Quick question.
What exactly makes it Micromaille? (Other than the fact that it's small.) Like, what's the AR and wire Diameter that qualifies it for Micro? (The Glossary didn't really help.)

looks like there is no clear definition, the size of the ID seems to be the main factor, (I used some 1.5mm wire as my mandrel)

Nicely done, and welcome to the world of insanity maille! I finally completed a few jewelry pieces out of micro maille this year. So far my smallest ones are three pairs of earrings out of 26 gauge sterling silver rings with an ID of 1.3 mm.

the guy who got me into this makes micro mail rings, and they're INSANE.
How he does it w/out going nuts, i'll never know. Very Happy

I try not to do too much at once,
btw swearing at your pliers because they've launched the third ring
in a row across the room is normal... you only need to worry when
they start talking back...

(Also a 'energy' drink like Red Bull does wonders for the concentration)
and modifying tools does not hurt either.
