Leftover Niobium

The first time that I ordered titanium, I also picked up some samples of anodized niobium. They had very bright color, were a little bit thinner gauge wire, and had a little bit of spring back when I was working with them.

I made a few bracelets and necklaces, but because it was thinner, and because of the springy-ness of rings it was a little hard to work with. I did have some left over, and decided to spend some time tonight turning them into mobius balls.

I made some 5 ring rainbow balls, some solid paired balls, and some 3 color paired balls. They look like little chainmaille roses all lined up on my table.
