first one's what's known as a "star of peace". a four pointed star with four cranes flying round it. it's a little messy but it's incredibly hard to make and has a lot of hidden paper inside the cranes. the paper used is green on one side and red on t'other

I have instructions for eight interlocked rings as well as the two, but i've never managed to complete them.

Never tried oregami chains but I have carved wooden chains with no breaks in the wood. It's all just one single piece of wood with the links linked.
Think I'm gonna stick the cranes in my list of wallpapers if you don't mind. (With all due credit's of course).

Yeah actually, that's wat gave me the idea.. I use the chains for hanging people's name signs and number signs on the road.

Um, difference between love spoons and my chains is that my chains are actual chains but made of wood, not intertwined artwork like spoon handles.
