Details of swap:
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!
For The Great Chainmaille Swap, we will be learning a new craft, or improving on one we already know. For this swap, you may use any combo of jump rings, beads/embellishments, wire, scales, etc. While doing a basic 1-1-1-1-1 is acceptable, it would be great if you took the time to learn at least one weave
This is a FOUR point swap, and we will have all summer to craft due to a mixture of people's schedules and also the fact that chainmaille usually takes a bit of time to pick up and get used to. Extras are allowed, but not required. If you want to do more than four points, I'd recommend talking to your partner to see if they want to do the same, but if you just want to spoil them, go for it.
Large= 3 points
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

-Small = $10 or less
I'm asking that you post in the thread once per week, at least once sign ups are closed, okay?
If you are going on vacation/out of town/to your own funeral/etc, please let me know. I'd really appreciate it to know you're still alive (unless you PM me saying you're attending your own funeral, that might worry and confuse me).
