About: Hello, my name is Matthew, I have 9 siblings. I LOVE Woodworking (DIYing) and me and my family are the Galicinski Family Band. Me and my brother Micah love composing music, please check us out on youtube and s…

In this instructable I will go through two ways of making Chain Mail and you will learn the fastest way of make it.

Note this is for creative or decretive uses.

Step 1: Where to Buy the Rings

Go to TheRingLord. The rings you want are the 14g 3/4".

If the link is not working the rings you want are the Machine Cut Bright Aluminum Jump Rings 14g 3/4".

Step 2: The First Way of Making Chain Mail

You are going to start by fully opening about 20 rings.

Then fully close 20 other rings.

You will end up doing this step throughout the process.

Step 3: First Way Step 2

Then put some of the closed rings in a row, then connect them with the opened rings. You can put the closed rings on a thin metal rod (look at the photo) then connect them with the opened rings.

Then repeat it again. and again... and again... and again until you are done for the day.

Step 4: The Second Way to Make Chain Mail, Step 1

You are going to start with opening and closing lots of rings as before.

Then take one open ring and four closed rings, put the closed rings into the open ring and close it. You have just made a star.

Step 5: The Second Way to Make Chain Mail, Step 2

Now make tons of stars then connect them all together(look at photo). Then make the same amount that you made before, but this time connect the side and the bottom.

Keep doing this until you have finish as much as you want to do today.

Step 6: Chain Mail

The first way I showed on making Chain Mail takes a lot longer then the second way on making Chain Mail.

I would suggest the second way.

In making chain mail you will want to leave enough room to take it off and on.
