New items, and new kickstarter in the works

I have been busy making a bunch of different things!
First, after the success of the chainmail necktie, I found pictures of a chainmail bow tie. Of course, me being me, I had to try it!
I love how it came out! I already have a couple co-workers placing orders for me to make these for them, too!
Here is the result:



I have also made a new bracelet, and a new necklace. I'm not too thrilled with how the pendant sits on the necklace, so I'm toying with ideas to fix it.



I am also in the planning stage of another Kickstarter!
I have been deciding on the rewards to offer, and I would love to get some feedback from you guys! Are there any particular chainmail items that you have seen here that you would like to see as a reward in my upcoming Kickstarter?
I have already decided to include a couple bracelet designs, stretchy dice bag/coin purse, and as a big ticket item, my chainmail scarf. I would like to have one or two more items available, though, which is where you come in!

I am currently gathering photos, and will need to take some more. I will be working on a new video, as well for the project, so I may not have any more completed projects to post about the next couple weeks. I'll try to come up with something to post about, though!

Chainmail tie

Inspiration struck again, and I have created a chainmail tie, this time!
I chose the colors based on what rings I had the most of, and the striped design is similar to the scarf that I made.






I haven't yet added a clasp to the back, and I'm not 100% thrilled about how the knot came out, but overall I like it. I may experiment with the design a bit to find a better knot.
