is 3' long. it is all personal preference. if you are selling them i would say have a few longer ones in addition to whatever other length you decide on
