wow. that is just amazing. I am guessing possibly hmm.. around 800 links to acomplish that thing. I know I am probably way off on my guess. Math and estimating is bad bad for me. *chuckles* That is just fabulas. And I intend to check out your chainmail shirt. Oops. almost typoed shirt leaving the r out. heheh. But seriously. Do you have a shop perchance? or visit Renfests? That is just fantastic work and smoot with the links. I have dabbled in jerewlry wire and beading. But to bend that gauge of wire is tough work. you would have to have some strong thumbs and wrist. :D

Thanks! :D I think the ring count is actually 444 based on a quick calculation, or close to that at least. :)

I don't have a shop, and would love to visit some ren fests and set up a booth but the closest decent ren fest for me is 4-5 hours away. I'll figure it out, though, that would be a lot of fun :nod:

Bending this wire wasn't too bad, the coiling process doesn't require too much strength for the majority of the coil, it's when you get down to the end of the coil that it becomes a pain :D Biggest problem for me was cutting such small rings, you can see that the diagonal cutters I used were really oversized and the rings don't have a very flush closure.

Check out a jewlers shop. It can be rather expensive. But they have what they call a Jump ring cutter. It coils wire and then a smooth quick cut down the rod with a mini saw blade. But for the cheep way. Grab a dremel tool and one of the metal cutting disks. Saw down one side of your bound rings. Might want to retro fit your drill with a wooden down the size you want. Just a few idea's to ease your time and maybe sore hands in the future. Who knows. *Grins*

Dremels were actually the first method I tried ;)

Dremel blades didn't last too long, I went through one every day when I used that method, but I'd definitely like to get a jump ring cutter someday when I have some extra cash :nod:

lol "master" :rofl:

This one took me a lot longer than it should have. I originally wanted to make it out of a nice shiny 20 gauge aluminum, but halfway through making it I ran out and had to go pick up more from Wal Mart only to find that they no longer carried it. So I had to start over with the duller 20 gauge galvanized steel, which is also much heavier. If I'd had as much time then as I do now I could have had it done in a matter of days, instead it took me a couple weeks :hmm:
