New square wire rings

We have received lots of requests to be able to make a square dragonscale with both rings the same gauge, and other than 20g. So with that we have made 18-M rings. Copper and stainless steel are already up in the store. Bronze and red brass will follow shortly.

We have also made a new size…..”N” Also up in the store in copper and stainless 18 gauge, with others to follow. This is the large ring we used to make the Viper basket below. (with a 18-G small ring)

The Help Zone

As promised, our weave chart is back up and in it’s new location……..The help zone……the zone of help.

In the zone, you will also currently find a square wire ring size chart.  Printed out this chart will show you actual size of our square wire rings.

Over the course of the next few days you will see many new additions to the weave chart.  First to show up will be the new patterns we have done in square wire.  Shortly thereafter you will start to see ring counts and size recommendations for weaves in round wire.  Want to know how many rings you will need to make a byzantine bracelet in 20g 7/64″ rings?  It will be here.

This chart will undergo some changes in the next few weeks as well, as we add more functionality to it.  Want to know what you can make with an 18g 9/32″ Ring?  It will be here.

We hope you gets lots of use out of this new resource, and as always, we would love to hear what you think.

And remember, It’s in the Maille!

Square wire weave chart

For those of you that use our square wire weave look up tool, we are doing some major renovation to it and as a result it will be down for a little while.  If all goes as planned it should be back up tonight or tomorrow morning.

When it comes back on line we will have it in a new location (don’t worry, we will give you a link so you don’t have to hunt for it), it will be more functional, and best of all, it will also provide the start to our new comprehensive ring count database.  Yes, that’s right.  We are making a searchable, sortable database of weaves, ring sizes and ring counts!

Remember, It’s in the Maille!
