Blue Chainmail flowers

UPDATE: [link] Crappy view of all the colors.


these are aluminum chainmail flowers with matching mobius balls on simple hair sticks.

i've been truly spending alot of time on these because i do not want to offend anyone else but i'm not ready to give up on these flowers. they are perfect for me and my style since fabric flowers just don't normally mesh and these are perfect for fire as well.

i'm really happy with how they turned out and how i make them. i was trying some other things and they were painful not only to my hands but i guess you could call it my sense of design. it just didn't mesh well in my head and i wasn't happy about it at all.

i just wanted to share some progress and i think i will work on some chain draping hair sticks.

have this amazing idea in my head and i can't seem to find the gears to fit it yet. i just need gears of varying size from like 1/4th inch to 2 or 3 inches wide. then i think i can really make some cool steampunk designs.

aw but i'm babbling. i just wanted to post this to prove i am working on chainmail :P

This is really amazing! I'm jealous! What size flat ring did you use? And were they small or large scales?

They were small scales. I think it was 8mm.
