Forming a Something


The scale mail really is coming along, this is the product of a days linking. The rings are really quite solid, and using the pliers all day means me thumbs feel like they’ve dropped off.


After trying both, blunt nosed pliers definitely make life easier then needle nose ones.


This is going to be part of a fairy costume, scale mail top and skirt with under-bust corset.


  1. OMG! That is AMAZING! When I was back in school I started doing a chain mail with split rings, so I can understand about the hands falling off. Where did you find the scales? WOW! I'm in AWE!

  2. Thanks, I made them at work so Denise (boss) found all the materials, I know she ordered them off the internet somewhere. Apparently they were pretty pricey, definitely not a cheap hobby :(

  3. Hi you!
    It makes me laugh that you call me the boss when you manage me 90% of the time.

    I'm going to hit complete meltdown when you go :-)

    I got the rings and scale from 'TheringLord.Com'

  4. Do you know ....I'm quite fancying a scale mail top to go with my (as yet unmade) corset!!! X
