GREAT design.
I seem to have spurred someone with my maille-maille experiments to embed maille-made rings into her art. Very Happy

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

Wow that is amazing you and ZiLi truly floor me. I can do JPL 5 but to connect it on itself is just amazing! I love your design for the necklace it reminds me of some things I have seen done with diamonds.

I made a pendant out of some joined JPL5 in square wire rings last year. And I made one of the circles for these earrings shortly after that. It had been sitting on my work desk for months, waiting for me to do something with it when I saw your JPL5 made of JPL5. So it did indeed inspire me to make this JPL5 Circle necklace Zili. Very Happy

Joining JPL5 to a circle is a straightforward affair - imho. The trick is to weave until the 1st and the last ring have the same orientation to be able to layer them atop each other - to simply follow the weaving pattern and be finished after four further rings. If you know how to join JPL3 (where you need two rings for joining), the technique can be used analogous. Same is valid for any member of JPL family, e.g. JPL7 needs six further rings for closing. And once you get the hang of it, it's a piece of cake. Currently I even prefer to weave a couple of short, good manageable strips of JPL5 consisting of maybe 20 to 30 rings, and join them thereafter.
