wmoore, have you heard anything on your bracelets? Did you file for an extension to be sure you don't violate the 30 day time frame?
I'm going to do the same as you and send them a sample of each bracelet for their critique.

ebay
 
so i found some people selling the bracelets and also someone selling a kit
VIKING KNIT BRACELET KIT & INSTRUCTIONS, GREEN WIRE #2 - eBay (item 170616035298 end time Aug-12-11 09:20:41 PDT)

i guess if your not sure you can do it this would be a cheap way to see if you can make them.

i'm watching them so if you are bidding let me know so we don't outbid each other :)

tweetykiss 07-24-2011 09:53 AM

It is a very beautiful chain bracelet. I won't bid on it since I prefer to work for the company. I just hope they don't fire me.

I am not working for them yet. I have yet to order the starter kit and the tools. I watched the video by Stephanie Eddy who is good at it and I saw something on YouTube and it seems easy. I plan to do this and the macrame belts by hands on hobbies.

search youtube.com for viking knit. Also, reading this whole thread before you order will be most helpful.

I made my first bracelet this weekend. It was a little tough at first but then I got the hang of it. One thing that helped me with the memory wire was I didn't cut off my piece until I had it threaded, I found if you spun the bracelet around while pushing the wire it was easier to work it through.

Here is a video with Marilyn and Stephanie Eddy making the chain. Now you can do a search on Youtube for Viking Knit and it is explained very nicely there. I would put it here but lost the link. Sorry. I will be very busy for the next three weeks and I should have my first kit by then. Then I will do it.

Please PM me the info about this company you mentioned. Thanks.

Also for those who have done some of these titan chain kits, have you gotten paid and if so do you feel this company is worth it?

Thanks

I would be careful about asking for more information about this. It looks like someone just going around posting an opportunity on websites. Their join date is July of 2011. Usually these kind of posts end up to be scams. I not saying this particular one is but most posts like this I have seen in the past are.

Hi. I received my TC kit today. Looked for these 2 videos you mentioned . I couldn't find anything on Jewel School (Marilyn/Stephanie) that instructs how to make the exact weave, using the same tools. Couldn't find any instructions for wire weaving on YouTube with Viking Knit as you mentioned.

UPDATE: I just found a video on the TC website that's quite instructive. All I need now is a good light (as voicetress suggested) and I'm good to go!

so has anyone who turned work in got paid for it and was it worth it i know it takes some time to get fast on something new

mzgoolsby 08-01-2011 09:41 AM

Titan Chains
 
:rolleyes:I tried Titan Chains and it is impossible to do it on the mandrel they give you and you have to us it or they wont take the work. My advice is to stay away.I am and artisan and it was impossible for me to do the way they so to do it. The mandrel is the size of a metal close hanger and you have to weave 4 rows around it GOOD LUCK. I will be sending me kit back to see if I get a refund. Will keep you posted on my outcome. Good luck on another adventure.

starlighthill 08-01-2011 12:40 PM

I agree the mandrel is much smaller than I envisioned. It was frustrating trying to get it started. I almost threw it across the room. Then I went back to some email correspondence I had with the company before I ordered the kit. I was cautioned that the beginning loops will not be even or look right. Then I just got the best start I could and was amazed that it gets better as you proceed...just like they said it would. I then bought some colored craft wire to use for the starter loops and that helped. I made use of the help desk when I got stuck and they were prompt with their replies.
I just sent a sample of Style 1 and a sample of Style 2 to them to be sure I'm on the right track before continuing. I'll let you know how it goes.

is it on the titan chain website or somewhere else on another website

Titan Chains
 
I ordered a kit from them the other day, praying it is legit. I got my login code and though I would be able to see their newsletter and instructions with it. So far I haven't been able to find the link. Is this something you get to see after you get approved to assemble for them? I'm a little nervous now.

starlighthill 08-05-2011 07:03 AM

The website with the instructions for making the bracelets will be included in your supplies. I don't see a tab for a newsletter on that site nor have I received one. I'll ask the help desk about it. A newsletter would be great! My sample bracelets are being reviewed; I expect a report this afternoon. I'm nervously excited.
Diane

5525carin 08-05-2011 10:21 AM

I will say a little prayer for you starlighthill. I hope it will work out and will watch to see. I will also let everyone know how it works out for me.

starlighthill 08-05-2011 01:50 PM

Thanks for the prayer, 5525carin. They rushed my review through and I just received it. I'm very happy. They say I have the chaining down but my loops on Style 2 need to be smaller. The ends on the memory wire need to be more round than mine are. Mine are sorta oval:( That is something to work on. I need to improve the end caps on Style 2. Also on Style 2 there was a loop standing out from the chain. It was where wire was joined. They think I can squeeze it into place with the round nosed pliers. To prevent this from happening in the first place, they suggested I look through the wire for joins and tuck the ends in before pulling it through the drawplate.
I really enjoyed doing the bracelets.
Diane

5525carin 08-06-2011 11:22 AM

Overall it sounds like a pretty good review for your first time. They do look like they are fun to make once you get the hang of it. Do you think that once you have it down it would be reasonable to make 2-4 pieces in a day?

starlighthill 08-06-2011 03:44 PM

I am guessing that it would take me 2 hours to complete a bracelet, if I did it assembly line fashion.
Diane

5525carin 08-08-2011 06:14 AM

That sounds doable :). Keep us posted on your progress. I think my starter kit should be here today. I can't wait. In the past year I have had my eye on a few jewelry books featuring the viking knit, now hopefully I can do it and actually make a little pocket money.

Momnkids96 08-08-2011 06:26 PM

I just read through the whole thread. To wmoore, did you receive your full payout?

5525carin 08-10-2011 12:58 PM

I just got done completing my first one of style #1. It is a challenge to get it going on the mandrel but after a few round it gets easier. I think after doing a few it will be easy. For me, the hard part was pulling it through the draw plate. I can see that a pair of work gloves that have a rubber type coating on the palm may be helpful here. I will post my progress and let you know if I get paid.:)

Titan Chains
 
Hi Ya'll,

I've been trying to look into the legitimacy of Titan Chains. Everything looks fairly promising until you start looking into the fact of whether they actually have a physical/geographical location.

I can't find them on the online white or yellow pages. I typed in their 9792 Edmonds Way #302 Edmonds, WA 98020 address into Mapquest and I get a map for the address, but their name does not come up with the address. When I type in just the name Titancraft.Co, LLC - Titan Chains into mapquest, I get the address 9792 Edmonds Way, Edmonds, WA 98020 (this one does not have the # 302 in it) but that address is associated with a Kathi Moncreaf. It seems she is a restaurant owner.

Any thoughts on this?

AnnaLynn 08-10-2011 04:37 PM

Here is the link to Kathi's business profile

Kathi Moncreaf, Owner - Kathi Moncreaf - Edmonds, WA

snickers2426 08-10-2011 05:16 PM

Why don't you call Kathi and ask her about it. Possibly her husband is running the Titan Chains - that would explain the same address, wouldn't it?? IF she acts like she doesn't know what you are talking about, then I would call Titan Chains and inquire w/them. IF they both act dumb....then run in the other direction, as fast as you can....lol!

5525carin 08-10-2011 08:15 PM

It looks to me as if it is in a plaza type building. They probably just moved from one unit to another.

AnnaLynn 08-11-2011 07:42 PM

Thanks for your thoughts ya'll.
I did think about calling them also.
I also thought about it being a plaza-type building too, but if it was, wouldn't Kathi's address have a suite number also?
Thanks again :)

starlighthill 08-12-2011 04:17 AM

I sent my sample bracelets to the address listed. They received them, gave me a detailed review and returned them along with enough wire to finish the lot. The person I have dealt with via email has been Eric. If you read the previous posts, you will see that Eric Weissman is listed as the owner.

AnnaLynn 08-12-2011 04:04 PM

Sounds promising Starlight :)
Please continue to let us know how it goes.

5525carin 08-14-2011 06:10 AM

I have finished all four of the style #1. I feel they look pretty good. I did stab myself pretty good with a wire under my nail bed, ouch! It kind of reminded me of when I made stained glass windows and would end up with glass slivers on my palms. Who said arts and crafts were safe?

5525carin 08-17-2011 08:22 PM

Is anybody still working on these? I should be ready to send mine in on Friday.

starlighthill 08-18-2011 04:23 AM

Hi Carin,
Yes, I'm working on my first lot after sending samples in for them to review. I hope to have them finished early next week.
Diane
