Moon Weaves -

One of the most fascinating things about chainmaille is VARIANTS! Who knew you could hook rings together in so many ways!?

Take the bracelet I'm wearing in the picture; the weave is called Harvest Moon. Now look at the WIP adding large alternating orbital rings to Harvest Moon, I now have Crescent Moon. There's another variant called Moon42 (that's on my other wrist). All three of these weaves, and more, belong to the Helm family...

In future posts, I'll be exploring Dragon, Wyrm, and Elf weaves. Stay tuned!

OVB Lace WIP -

This is a variation of a weave called Orbital Vipera Berus. I'm really liking the look of it, and it works up quickly. Definitely will be making more of these!

The first layer consists of a simple chain of colored (in this instance) rings, then larger orbital rings woven thru the small rings as the second pass. 

On the third trip down the length of the bracelet, additional small rings are added to offset the large rings.

...and here's the finished bracelet!

Drop me an email if you're interested in owning this bracelet, or if you'd like to order it in a different color.

Welcome! to the New Home of My Chainmaille -

I finally have a home for maille projects; I'll be posting WIPs, finished pieces, and shows as they come up. Thanx for checking in!

This has been one of my favorites to date — Jones the Dragon! He took about three days, and as soon as I get more rings, Jones will have siblings. Drop me an email if you'd like to order a dragon.

That lil Etsy widget over to the right will soon have chainmaille listings, but for now, just contact me at the email above if ya need a piece o'maille!
