Custom Chainmaile Shirt


A client commissioned a custom chainmaile shirt from me with a row of blue trim at the edges. This was the result. A nice young lad named Ravel was kind enough to model it for me. All of the images were provided by Jennifer of Jen Martin Studios.
In this second picture you can more easily see the blue trim around the collar, the edges of the sleeves and the base of the shirt.
The shirt was made from 16ga 3/8" stainless steel rings.

!!Beetle!!


My daughter and I decided to take part in the local Procession of the Species here in Bellingham & didn't have a costume. Necessity being the mother of invention, I was inspired by some empty compressed-paper barrels I found at a used construction supply store to create a beetle costume. It was, however, insufferably hot on the nice sunny day the event took place on. Photos by Jennifer Owen of Jen Martin Studios.

Kid's Chainmail Shirts


I figured I should finally share these shirts that I made for my boys. I don't remember when I made each, but it was a couple years back. The oldest boy's (the one with the Mohawk) shirt was initially a vest and I later taught him how to construct maile and he added the sleeves on his own. Both are made from galvanized steel using the European 4 in 1 pattern. All photos by Jennifer Owen of Jen Martin Studios
