    Building my first chaimail armor (eventually a suit). And airsoft, archery, digitally designing things.

    In process of building my European 4in1 shirt (armor), and plenty of jewellery pieces!

    Riveted Hauberk help

    So after mailling for four years now, I have come to the crazy conclusion that I need to make a battle ready, authentic hauberk. For both costume and SCA purposes. My reference style will be of this: In particular, that of a crusader. So my question is, are there any good places to buy riveted mail, and if not, what would be my second best option? Also, I'm debating materials. I was thinking of using mild steel for authenticity, but how would that compare to stainless steel in regards to strength and weight?

    Costume Coif w/ Inlay Update 4

    Leather chin strap perhaps to take the weight off of the back?

    Large Scale Question - Which To Pick?

    Ok, so under the arm pit, it just takes a 90* turn for the sleeves like a regular shirt?

    Scale Gauntlet

    Do you attatch every ring to the leather, or only at key locations on the vambrace?

    Solid Sterling Silver JPL3 8g Collar

    It's something that would collect dust for sure, but it's the same with shirts. Eventually someone will find and buy it.

    The Sea Myth

    Stunning! The colors work so well with one another! Is that copper and bronze?

    Large Scale Question - Which To Pick?

    Finished vest. Still need to add some tweaks to it including the cross and adding sleeves. But I'm not a hundred percent sure the best way on how to attatch the sleeves to allow the best possible movement and strength. Any help?

    Pricing my products

    Im still a begginner. So I price it at materials x2 plus what Im happy with. I agree with the others though. Once i go around looking for customers, I'll definitly do it at materials x2 + $10/hr
  11. Ive been mailling since october, and have no plan on stopping! It started as just armor, then the art group im in asked if I could make a few bracelets. Since then, Ive spent over $500 and made $150. Ive even started my own business! I think I'm doing really well considering im not out trying to get customers as Im currently getting my inventory up.
