I live in Blue Springs, MO, where I own and operate my own chain mail business, Gothic Nights. I've been making chain mail jewelry and armor since 1998, when my brother gave me a small piece of chain mail (from armor) and I said, "I can do that!" I've been crafting with metal rings ever since. I am currently going to school for Nursing, simply because my jewelry doesn't quite pay the bills...yet. Someday, hopefully, it will. My wife calls me the "Mozart of Chain Mail" since I can just look at a weave and imitate it.
