Chainmail Coif Headpiece Handcrafted by Julie Kindt
Handcrafted Chainmail Coif Headpiece. Composed of 7/16" ID, 14 gauge wire. Fits most heads up to 26" around brow - stretched. Face opening is 6" across forehead x 9 1/2" long down sides of face. Measurement from top middle ring down back of head to bottom of piece is 14". From top middle ring down to forehead edge is 5". This is a shorter, easy to handle coif with bottom of coif covering most of the neck. Measurements are approximate of course, because of the fluid motion of maille with the expansion and contraction of the rings.
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 armor.
