Thank you for the warm welcoming!
Yes, my city is very beautiful, thank you! Probably you would visit it again one day! Wink Where did you study, by the way?

I made several items using Pinterest pictures as referrals, if I find the place here where I could share those, I surely will)

The question I have so far: could anyone advise if there's an online store (or another place with shipping) where I could find jump rings made of 14 or 15 gauge stainless steel or brass wire?

Thank you Smile

I actually studied in Moscow at the Pushkin Language Institute, but spent a week in St. Petersberg and loved every day. I hope to get back some day, but now that I have kids it is a little harder.

There are a couple different places that ship rings. Beadsisters is out of the UK and might be the closest that I know of to you.

Then you should wait for some time and take your kids with you! Wink

Thank you for the link! They really seem to ship for reasonable prices.

Hello, everybodeeeeeeee!

Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) brought me to chain maille. For Christmas this year, I want to make my whole D&D group those keychains with dice caged in rings. Researching different weaves for this endeavor is what brought me to this website--notably, the Library.

I do all kinds of crafts. I'm starting to realize my life's main goal is to try every kind of craft out there within my means. I was certain the "Knitting Circle" was going to be a subforum for chain maille crafters who also love knitting! Hello, that's a place for me!

I'm really, really new at mailling. Just this week I bought two pairs of pliers that don't have teeth. Just this morning I used my new pliers for the first time to make my first box chain. My box chain looks amazing. I see all these cool looking pictures online, but, WOW, having it right there in my hand blew me away. Pictures do not do this artform enough justice.

Thank you for having this place on the web for newbies like me to get information.

Hello,

I am somewhat new to weaving my own chainmail, I have experience with butted rings and have recently gotten into working with riveted rings and am loving it!

I am new to this group. I have been playing with jump rings and chainmail for a few years. I am interested in expanding my skills.

Hi!

Total newbie here.
Been skirting the edges of LARP for many years, and have now been dragged into Cosplay.
We've done plenty of outfits, so are looking to branch out into Maille.

So far, we've made a small patch (couple of inches square!) of Euro 4-1 from 12ga (2mm) rings (15mm outer-diameter).

Will be looking to make lots more!

So ... HI ALL!

We look forward to seeing your creations. I tried a pouch my first time out and it was a failure so you are ahead of me out of the gates many years ago. Can't wait to see what you will accomplish. Feel free to ask questions when you have them.

Thanks for the Welcome Smile
So, where do you recommend for n00b advice?
Specifically, what size rings to use, and where to get them? UK here, so struggling to find a decent supplier. Will be investigating making our own rings, later.
