derakon.chainmailstore.com/foxtail.htmlThe foxtail chain is the basic chain of an unusual family of weaves that aren't strictly maille at all. These weaves must be made from rings that are permanently sealed shut - either made from rubber or welded after formation. The unique property of these weaves is that it is not necessary to open or close a single ring in the weaving. Instead, rings are pulled through each other, leaving small loops poking out that can be used to add the next ring. Rubber rings are ideal for this kind of work as you can really abuse them without doing any damage to them. Beautiful jewelery can also be made from silver or gold wire rings; see the Silver Weaver (http://www.silverweaver.com/) website for several examples of this kind of jewelery.

On this page you will find links to many of the instruction sets that I have created in my time as a mailler. Each one is accompanied by carefully rendered 3D images that should clearly demonstrate how to make the weave.

Cat saves life of abandoned newborn baby
04/15/2006
Berlin (Reuters)
A cat saved the life of a newborn baby abandoned on the doorstep of a Cologne house in the middle of the night by meowing loudly until someone woke up, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

"The cat is a hero," Cologne police spokesman Uwe Beier said. "Its loud meowing got the attention of the homeowner and saved the baby from suffering life- threatening hypothermia. The homeowner opened door to see why the cat was making so much noise and discovered the newborn."

Beier said the boy was taken to hospital at 5 a.m. on Thursday, when overnight temperature fell towards zero, and had suffered only mild hypothermia. He said there was no indication of what happened to the boy's mother.
