Chainmaille pieces by montanaflash23 Chainmaille pieces by montanaflash23
A dragon inlay i did last year, came out really awesome. Looked a lot cooler in person then it does on the computer. Took a few weeks to make. Uses European 4-1 weave with 20g 1/8" rings.

Very lovely! Did you freehand the design or create it in a program before weaving it?

I created it in a program and than i wove it together using the program as a basis.  i can get the program's link if you'd enjoy.

Nicely done. Bravo for doing an inlay with rings that small. Most of my inlay work is 18g 3/16".

Ya, i don't know why but i love working in small rings. largest small project i've done so far was with 22g 2.25mm, but the final inlay looks and feels sweet.

I appreciate the dedication to make it. was it just the design or was it attached to anything?

It was actually just a simple little wall hanging. There are larger rings along the top of the piece that you can stick a steel rod through to hang it up anywhere.

Starting on chain maille myself been a crafter of larping weapons for a few years now but decided heck time to get some real shit! Eventually going to be doing my own inlay patterns and posting designs so others can use them for neat armor effects. My first ones will be for clothing apparel designs then real armor.

I may have to track this person and make them an offer that they can't refuse.

Ya, it was amazing. There's really nothing that compares to chainmail inlays; simple designs that, like this, can take weeks of opening and closing each ring.

"...weeks of opening and closing each ring." I cringed.

::laughs:: ah man, that's nothing. I have a chainmail shirt that took me six months to create, cutting every single ring, weaving all of the thousands into it. then there's another inlay i haven't posted up yet that has about 11,000-13,000 rings in it, that took about 2-3 months to create.
