  • ChainMail

    OK I've been thinkning about getting back into making chainmail things. (head pieces, hand flowers, belts, bags, and maybe trying my hand at larger items here in the near future...)

    So here is a question to all you wonderfull people:D would anyone out there be interested in buying chainmail??? ( not that I'm asking you to, but more of trying to find out how much interest is out there for it)

    Thanks!!!

    Chainmail

    Actually, we have quite a bit of chainmail here in the "castle", skirt, vest, headpiece. There is an armorer in town here that makes it and does a terrific job, you can't wear it for too long it's so heavy but it looks good.

      I would buy chainmail if anywhere that I knew of around where I live sold it. I have always liked it for reasons unknown to me. BB.

          I'd be interested. I have a small group of friends with whom I go to Renaissance Faires, and we're always looking for cool, new things to add to our costumes. We tend only to go to two a year, so we wear the same outfits. We tend to get a little tired of them so we accessorize!

          Now if only I could learn how to sew...

            I love my chainmail head piece. It's got little purple beads and an amythest dropping from the front. If only it was a little more comfortable!

                Thanks for the input guys. :D I'm still pondering the idea.

                Chain is not all that hard to make, just takes alot of time and all that. You take wire, and wrap it around some sort of dowl rod depending on what size links you want, you cut the rings off, and put them together... thats about it.
