Chainmail Bow Ties by ChainedBeauty
Chainmail Bow Ties
So I've been making bow ties!  I made one, and people loved it, so I decided to make more!

I do these out of aluminum and rubber, so I can make a super tight weave that'll hold real well.  the rubber lets them flex a bit, so they're pretty comfy to wear.

Did you know I have an IndieGoGo project going for these?  I like 'em so much I want to make a lot more, and with your help I can!  Please consider checking it out, there's a bunch more info over there, plus a ton of extra pictures:…

  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Ninja Sex Party
  • Watching: Game Grumps
  • Playing: Rogue's Legacy
  • Drinking: Coffee
I just got back from NDK, my local anime convention.  I was selling in the artist's alley, and I had a complete blast doing so.  I met so many nice people, got tons of encouraging words, and was really impressed with the talent that was on show there.  I'm definitely going to try and get back there next year.

This makes the second excursion out into the general populous, and I'm planning more.  Everything's kind of up in the air right now, but I'll be doing updates when I get more shows lined up.

But for now, I have a few other, bigger projects I'm working on.  Between custom orders and restocking my inventory, I'm going to be working to put an actual website together.  Some place where I can direct everyone to and put up high-res photos and such.

I also have two major projects I've been itching to get around to.  These are going to be year-long time sinks, but the payoff is going to be worth it.  In the end, I hope to really expand as an artisan because of these.  Although I have nothing to share yet, that will quickly change.  So stay tuned, because I'll be sharing so good stuff with you all soon.

Cheers, everyone.

I like working with my hands. The ideas and patterns in chainmail come pretty easily to me.

I'm of an odd sort. Besides this, I write, draw, play music and brew beer. I create. A maker of things both odd and amusing. Because I'm odd and amusing. I can also be pretty dumb at times.

when I grow up I want to be a time traveler.

I love this much more then actual original result work of the dragon keychain from M.A.I.L., I really love your larger scale dragon versions. For the long green and blue dragon what weaves did you use out of curiosity. I've been working on a big dragon myself based on the M.A.I.L. tutorial but really like the slight modifications you did. Also your tutorial which I stumbled upon after getting frustrated with the head and found your way of doing the head made more sense to me.

Its kind of like a dragonback, without the "back" part.  I made two 3-in-1 half persian weaves, one of them in reverse, and attached both of those with 3 rows of Euro 4-in-1 for the belly, and then used the scales to secure the other end.  I go into more detail about how I did it in the Body section of my tutorial.
