You must be sick in the head to even attempt something like this....:worship: (That was a compliment by the way)...I've tried making micro-rings with 30swg copper and attempted e4-in-1 to no avail...

WOW!
I can only make things out of pre-fab rings and chain and such...what an inspiration to craftsmen/women everywhere! :clap:
Thank you!

You seem like you've done quite a few! Is it hard? And how did you learn?

It's not hard at all! In fact I plan to make some tutorials to show people just how easy it is! :D I originally learned from the internet, various web sites with tutorials of their own :)

The best online resource I found for maille-making is The Chainmaille Board, it's the biggest online community of maillers on the web! Sorta like the deviantART for chainmaille ;)

I gave it to *spiralkitty as payment for modeling it :) I'd rather give away pieces like that than try to sell them :D

Not a bad detail shot. I'd like to see it a bit closer, however. ;)

30 gague Aluminum?! Why not 30 gague Silver?!
