Creative Souls Academy Chain Maille Armor

Chain Maille is usually associated with armor, like this one in the photo above. You can learn how to create this Chain Maille Armor at MetalSmithing.WonderHowTo.com. Creating Chain Maille can, also, be as simple as starting with a basic bracelet. It is as easy as opening and closing jump rings. Many patterns and techniques exist, here are some for inspiration.

What is Chain Maille?
Wikipedia decribes Mail (chainmail, maille) as a “type of armour consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh.” It is really “the results of linking metal rings together”. Chain maille creations can include armor, vests, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, chains, etc.

Make Your Own Chain Maille Bracelet
