Chainmaille Balls June 5, 2008

Anodized aluminum is one of my favorite materials to work with. It’s lightweight, doesn’t tarnish, and the colors are bright and vibrant. Plus, it’s soft and easy on the hands. These juggling balls (or paperweights, or keychains, or just bobbles) were really popular and fun to make. I had a big basket of them at my booth, because they’re impossible to not touch! I had 13 colors of aluminum and each ball used 2 colors- so many combinations!
