How do you make chain mail?
To make chainmail (armor or jewelry), hundreds of small rings must be linked together, one at time, by hand, to make a sturdy but flexible mesh. Typically, each ring is joined with four others, in a type of chainmail that is commonly known as “European four in one”.
Many other patterns are used as well both for armor and jewelry. Feel smarter??
