Craft Night: Chain Maille

Hey Lovelies,

So tonight I decided I was going to have a personal Craft Night. I wanted to learn something I didn't know how to do so I decided how to teach myself how to do Chain Maille.

What is Chain Maille?
Chainmaille (also known as chainmail, or simply maille) is typically armor or jewelry made by connecting metal rings to one another. The word maille derives from the French word maille (mesh), which comes from Latin macula (mesh of a net). Creating something out of maille involves a few steps:

  • Wrap metal wire around a rod to make a coil.
  • Cut the coil, creating individual "jump rings."
  • Using pliers, link the rings—one at a time—into a pattern.
Now that you kinda now what I'm talking about I hope you can enjoy the pictures from my adventure.
