Celtic spikes flower/star on JPL, salvaged 19swg RG6 TV coax cable:



The star itself is about as wide as a standard SD card, if that helps for scale at all.

That is awesome. How long did that take you?

Hmmm, wasn't really paying attention to time. If I'd have to guess it'd be something like 3-4 hours, but that includes winding the wire and cutting the rings. And watching TV. Poke!

Sweet. Not sure I have the patience for it, to be honest.

It's not so bad, having a good set of instructions takes most of the frustration out (so long as you're using the right size rings). Of course, I haven't tried any big projects yet either, so....

I just finished my first sale piece (well, mostly finished--need to find out which clasp the client wants) and figured now would be a good time to set up the lightbox and take some pictures. Especially since I intend to enter that piece into the MAIL Artisans theme contest Very Happy

This is gonna be pic-heavy, and the pics are fairly large because I'm too lazy to try resizing, so I'm going to use spoiler tags.

ETA: ok, managed to resize one of the pictures because it had to be smaller per the contest rules. Not quite sure how I did it though, as I couldn't get any other pictures to resize. Also, contest has been entered. I have absolutely no expectation of winning, but still. This is exciting Very Happy

First is the Rosetta bracelet that I'm selling/entering in the contest. The silver rings are bright aluminum and the black are enameled copper.

This is a Viperscale bracelet made with bright aluminum and...bronze, I think?

A dragonscale necklace made with enameled copper

Two dragonscale bracelets made with enameled copper

And now some non-maille stuff that I want to share anyway:

Two pictures of the damascus dagger I bought at a Ren Faire awhile back

A necklace made by Eric's cousin using Precious Metal Clay

An ivory dragon pin inherited from Eric's grandfather
Spoiler:
 

Two dragon pendants I got as gifts from Eric's mom. First is pewter, second is jade and gold
Spoiler:

And last is a little dragon...bracelet? Maybe? I dunno, it's tiny and I have absolutely no idea where it came from.

Check this out!

The really, really cool part of this is the center bit: where the full Persian becomes a helm chain. This is really, really cool--I've never thought of that before, but now that I see an example it seems to be a fairly obvious progression (if you get the AR right). I'm goinig to have to play with that when I get home!
