Join me, as I craft an entire chainmaille shirt made of copper rings in just over 66 hours real time. This was my first pass at creating such a large piece of chainmaille and I did not follow any templates. I simply ordered 25lbs of copper rings and sat down in front of the camera to capture the adventure.

There were 10 days of prep work that is not shown in the time lapse. I prepared as much European 4 in 1 patterns before hand so I could concentrate on weaving.
All copper rings and small buckles were purchased through The Ring Lord. Highest praise to The Ring Lord for providing their amazing service. Huzzah!
Copper ring specs:
400oz of Saw Cut Copper 16g 1/4" rings
Assembled in European 4 in 1
Roughly 2 - 3oz of copper set aside for extra projects
Dragon mask specs:
Wintercroft template, several large cereal boxes, super glue, airbrush.
