...so I told my doctor "I need your help I have this terrible coif!" :D
Sorry, I had to do it ;)

Anyways, this is one of my earlier pieces. It seems a bit largish but the styrofoam head it's on is small so it throws it off. Made with galvanized steel.

Oh, wow, you must have patience :lol: Do you do this for fun, or do you sell it? Or both, since that's most likely possible :bucktooth:

lol I know what you mean, whenever I did chainmaille at school I would have to hold my loose rings in a sandwich bag and I'd always joke about how I was carrying around a baggy full of addictive substances
