Yeah- that's the one craft that I consistantly persue. Here's an excellent site to get you going: http://www.chainmail.com/
If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. :)

If you have any specific questions, I may be able to help. I actually just posted about my own chainmaille projects.

We wind our own wire, then score and break it so there are no pointed edges, but you can find loose links on Ebay...then all you need is pliers, gloves and tons of time...

How does one score and break the links? I've just been using tin snips, which work pretty well but tend to be time consuming and hard on the hands/arms.

Re:
well that's pretty much what I do...you can use a dremmel tool to score though.

You're welcome :) And thank you! I just remember how hard it was for me to find GOOD / easy to understand and navigate pages when I first looked at chainmail, so I figured I should put some of my bookmarks in here since this was added to the FAQ/Memory section.

chain mail
I found my instructions on www.arador.com
they have a very good tutorial. Lots of pics, as well as other patterns such as plate, brigandine, lamellar, and leather. So if you get bored with chain they have plenty of other really interesting "links". Just my two cents.
