5 a night plus expenses... and she is a gamer girl so you have to buy her videogames all the time and pay for her MMO subscriptions. Tongue

Done and done!  How do you want to handle shipping?

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Would you beable to to make a chainmail wrist band of about 2inches wide, Light with Very small loops and Smooth connection points?
I would like to have a nice peice comfy enough to wear 12/7 and tight enough that it doesnt slip up and down but can still rotate
I have rather small wrists

And If you are willing to do such work would you beable to provide photo samples of your smallest repeat looping?
Aswell as a price estimate?

There are a few options with this, I could do with a really small ring but the smaller ring the more impossible a tighter weave is (also with the wire i have, Aspect ratios become an issue...  wire diameter to diameter of ring)  I can either do a 1in4 weave of really small rings (i forget the exact size) or i can do a 1/6 weave, out of 5/16 inch rings.  Im thinking you would prefer a 1/6 weave because it looks boss... It would look like the choker above, but not as tight... and smaller rings.  I would make it double wide to get the 2 inches.

Previous bracelets I made work out to about 3-4 oz depending on length... can you measure your wrist for me with a piece of string telling me how long you want it?  My guess is final weight would be between 5-9oz, with the current price of btc i think I will be droping down to 2btc per oz (mabe less if prices stay stable) So you can expect to pay anywhere between 10-18 btc.  The main question will be if i have to make it tripple wide for the width you want.

I will probably just make this even if you aren't sure you want it fully... just because I have been wanting more bracelets like this for myself.... they are popular and I fully sold out of the style im describing at the last convention I was at.

This would only take me a day to make, but i have a wedding this weekend that I am in, and after that im moving on the 21, but ill see if i can get a prototype done in a week.

How do you want it to attach?  lobster clasp? suade straps (tie it), toggle clasp... I could make it a solid loop and you could hope to be able to get it on and off :|

I think your right about the "what i would prefer part", In your photos the top peice is the choker right?, If so, then double that width and add in the 1/6 weave, Close it with Spring Ringsx2 for a nice camouflage closure.
6¾' is my comfy wrist circumference. measured 6½


Re-estimatation of prices please? now that you have more information?, Oh my #1 concern is the smoothness of the place where each ring loop meets, I dont want to rotate the wrist band and get scratched by "that one bad link" Because the chain is only as strong as the weakest link.
If there were "that bad link" then i would expect to have a horribly chaffed and scarred wrist after a week of wearing the band

ooO! now that i think about it how much for a smallest ring choker with a lobster clasp(spring ring).
the one in the photo seems loose near the lower end.
Now i want a 24/7 choker!:D can you make them comfy enough for 24/7 use?(again, like the smoothness of the linking needs to be flawless of jagged parts)
yeah i'd actually prefer the choker if i can get the jewel for it

The choker is actually huge, like... its a heavy beast and does not work well as a choker, as it literly chokes you with its weight... but it's bad ass!

The whole 6/1 4/1 8/1 literly means that there are 6 rings, 4 rings 8 rings looping through each ring in the middle of the piece, because of that... ending them so they look flawless is only possible with a 4/1 really... if i did a piece that ended nicely with 8/1 i would need 6 clasps and you would need to re weave it every time you put it on, and is simply not practical.

One thing I could do, and i have never done this before... is use some rubber rings, i usually like to make my own rings but if the flawless closure is important to you... thats the best way i would imagine.  (the rubber rings would stand out though, not looking metalic at all.

interesting idea on the spring clasp, ill have to see if i can find them in the sizes i need, for some reason I had never thought of using them.

Im kind of iffy on quoting you a price, we already had issues on my first sale of deflation messing with the pricing, so i think i will lock in pricing when i ship.

We will have to work out exactly how you want it closed once i make some samples.  If i have to buy extra supplies, i will have to charge a bit more.

I only needed a flawless clasp if it was to be a wrist band, A standard lobster clasp should do just fine, And yeah 4/1 single strand choker,
Does it really weigh that much? I understand the combined total weight of the individual rings but, Heavy? Nah!, people wear 4lbs chains all the time around the neck, im wearing a hemp necklack with a 2lb weigh on it right now, And the swaying is getting annoying, so i tucked in in my shirt, Nottt exactly visible, So here i am

We dont need to emphasis the Choker part but i'd like the necklace not to sway, and to not droop too much

I would like to state that I have made a very successful trade with aahzmundus. He sent me my item before I paid him, and even let me wait until I got what I'm purchasing before paying him. We didn't use clearcoin or anything (By the way, I don't suggest you trust people as much as you trusted me. There are a lot of scammers out there.) I still haven't paid him, as I would like to have a final discussion with him about pricing. Just wanted to let everyone know that he's a good guy. Smiley

Nah, thats my wife.... i think that was mentioned earlier in this thread.  I'm working on a bunch of samples that im going to force myself to keep and not sell to show you so we can work out exactly what you want.  Im going to start with 5/16 inch rings as I have around 20pounds of those rings already made up.
