    Default Mesh Bracelet

    Here's a little something I finished he other day. Can't claim that the design is original but I wanted to make it as an exercise in soldering.
    Would be really interested in your opinions and thoughts

    That's fabulous! I keep meaning to do one of these, but never seem to find the time. Love the clasp as well - beautifully executed

    Love it, really clever. Lots of patience cutting all those jumprings.

    Thanks for you comments. Pat, not jump rings - springs!

    Cant figure out how they are put together, if its springs how do they join to the next one.

    A real labour of love. Deserves a recipient who can appreciate the construction too. Dennis.

    I took some photos while I made it. Will try and get them loaded.
    To be truthful - I do try to be - it was really fiddly but there was so much of it that I got the knack and them it kinda flowed. It did improve my soldering but I did hold my breath a lot.
    Thank you for all your kind comments. I am proud of it and for the time being it's mine!!! I suppose I will sell it if someone really wants it, but for now I'm enjoying it.
    As I said, not an original idea but a bit of a mission and a LOT of .8mm wire.

    I would be really interested in the construction, I would like one myself.
