The J4-1 Cube put a big smile on my face. Very Happy


traceyalex: you should try out the weave. There's a tutorial for the doubled version: Japanese 8 in 2 Cube (CGI).


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

traceyalex: There are two possible types of J4-1 Cubes.

Type I has six equal outer surfaces ('interstice'), like the one I made, and Type II has four equal outer surfaces ('interstice') plus two equal and parallel outer surfaces ('level'), as shown in the tutorial.

Type II Cubes do always consist of more rings, than Type I Cubes.

Hi, I made a Japanese 4in1 Cube out of pipe insulation. The rings have a square profile and the cube has 28 cm edge length. I closed the rings with a hot-melt gun.

WD = 13 mm ID = 35 mm AR = 2.69 # = 252 Rings

Oh I like that.
You could use it as a footstool!

So last semester in one of my sculpture class I used chainmail in all my pieces in nontraditional ways. This lead to a lot of thinking about different ways of going about making, using, and presenting chainmail. None of these where made for my class but the ideas got their start there. I've had the Foam Expansions Coral and Balloon Diamond pictures for a few weeks but haven't been able to get them posted until now.

Foam Expansions Coral: This piece was made along a similar train of thought as crochet coral is with expansions open expansions. It's European. The queen ring has seven off of it and each row has an expansion off all the rings in the previous row. So the ring count by row is Queen, 7, 14, 28, 56, 112, 224, 448 totaling 890 rings.
Note: I added the some ribbon I had to some of the outside edge to help the way it behaves to be more visible.


This (the second picture,) is the one I want used for the voting.



Balloon European 4 in 1 Diamond: This piece had it's challenges but was fun to make. After the photo shoot on my way in the wind pulled it out of my hand and straight into the grass and a evergreen bush and it sounded like popcorn. LOL
Note: I wish I had access to Helium.


And lastly
Cow Femur Fivelet: I learned that cutting bone is hard, stinks, and is dangerous, but the results where quite promising.
Note: The ring in the center has a much more useful AR then the other 4 and came from a separate bone.


This contest has been a lot of fun! I hope everyone else has been enjoying it as much as I have.

This one is done with The Ring Lord's plastic snap links. I'm surprised nobody else has used them so far.

Necklace, bolted Celtic Visions variant. The Celtic Visions is a variant because it lacks the centre link, it just has the outside links. The Celtic Visions units are bolted together with small sections of 4-in-1 chain (aka 2-1-2 chain).

The links are:
Shell (Olive-Grey, Grey) ID=20mm, OD=30mm, WD=5mm, AR=4
Shell (Grey) ID=12, OD=20, WD=4, AR=3
Plastic snap (Clear, Black) ID=12.7mm, OD=18.5mm, WD=2.9mm, AR=4.38

And there's a large black lobster clasp to clasp the necklace together.

It's a very chunky necklace. Smile

Life Jacket for my Grand Daughter.
Made of pool noodles. AR- Approx 2.5 (I had to cut the noodles into disks and then each disk into 2 rings.)
Not sure what the weave is. I stumbled onto it and haven't been able to find the right AR's to make it out of standard rings so I can submit it.

That has to be the most practical no-metal entry of them all!

It looks like Japanese 4-in-1 with orbital rings.

Icemaille Euro 4-1!

I added some food coloring to the water. It didn't completely turn out the way I'd planned, but I made a very colorful mess. Smile

The rings started out at approximately AR 5.3, but they started melting pretty quickly as I was working. The blue end of the sample is more melted than the green end.

I did find a way to close the rings, but it was an absolute pain. Melting the rings open without cracking them was hard enough.
