  1. I dabbled in metal wire working for about a year. I was able to conquer making very nice inexpensive rings, and have an inkling of all the work that goes into chainmaille.

  2. So did I, and it is handmade as well!

  3. Impressive. I love the chainmaille set!

  4. I included it because it is amazing! I just hope that maybe I have encouraged someone to buy one.

  5. Hey, that’s my chainmaille chess set! Thank you so much for including it in your top 10 Best Chess Sets. I am truly honored :)

  6. I’m afraid the ex I made it for originally actually thought he could keep it. Go figure!

  7. Luz says:

    I love these, great post.

  8. What happened to the chess set?!?

  9. I’ve never been a big chess player but I’ve seen some boards I’d love to have. As impractical as it is, I like the gold and silver one inch set. I also actually like the amber pieces — if I could just replace the bugs! I made a really pretty ceramic chess set back in the 80s. Wish I still had it.
