Maybe you've seen it at a Renaissance fair with some dude wearing chainmaille armor, maybe you've seen some lady wandering around with some lovely scalemaille earrings or a byzantine bracelet, maybe you have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about but would like to try your hand at a new craft! Would anyone be interested in doing a chainmaille swap?

YES! I've never tried it before but have always wanted to. Summertime would be perfect for this swap since I'll have lots of free time and I know I'll get frustrated...but excited too! Count me in!

I would probably be able to join if send offs were the end of July or August

:'D Yay! Glad to see there is actually interest <3

Would it work out if maybe sign ups were sometime in May but the send out date was around the end of summer or so? That way there would be plenty of time to get supplies and experiment and everything else? Smiley

Also, point wise, what might be good?

I could do mid August. Maybe we could just have one item that we make, that way we don't have to worry about the whole point system.

I'd be interested in a small swap. Or perhaps a mid sized if it was towards the latter end of summer.

count me in! If you wouldnt mind sharing, where do you get your supplies from? i've got the wire tools, for jewlery making, and wire sculpting, but not sure if thats what you use. where do you get the rings from?

i remember freshman year my history teacher wanted us to make chainmaille pieces for a week or two. we all felt like it was slave labor but when everyone put the piece they made together with everyone elses, we were amazed at how awesome it was!

i've always "meant" to get back to learning chainmaille, but never did for some reason. Please keep me updated!

I would definitely be interested as well. I've been weaving for several years now. I'm actually making a 4-in-1 shirt out of 4mm jump rings for the poppet I'm sending in the Plethora of Poppets swap.
