Following the suggestion, posting here...It actually took me a while to find anything online but 4-1 tutorials, then I found TRL, then MAIL...started with colored copper/brass [At least, what it claims to be. It's cheap craft wire...] winding around knitting needles, 20g at something like 8mm ID...pliers hardly needed.

On another note, the small punch-discs from TRL that're unreasonably cheap fit well as the captives in CIR of 20g 4.25mm ID...

I'm new, posting here.

I don't make my own chain mail but I do use it on occasion in my jewelry creations. I use a lot of wire though, and like to learn as much as I can about the materials I'm using...and techniques!

Hi everyone. I'd spent the past few years feeling like I didn't have any creative outlet, then a few weeks ago I started experimenting with E4-1

using some rings I found lying around the house. I've been lurking around here and browsing Phong's site and learning all I can. Thanks for all the information and insight, and I'm looking forward to more mailling!

There are a vast number of people here that can help you with just about any problem you might have. There probably aren't many problems you might encounter that somebody here hasn't had before, so feel free to ask.
