Hello, My name is Jason, and I'm a maille-aholic. I've been sober for 5 minu... for about 3 seconds. I've been mailling on and off for about 10 years mostly jewelry, but I like to make a nice hauberk every now and then.

Normally I post on TRL (used to) but after coming back 3 years later... that place has changed so much and it seems really slow now, so I decided to reactivate my account here and peruse these forums.

Would there be a better way to have the newbies introduce themselves than posts on a forum? I realize that anything to contain that many people would have to be massive, but there should be a way to introduce one's self to the community.


If at first you don't succeed, try a different aspect ratio.

I'm not sure what you mean? This thread is one way to introduce yourself. You can also post a pic of some maille you made in the Gallery or in Gallery Discussion. Or ask a maille related question in Knitting Circle. And lots of other ways. It's really up to the individual how they want to introduce themselves. Smile

I want to hear the story.

Oh, and the board/insists/that I'm a ringlet, even though I'm sure I've got more than ten or so posts somewhere...

I guess this is the most delayed intro ever, too... seeing as how my join date is over eight years ago Smile

I thought I could write something about me. I'm 24 years old and come from germany. My first encounter with maille was some years ago, because I wanted a chainmaille, but wasn't happy about the quality and looks of the ones I could buy (the prize wasn't appealing, too).
But after that I didn't do very much. Mainly because I had a lot to do for school and didn't really thouht about other thins to make than armour.
Some weeks ago I had the idea to make a bracelet. At first I bought Rings. After the first one, I remembered some other weaves, but not very much. I wanted more. So I serched in google, bought wire and inally found this site. At the moment, I try to follow the tutorials, sometimes I have a crative idea what to do with the things I learn, but still learning and trying, not only the waves but how they work and what they have in common with others, so that I can someday be creative without help ^^.

Hi all, I'm Eve from New Zealand.

I'm a designer/jeweller/wearable art maker, so my interests lie mostly in fairly simple weaves that I can use and/or modify in the construction of my designs...

I'm allergic to knitting.

I have two dogs.

Hello all. My name is Jake, and I'm currently residing in VA. At college a friend introduced me to chainmaille, and I had been looking for the right craft hobby for a long time. I placed an order on TRL and have been immensely enjoying it so far. I tried to submit some of my work but the picture quality was too low (cell phone camera). Hoping to improve and learn, and eventually sell my pieces at craft fairs and the like. Nice to meet all of you.

@Blitzcat21
From one newbie to another; welcome ^^
Maybe this thread can help you with the photo-problem; http://www.mailleartisans.org/board/viewtopic.php?t=15672

I still have the Problem, that I have to take a lot of Pictures from one work, until I have a picture that pleases me. (most of the time I give up and take one that's okay ^^)
