Maillers by zikes Maillers by zikes
A couple of maillers doing what we do :)
Me on the left and ~Adaven on the right.

~Adaven's mom taught at a school where they held a yearly renaissance festival, and thought it would be fun to have us come in and set up a booth showing off our chainmaille. I even brought in some raw wire and a corded drill (yeah, it's not period, I know :roll:) and showed them the entire process from start to finish to turn wire into a finished necklace.

What do my pretty eyes see? It looks like you have your local DA fanclub here... :rofl:






... Can I be a groupie? :giggle: :lmao:





Now seriously: At first, due to my obvious blindness ;) , I thought you were sitting at the table writing some Christmas cards to mail them somewhere... but then I realised my mistake :rofl: (ok, you can laugh too, I allow you :P :P :P).

hmmmm groupies...:plotting:

lol I can't blame you for coming up with something like that, chainmaille's an even weirder thing to be doing ;)

"What the heck? Are they writing Christmas cards? Wait...no...and what's with that weird hat?! What the heck are they-OH! It's chainmaille!! What a couple of weirdos :roll:"

It's not that weird for me really :D
I actually have a friend who is now 17 years old and about one and half a year ago had made his first chainmaille. It took him a coupple of months and about 8 kilograms of rings. Now he's selling it because he wants to make another - better one ;) He makes various types of armour recycling things you'd never expect to be useful for it but they are not made for real fight - those he buys from his father's friend who is a blacksmith (and recently an armourer ;) )
I must say that local Tolkien-maniacs are quite interested in such stuff, so I observe a revival of such crafts as armour making etc. There is quite a big market for such goods - knights' guilds are becoming more and more popular :)
