Nice! Did you make all of those pieces?

I've been known to maille a bit in my day. I'll post some pictures soon, most likely, though it'll just be pictures that I already been posted over in the motherland before my long absence.

yup
after a while of just making my own stuff (which i still do) i started making bracelets for friends and such... then i realized that i wouldn't be a jerk if i started charging my friends for them.

Chain Maille (armor and jewelery) Thread IMG_3723

my color pallet is pretty limited right now cause I bought a few colors to try out (2 kinds of blue, purple, red, black, and black rubber) but ill have all the colors of the rainbow once i get a job Rolling Eyes

my current project, a coif, wasnt planned... it was just cause i didnt have much else in mind to make, and i hadn't done it before.
Chain Maille (armor and jewelery) Thread IMG_3745
the weave is expanded circle... and im not very fond of it really. its too abstract and up to how much expansion i want or dont want. which i guess makes it really useful, but i like being able to just make something and not plan out every expansion. Im at the point now where i stop expanding and make it look more like a beany than a yarmulke

This jewlery is... amazing. You all are very talented.

I built myself a chainmaille hauberk, but when I did, I built it for a 42 inch chest max, not expecting to grow much, sadly, 2 more inches and I wont fit into it anymore, i'll have to rip out the center rings and add more weave.

woow, didn't know spare goggles was still around, until I got an email saying there was a response.
very nice Kedric Razz What gauge and ID did you use?
Now after wearing my armor a couple times, I look at yours and think of how nice it would be to wear something so loose... Even plate armor was more flexible than mine because it was articulated.

So, my last post in this thread was in October...
On December... 12th I believe, I got in a very large order of rings, with all sorts of colors.
In mid February I started listing things on Etsy, and slowly but surely thats been going really well. I still make lots of bracelets, but my focus lately has been wrapping marbles. They've been pretty popular.

Wow, I really like your "Forars Kaede" weave. I just used a standard 4-in-1 weave with i'm sure a few mistakes here and there Wink.

Its 16 guage mild steel butted obviously, not rivited like I'd want if I were actually gonna get shot at with arrows...I'll make rivited eventually, or maybe buy some, but for now this'll have to do. I'm a fighter in the combat sport "Dagorhir". I'd call it a larp, but I cant recall the last time I saw anyone roleplay anything, soo.... xD
Basically we just fight and fight and fight. generally 100-200 fighters per battle, larger event may attract a couple thousand, nothing major really, just little spats in comparison to real dark-ages war. My personal unit, which I'm proud to have founded, boasts about 25 members, but were lucky if we get 10 to show up to a battle. Rome is generally the driving force, bringing 80+ fighters sometimes.

You can find my unit at Varangia.tk. We're based in Maryland. (also, the helm is handmade too, got the tail of my friends horse. Razz
