Hello Everyone. I see there's not a lot of activity here, but I've joined the community anyway. I am eagerly awaiting my first shipment of anodized aluminum rings from The Ring Lord. I ordered the Deluxe Jewelry Kit. I think I've managed to visit every maille site on the net.

I sent hubby on a swordhandling course and now he wants to make armour. Chainmaille has fascinated me for...well, as long as I can remember, so it seems like a natural thing for us to share. He can make armour and I can make jewelry.

It's nice to see some activity around here.

If you have any questions, or just want to show stuff off, it's what we're here for!

Thank you for the welcome. My ring kit just arrived yesterday so I think I'll have some fun this weekend playing with basic weaves before I try to make anything. Last night I worked on closures and I think I can do them okay. Improvement will come with practice. Yup, I'm excited.

Thank you for the welcome. I plan to play with weaves this weekend. I worked on closures last night and I know I will get better with practice.

It's very addictive. I can't knit at the moment due tohaving had surgery on my hand and I really miss it

I understand addiction. Cross stitch was my most recent one. It is time to move on to a new hobby. Maille is beautiful and I haven't done it before so it seems like a logical progression.
