Looking for someone to make copper chain mail shirt

Try the Trading Room section? If you like we can move the topic for you.

 

Also, copper is not easy to weld, though some may be able to do it for you. Bronze is easier, apparently, and still has the rosy glow, just a bit paler. Also, copper (and bronze) is heavy, even heavier than steel, so make sure you discuss final weight with both maker and recipient. Good luck!

Any idea on size rings and size of the body?

 

I have copper is a little on the heavy side and with 14 gauge 3/8" machine cut your looking at nearly $40 per square foot just in materials.

I honestly do not feel copper is a good material for chainmail. It's rather expensive compared to something like galvy or stainless, and often times copper is quite weak, meaning you'd have to find some way to either meld the rings together, or have a really low AR for the piece.
