May I just say, I think chainmaille… rocks.
There is so much of it I want to learn. Problem is, it’s vera hard. Vera, vera hard. Vera. For me, that’s what makes it so fun. I try and try and try. Then try again.Then all of a sudden, it just … clicks.
It’s kind of that way with all this jewelry I’ve been learning how to make the last couple of months. A lot of trial and error, much trying, much failing, much trying harder. Then all of a sudden, a big ‘Ah-Ha!” moment.
It’s been a blast.
I just had another one of these ah-ha moments with a new chainmaille pattern. A new one I can add to my ‘can make’ collection. So far, I’ve done Helms Weave, Byzantine Weave, Mobius Knots and now… Half-Persian 3-1.
I haz new chain 😀
Oooooffffffff course you do. 😉
I think it makes a cool chain. Once I get a clasp for it, perhaps it’ll be a new bracelet for the Etsy shop.
Know what else I think is cool?
I just made my 20th sale. Um… O.O
I am over.the.TOP. about that. I really never expected to have such a great response to mah jewel-er-ies. To all of you that have encouraged me and/or bought a piece, uber thank you. I heart you. 🙂
In honor of this uber greatness, I decided to have a giveaway. And since I just learned a new chainmaille, I figured I’d combine the two and have… you guessed it… a chainmaille giveaway.
Here’s the deal. Leave a comment on this post letting me know if you’d like to enter, and at the end of the month I’ll announce the winner of…
my Helms Weave Bracelet. It’s made from silver plated and brass rings; you can find more info on it in the shop here.
