Just to let all know I am not dead / have not vacated the website again. Ever since the birth of Demoncherry and I's daughter back in march I haven't been on the internet much, and what spare time I did have in the lead up was mainly spent on a new fascination I had gained.
During experimentation with jewellery techniques involving jump rings I began trying out making byzantine style necklaces and the like, and then decided to try out european 4 in 1. Several links later I am now underway in attempting a chainmaille garment. I was originally contemplating making a maille shirt, though a friend challenged me to make it a trenchcoat / duster, and seeing as I am using aluminium rings rather than steel I may well do this, and then make a shirt out of steel rings so it has a much more practical application.
Also got some scales from the supplier with the chain rings and have been playing with them, may be incorporated into my next necklace whenever I get time.
Also visited London with the family today to attend the third annual devmeet, was great fun and very interesting to put faces to a couple of people and meet some other new deviants too.
