Another Busy Week

I have been busy again this week.  I finally got the Day of the Dead rosary done plus a few other things including some more chainmaille. 

My shipment of rings arrived from Canada so I was very excited to play with a new idea.  I'm doing byzantine bracelets in school or team colors.  For right now, I think I'm only going to have them listed on Ebay and Etsy.  I'll see how it goes there and maybe add them to the website late.

Here are the latest pictures:

It's getting to be that time of year

It's coming upon the Renaissance Faire Season 
and look what I have for you

I pulled out all my chainmaille supplies (and ordered a few more that are on their way to me via camel from my supplier in Canada)

I've got a few pieces done and ideas for a bunch more.

Butterfly Choker in Aluminum - it's lightweight and comfortable - it' looks like silver but without the high price tag and doesn't tarnish.

Titanium Choker done in really tiny rings with little pink stars

Byzantine Bracelet done in white polished aluminum

I love this one - I call it Trapped in Blue - It's anodized gold aluminum with blue anodized aluminum trapped inside.  It has a semi Egyptian look.

I did this one for my daughter in her school colors- I ordered more anodized aluminum rings in a rainbow of colors so I can do custom order color combinations.

This one is a combination of natural titanuim and anodized niobium trapped pink rings

The last one for tonight is an anklet that I did by request for a FB friend that I met through Mikeysmail.  She loved the Butterfly Choker and asked if I could do something similar as an anklet.  I scaled it down with those TINY titanuim rings and here is the result:
