This photo shows my modeling the headpiece or coif that my wife made. She is the one who is put together the chain mail weave and spent the necessary time to learn this craft.
Photos below show some of the process in making chainmaille armor. My wife started with stainless steal wire and used a hand drill as the engine to spin the dowel that in turn spun the wire that wrapped the wire around the dowel.
The end result was a spring that needed to be cut into rings. The drill was used again to hold a tiny saw blade that was used for the cutting.
Find many patterns to choose from including step by step instructions in some of the books below.
Here is where it all started. Notice the round piece that held the wire. To the right is where the rod was placed and the drill would spin the wire onto it.
Once the rings were ready they were gathered and placed into simple butter containers that are shown here on the table below.

Close up of the 4x4 Pattern
This photo above shows the rings close up and you can see the 4x4 pattern that was used. This piece is fun to bring out whenever we have guests and quickly turns into an interesting conversation as folks ask what it is and want to hold it.
The feel is real smooth and has a nice weight to it. No aluminum here.
It is hard to find rings that are not made from aluminum. You probably have to craft it from scratch like we did in order to use rings from stainless steel.

Dear Chainmail Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
