Chainmail again  

Friday, August 31, 2007


I found somewhere mentioned a website (culturejewelry.com) where they sell some chainmail patterns for download and got curious to see what they have available. For registering for their newsletter you get to download a free pdf of the spiral weave. Here is below the result. I was pleasantly surprised as it's very easily and nicely explained in the pdf file. Made this small chain last night while watching tv. I think this even surpases the boxchain or the byzantine in how easy it is.
These rings gotta be the smallest I've ever worked with! The chain is really thin on my wrist, even though the camera magnified it enough to show all the non-perfectly closed rings, lol!

Btw, if you register to their forum (members.culturejewelry.com), you get to download a second free tutorial. You can see the tutorial on this link only after you're registered there.

    Hi there.. interesting site you have here. I found it because I was looking for wirework tutorials and see that you are interested in chainmail. There is a great free forum for maillers. Lots of information there, free for the taking. It's operated by a Canadian supplier of rings for chainmaille.

    Also, there are tons of free tutorials you can get without having to subscribe to anything.

    check out these two sites if you are intersted in Chainmaille:

    Hello from a French Dawandian living in Turkey! This is a fabulous weave, and you've inspired me to give chainmaille a go...Your creations are fantastic! I hope I get as good as you!
