    I'm a total geek, nerd, whatever you want to call it. I love geeky things, Felicia Day, Warhammer Fantasy and 40k novels, Dr. Who, etc. etc.

    oh and that terrible picture of me? it's a viking-knit mustache ;p

    creating wedding rings

    I've soldered small 20g rings in a byzantine pattern before. Basically it takes for ever. So much patience. Not sure exactly what you are using, but I soldered all the rings that could be pre-closed first, then I soldered each individual ring and protected the already soldered ones with rio chill gell, protecting the joints. Then, of course you have to file, sane and polish it all.

    New Mailer Questions

    Hey, I am new to this forum, but not new to chainmailling. I was lucky enough to learn in a group. We started a weekly group maybe 6 years ago and taught ourselves everything. It only lasted a few years but I'm still going Anyways, I'd be happy to help with any questions you have that are chainmaille-jewelry related. You can message me here, I think. Also the way I learned was European 4-in-1 & 6-in-1 chain and sheet, Byzantine, Spiral, the common Persians, Helm....and I can't remember the order of the rest but those were my starting points and the ones I use most often. As far as scratch mark goes, deff don't use pliers with teeth as they are pretty unnecessary for jewelry. Time helps a lot because you gain finesse and if all else fails a plastic dip can help for the tools. Something like this: http://www.riogrande.com/Product/Tool-Magic-Coating-for-Tool-Tips/116583?pos=1
