Chainmaille Madness! My Most Ambitious Project EVER.
For once I’m actually reviewing my own product here, I’ve been spending a lot of time crafting and here’s the result. It’s a completely hand-made chainmaille top, made with pliers, patience and a fair amount of swearing. Each bright aluminium link has been lovingly opened and closed and generally messed around with by me. I’ve never made anything like this before, so this is my first attempt. Whaddya think? I finished it last night, took photos and bunged it on Folksy for sale so I’m, as they say, buzzing. It would be quite useless in the face of battle, but it would be fantastic at a cocktail party or in a club, as long as there’s no-one shooting arrows at you at you.
I’m not used to this blowing my own trumpet sort of thing, but if I want to sell this, then I have to. *blushes* Feel free to drop by my Folksy account if you’re interested or I have a ‘Bumbling Bee’ Facebook page if you prefer. You’d be very welcome on either page and I do list other items too, which you may like.
I put a lot of time, effort and skill into my work and I’d love your feedback. Please do drop by! This top took me approximately a month of spending almost every available minute with a pair of pliers by the way. You could call it knitting with metal I suppose.
I am open to negotiation by the way, especially if you mention that you discovered my work via this blog. ;O)
Anyway, I hope you like my very new hobby, which is mostly just another really elaborate way to avoid doing the housework. The Brink of Bedlam household looks like a bomb has dropped on it, but I do have a lovely top to show for it.
My mother does not approve and thinks I should clean the cooker rather than make chainmaille tops, but what the hell!
