European 1 into 9 King's Mail With a Twist »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Rock / Punk, Victorian / Steampunk, Goth, Geeky
What was your inspiration?
One word: Beowulf.
What are you most proud of?
I'm proud that I was able to make this with some metal wire and some old pliers lying around the house. I'd like to get better tools and materials but, for what I had, I think this came out pretty good.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I started with using a simpler pattern (European 1 into 4 mail) but this wire was too thin for it and it easily came apart. I'm going to use thicker wire next time. Another option might be smaller links.
