My first creation was this skirt. It was inspired by the work of Autumn Kegley, she's taken the pic of her skirt off her site, but it was basically the same as the design I started out with. It's a simple design, but was an extreme first project just because of the number of rings. It's made of 12gauge 3/8ID aluminum with a Euro 4-1 weave. In the first iteration it contained 5lbs of rings. Then it got a bit of revision, became a little fitted, a little longer, and got a pound or so heavier. It has a leather tie that makes it easy to get in and out of.
My second skirt, designed to give the impression of lace. It is constructed out of acid etched aluminum, 14 gauge 3/8 and
18 gauge 3/16 inch rings, in varietions of Japanesse weaves. It has a leather tie that makes it a bit easier to get in
and out of.
This is my first successful chainmail purse. It's made of 18gauge 3/16ID aluminum and copper rings. The sides are a Euro
6-1 weave and the top and bottom are Euro 4-1 weave. This was the 3rd attempt at a purse made entirely from chainmail. The 6 in 1 was not easy to weave, but I was
very pleased with the results.
A nickel silver European 4 in 1 bracelet and matching choker. After completing the first phase of the aluminum skirt, I decided to do a smaller piece. I did the choker first, then turned out the matching bracelet at a later point.
A nickel silver half-persian choker. This piece has barrel clasps which makes it easy to put on and take off. Since it is fixed length, sizing has to be pretty precise. Note: The lighting in the pictures make it look more gold than it really is in the first two shots.
A unique choker I made. It is primarily nickel silver half-persian choker, but also contains
aluminum and copper and and a variety of weaves. This piece has barrel
clasps which makes it easy to put on and take off.
A copper half-persian bracelet. I think this may be the first half-persian weave I did. Although I can't remember for sure. It uses a homemade hook, which can be tricky to hook and unhook with one hand.
