I love chain mail. This is going to be a series of projects featuring jewelry, fashion items as well as armour! I want to play with both chain and scale mail.
- Chainmail pocket watch chain for a waistcoat.
- Chainmail hoodie for Alfie
- Chain or Scale mail gloves for me
- Scalemail shrug for Kate
- Scalemail dress?
Aluminium would be nice, galvanised steel if not so I don’t have to worry about corrosion.

Tumbling your rings!
The same machine seems to be cheaper on Aliexpress
|Material||Colour||ID||D||AR (ID/D)||Source||QTY||Price (Per Ring)|
So I tried rings fom a few diffeent sources and so far the only ones that haven’t been rubbish have been beadsisters… but they are expensive! As I haven’t got a tumbler either they are still very small snags on the necklaces that I have made so far.
