Hi I'm Desi, and I've been mailing for about two weeks... until I ran out of rings, wire and skin. It's been about two years since I picked it up so I still class myself as a noob. I'm from Melbourne, Australia and a friend linked me to this site. I'm also interested in off loom seed bead weaving and lampworking... which I'm trying to get into.

Okay... :waves: Hi! I new... ish... kinda. Okay, not really. I used to post here a few years ago but blah blah blah [insert long rambling story here] happened and now I'm back under a new name! Swee!

At any rate, I've been mailling for sevenish years now (precious and reactive metals). I'm an addict. I dance. I'm an addict. I post here. I'm an addict. Getting a theme yet?

So, greeting all. And that fun stuff.

~D

Hi!!!!!!!!!! I'm fairly new to chainmaille. I've only been making maille for about a year and have been lurking around here for about as long.

Hi, my name is Shane Gerald Shier, I am 30 years old, and I am addicted to mail...

Er, ok, that is over dramatic, but hey.

I have been mailing for about 3-4 years, though, more so recently.
I started by creating my own maille shirt, and have been addicted ever since. I have been floating around using this site for nearly as long, but haven't started using the boards until recently.

I'm Jeremy, Im 17 and i live in colorado. Ive only been mailling for about a month now and im pretty sure everybody is sick of how much i talk about mailing, yet they praise me after i complete something cool. I learned about mailing for my little sisters ex boyfriend, he stayed for about a week and he brought some chain mailing stuff with him. So i asked him how he did it and since then ive been addicted to it. At the moment im working on a shirt for myself and I only have the front part done and then i ran out of wire, I never thought that it would be this annoying not having any wire to work with. Well ill quit rambling, if anyone lives in colorado, send me a message and maybe we can talk aboot stuff.

Hi, I'm Jennifer. I'm 27 and I live in Oregon with my three children. My dad bought me my first beads when I was nine, and then got me some wire so I could make some ornaments and figurines (bonsai trees!). I've been bead-, leather- and wirecrafting ever since. I've always had fun with chainwork and beads, and didn't start actually making sheets of anything until this year. I design my own jewelry, and sell when I have time, and hope to either figure out how to submit a design to a magazine, or publish a how-to book full of my designs (and if Portland wasn't four hours away, I'd run around up there showing my stuff off).

My favorite place to shop is the scrapyard, you find no end of great junk there that you can turn into an awesome look, and whenever I can't find something, I buy cookies for the guys at the welding shop, and they find it for me.

And when my grandfather-in-law died, he had a whole basement full of jewelry stuff that hadn't been touched since 1948 that the family shipped to me all the way from Long Island---3300 lbs. So if you need crystals that are like the ones from really old rhinestone jewelry, I'm your gal, its not swarovski or anything, but it is the stuff that Hitler buried with bulldozers when he took out the glass factories in Chechoslavakia (I can never spell that). The Chechs then dug it up and sold it to America so that they could have money to rebuild their country after the war. So if anyone's interested, when we're done with the house remodel this fall, I'll start going through storage and posting pics on here of what I have. (I also have 2000 pounds of the big lucite plastic beads that were popular in the fifties in great colors).

I also want to say thanks to whomever came up with the chain-setting for cabs...I now have a way to set some of those crystals that I just couldn't make or buy settings for.

I'm bouncing back from a two year period of burnout. Sophmore, Junior, and Senior year in high school I made a coif and a shirt. My hands were pretty upset at the end of the shirt, so they quit on me. They've either forgiven me or forgotten what happened, so I'd like to get back into the habit while they aren't complaining.

So here is the deal. My account was lost. I started this new one with the same name. IDK if this was an admin action or an accident. If this was an admin action please email or personal message me about the reason for the deletion. If not, i'm back!
