I must have been drugged.... for 2 days straight.... by this little triangle!!!
It's another shameless copy of Scott David Plumlee's masterful play on Byzantine weave. From the first moment I saw it, I was hooked; yet it took me nearly a year to finally make a successful Tripoli Triangle.
No, it's not hard. Anyone who's done Byzantine and Mobius can figure out how to make this. But the devil is in the details. Took me a while to find just the right size rings to create a sturdy yet still flexible chainmaille pendant. Mind you, this is not a sculpture:-)
Before getting this one done just right, I went thru several iterations; I like some guess work with some math when it comes to chainamille...:-) This one is my favorite so far; it has 2 ring sizes: 19 swg, BA, wrapped on 1/8" mandrel, actual AR about 3.35; large rings are 16 swg, BA also, wrapped on 7/32" mandrel. Won't surprise me these are not the sizes that Master Plumlee used, but this combination works for me. So I made another one, and another, one more, etc. Now I'm tempted to try his Sequential Triangle bracelet......
This little triangle is totally addictive!
