Oh, hey. Tongue

I actually did finish the new tie design ages ago, and took some new crappy pictures of my wife and I wearing them and various other pieces I did (including the collar).  I guess I'll have to post them some time.  At the moment, I'm hard at work writing HarmlessButler 2.0, which will be a huge technological advancement beyond the first.

I have a Hauberk I crafted years ago, weighs in at 17lbs, took over 1800 linear feet of 16 gauge galvanized wire and 3 weeks solid to make, I still have my custom made mandrel and winder somewhere. The callouses on my hands finally went away LOL.  Its a big hit at the Ren Fairs and on Halloween. But it is tiresome to wear for more than a few hours at a time.....
please disregard the twitch, the meds haven't kicked in yet...

I finished the maille teddy a few days ago.  I have lots of pictures this time, so rather than posting a whole bunch of links I threw them up on a drupal installation I had kicking around.  The gallery is viewable here:

http://drupal.honoredsoft.com/teddy

I'll eventually put up some galleries for the other work I've done, including the new tie, which I did get around to photographing in in an outdoor daylight setting (along with the original one and some other pieces).  The final edge tapering on the dragonscale tie is also much better now than the early shots showed.

My next big project will be a corset I had planned for quite some time.

I've just added 20 new galleries to the site which I guess is now dedicated to my maille work (http://drupal.honoredsoft.com/).  Perhaps eventually I'll actually put a little effort into site design, but for now it's a decent recap of my finished chain maille projects.

I currently have 2 huge projects on the go and coming out beautifully.  I've made a couple more ties now too, and I'm getting much more efficient at them.  I believe I could now equitably sell either design for about $200+shipping+material upgrades (i.e. if you want something other than bright aluminum).  If anyone's seriously interested, feel free to drop me a message.  Of course if it has to be shipped overseas, it's probably still not worth it.
