I have a suggestion for the riveted section in the articles. Why doesn't someone make an article telling how to prepare different metals for riveting.

I can think of aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, and steel. Explain if they need to be annealed or not and maybe tell how to maintain them.


Personally, I restrict myself to what's historically accurate. Most riveted maille was either iron or mild steel. Now during the roman period there was some copper alloy maille. All of the examples that I'm aware of used extremely tiny rings, may of been the backing for scale. To rivet copper or brass wire rings the process would be identical except that to anneal copper alloy you need to quench quickly rather than allow the rings to air cool.

I have a tutorial that I have written for the Staggered Corduroy Row with Japanese Overlay, with the addition of fiber optic beads or crystals. It has been published in the Bead Inspired Canada on line Ezine, would it be acceptable to also have it available here? I have the pdf with step by step photos, it would fall under the jewelry category. Let me know and I can submit it for your review and/or approval. Thanks:O)

That's a tutorial I've actually been meaning to write. I'm not the articles admin, but I would encourage you to submit it. Just make sure each image is under 100 kb. You can't submit it in PDF format, but the submission form is very easy to use and the instructions are easy to understand and very clear. You could submit it under either Patterns: Ornamental or the Jewelry: Beadwork with Chainmaille.

No, it will just magicaly appear on the home page under *new articles* one day. The articles editor is swamped with his real job right now and there are a slew of new articles waiting for approval. I'll see if anyone wants to step up to the plate and fill in for a bit.

I just took care of it. Unfortunately, I couldn't approve your article, because the pictures aren't working. They're all broken.

In your filing system do the images reside in the same directory as the html page or are they in a separate directory.? I will re-submitt the article and see if that works. :O)

i have an article request for someone with more experience than i have.

an article on tumbling media.

i recently heard that tumbling in steel shot workhardens stuff.
with pins, without pins

some people tumble in walnutshell

white rice
those plastic pellets
the jewelry store suggested ceramic (which i shot down as being ridiculous.. -why- would you put an abrasive in with silver to rub away your valuable metal!?!

anyway.. i use white rice, and i want to get some shot, but i don't know about any of the rest.

an article on this would be supercool x2.

Has anyone written an article on T joints in the euro weaves? or even if there is any use for them?

expanding on my previous post; Does anyone want to know how to put chainmaille loops onto a sheet of E4-1 with the same ring size as the sheet? Also could be a stronger way to layer maille?

here is what I mean. photo taken with my phone. so excuse the bad quality.

Skip, is that a slit in the fabric, or just extra material added on to the outside? I've thought of trying the latter for some belt loops on my hauberk, because the dunlap doesn't like to stay over the belt.


An article on Arrows and Bullets vs. Maille seems to be a must.
