UPDATED! - Have you always wanted to learn to chainmail but were afraid it's too difficult to learn or too expensive?
This is the first in a series of books detailing how to chainmail for beginners with absolutely no experience. Chain mail, also known as chainmail, maille, or chainmaille is a great hobby for any age that doesn't involve just making armor.
You can make almost anything from chainmail. Below are just a few examples of what you can make:
• Jewerly (Bracelets, Necklaces, Anklets, Earrings, Rings)
• Clothing (Bikini tops, Belts, Shirts, Ties)
• Inlays (pictures in your maille)
• And much, much more!
In this beginner's book you'll learn the following:
• A short history of chain mail
• Different rings used and the kinds of metals
• How to open and close rings correctly
• Tools used like pliers and different kinds
• An overview of the family of chainmail weaves
• How to weave 7 of the more common, simpler weaves shown in 3D graphics
• Resources for purchasing rings and tools
6 Starter Projects (3 all new projects added!):
• Women's Choker Necklace
• Full Persian Earrings (new)
• Men's Flat Bracelet
• Byzantine Necklace (new)
• Pouch or Dice Bag
• Japanese Coasters (new)
Chainmail is neither difficult to learn nor expensive. All it takes is a willingness to try something new no matter your age, education, or income!

A Personal Note From The Author:
This beginner's guide blends 10 years of my personal experience chainmailling. When I first started chainmailling, I knew nothing about it except what I'd seen online or in movies; chainmail armor. Not very exciting for the average person but the idea of weaving metal rings into something I could create without any special skills appealed to me. I stumbled across The Ring Lord, a site that sells all kinds of rings in all kinds of sizes, colors, and metals, and I was hooked!
Now ten years later after creating all sorts of projects from maille, some things I wouldn't have thought possible, I wanted to share what I've learned with someone just starting out. This first volume is not meant to cover everything about chainmailling nor does it include dozens of projects. It's meant for someone who's never mailled before or who's only dabbled a little but now wants a simple-to-follow guide with clear instructions and pictures on how to get started mailling immediately with the most common weaves applied to a couple starter projects.
