Now THIS is chain maille

Chain maille chess set by artist David Austin

I've never done chain maille. I love the look, and I might attempt it someday, but I suspect my efforts would be limited to making a few decorative links connecting some interesting beads. (I would also need way better ergonomic pliers than I have now.)

I've seen some wildly elaborate chain maille necklaces, but nothing approaching the decorative sculpture that David Austin does. Check out this ArtFire feature.
