Oh this sounds fun! I love chainmaille but my worry is I dont have very high quality links and cant afford the good ones. Im worried that my partner might not like something that will eventually turn you green.

*shrugs* my favorite ring (copper and anodized niobium) turns me green and I love it regardless x)

Ohhh i have a friend on here who does LOTS of Chain mail but her account is new because he old one got lost and her internet connection isn't the best. I'm going to show her this swap if you think you might be willing to let her participate. she does some amazingly detailed pieces and I'm sure any one would love to swap with her! i have an example of some of her stuff. her handle is "craftybaby"

This is a piece she has made to show you that she can chain even if her account is new.

Illiamdra, I'm fine with her account being new. I checked craftybaby's profile, and she's been a member for 30 days. Once she has 15 posts, she is more than welcome to send me a questionnaire.

Craftybaby, your work is beautiful. At this second, you're 4 posts short of 15, and if I'm not mistaken, Craftster's swap rules state you must be a member for 30 days, have 15 posts. Once you have 15 posts, I really would love it if you'd PM me a questionnaire.

I'm glad I had a closer look at this swap. At first I thought chainmaille , no way could I make that. Then I checked out some of the links and thought hmmm chainmaile jewelry, I could do that. I love dabbling in new crafts. I also like the idea of a longer ongoing swap. I need something to fill up a slot for a while. (I have a tendency to sign up for antoher swap as soon as one has feedback).   I like that the supplies could be got from a hardware or craft store. At first I was worried i'd have to order online.

I have a bag full of old wire. It's plastic covered copper in lots of colors. Would it work for making chainmaiile links or would it be too pliable? I also ahve some tinted metal wire from michaels/joanns. Would that work? Could hte colored stuff be worked in perhaps as an embellishment?

I envy you right now. You have enameled copper. It does work for chainmaille. You just have to be careful of the ends.
