Artisan Galvanized Steel Chainmail Maille Diamond shaped Keychain Set of 2
Artisan Galvanized Steel Chainmail Maille Diamond shaped Keychain or Fob Set of 2. This keychain is a nice compact size to fit in pocket or purse. Measures approximately 4" long including the stainless steel split keyring. Rings are handwound with galvanized steel wire, cut individually and assembled using pliers. Please note that chainmail is a fluid material and does not remain in the diamond shape when dangling from your keys.
My Maille is entirely handmade by me. I wind the wire on a mandrel, cut each link by hand and assemble the piece with pliers using both ancient and modern patterns in my designs. I make what is called butted or butt-ended maille. This means the ring is closed by lining up the ends of the link one against the other. The rings are cut individually using a bolt-cutter with the ends of each link forming a double-sideways V at the closure. This type of ring closure seems to work well for maille armour.
This is an original piece of work created by me in the U.S. All images, text, artwork Copyright ©Julie Kindt.
