Last month I appealed to my family and friends (you) to assist me in purchasing supplies for a chainmaille bra for the Art of Being a Woman Event at Studio 1219.
This project will have almost 5000 rings, in anodized aluminum and EPDM rings.
What is EPDM?
EPDM is UV resistant and has excellent mechanical properties for use in chainmaille.
EPDM is typically used as a roofing membrane or as a non-toxic pond liner. It is latex free.
I use EPDM rings in any project I need/want a little stretch. I create some bracelets that do not require clasps. (picture taken by theringlord.com, my exclusive supplier of EPDM rings).
