  1. Chaosity - yeah I'm the UK but it's hard to find good niobium here so sometimes I buy from the US. sir_osis - thanks it is indeed black granite. A few years ago my mother had her bathroom floor tiled in black granite and she saved the left overs for me.

  3. Update: The Miss Universe contestant didn't make it into the final (I think maybe she wasn't skeletal enough!!!) but she did buy the bracelet. :(Now I'll have to make another as I planned on keeping that one!

    what is the best weave

    I've used both HP3in1 ans HP4in1 for wrapping coins and cabs but this one would work well too: http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=5179

    Here's a dragon keychain based on Derailed great tut on MAIL. Mine varies a little as I used different ring sizes and had to adjust the connections between head and neck. 1.2mm BA 5mm ID, 0.9mm bronze 5mm, 4mm & 3mm ID with TRL's small stainless steel scales. and a large split ring. BTW I have loads of these large split rings for trade.

    This should be fun.

    Go for the more delicate pliers for aluminum. For the Hauberk I've seen some awesome shirts built from HP Sheets so you could reinforce the sides, shoulders and even the front and back with some Half Persian sheet. Although the weak spots are often under the arms but you don't want anything to bulky there. Have fun.

    Maille and wire work dragons

    I had seen a maille dragon somewhere before (long ago) using Box chain for the body and always wanted to make one. I just couldn't for the life of me figure out how to make a stable and nicely shaped Dragon head out of maille (without it being really big). So I started messing with wire, after a few prototypes I finally got something I thought would work. I also had a little inspiration from my brother who used to make wire dragons which were kinda skeletal and had soldered spikes on them.

    Maille and wire work dragons

    Bronze is harder than copper but it was better for this job because it holds it's shape better. I had to hammer the copper to harden it up a bit.
