    Chainmail Hacky Sack - How?

    I used to go and buy those cheap hacks that break after a couple kicks and use those as stuffing.

    I would dare to suggest to make rings out of a material that can become magnetized then leave those rings in a strong magnetic field for some time. I use personally use hard drive magnets. Accidentaly left a few of my pliers in the same box as these and they became magnetized. Kinda annoying when your rings don't drop when you release on the pliers

    Any Ideas On Making A Peace Sign....

    I've made a couple peace signs and pretty much it boiled down to using boxchain woven around a metal hoop. That provided the mean for a perfect circle to remain a perfect circle. Then I used small segments of half persian (or byzantine in another) made of 20ga 1/8 rings connected at the center for the peace symbol lines. EDIT: Heres a link to one in the M.A.I.L Gallery, not mine, but I based mine off of this one. http://mailleartisans.org/gallery/pics/31374dscf1262.jpg its on page 3 of the pendent gallery

    Anodized Aluminum Earrings Question

    I take the same approach with my key chains. I only have silver key rings, but the focus is the chain itself, no one cares about the keyring.

    A question about jewelry for men.

    I use mostly the Stanley 6"-8" cutters found at your local wal*mart. They last me for a couple years of heavy cutting before I replace them

    So how do -you- pass the time?

    I mostly watch tv, listen to music, or hang around the M.A.I.L. forums.

    Dragonscale Question

    I've always used rings that fit inside each other and never had problems. Maybe I've been lucky this whole time...
