Chainmail in belt
« on: Dec 04, 2012, 02:29 PM »
So I saw the belt by Barbarossa Kad,


And my girlfriend has recently taken up chainmail making as a hobby, we were wondering what the opinion is on making a belt like this, but with chainmail instead of the rope.(thin rings, so pretty dense, not 8mm rings)

Go for it!  Chainmail is perfectly acceptable as an accent piece per CRLs, and chainmail in a belt of a similar design would be awesome.

As far as I know, that is perfectly fine. I think i've seen one or two guys with something similar to that actually. Go for it!  :D

I don't know the crow but I too make chainmail if u do a belt I suggest a sturdy metal the act if pulling the belt through loops and such can stretch the rings warping them and bracking the belt. I learner the hard way. Lol oh and make sure the rings are either backed with a piece of material or closed flush the metal alone can snag fabric really good

I would suggest 18 gauge, 4 mm. rings, if you're looking for small and sturdy. Otherwise, I'd suggest 16 ga, 6 mm. rings, for something a bit bigger, but also sturdy.

What type of pattern will she be using (4-in-1, 8-in-2, etc)?

I have no idea yet, we're currently most working on the weapons, because the armors still have to come in.

There's a guy on Deviantart that has a chain malie gutair strap but the maile is attached to a fabric(maybe leather) backing to act like padding

Several of them actually :p

And we'll be using an actual belt as backing probably, for strength and shape.

So I got a link from someone through my boyfriend Higgs, which is this one:

http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-chainmail-necklace/

I already did a small bracelet like this, so I was familiar with making it.
Though I hadn't tried broading it, in the end, that was easy too :P

I used 2.0x9.8 mm rings.





I still need to attach the Chainmaille to a leather belt. When it's finished I will post some more pics :)

Awesome European 4-in-1! The only suggestion I would make is to make sure that it is attached to the belt at several points or you could have problems with the chainmail sagging/pulling in spots. Good luck!  :)
