Fascinated by Making Chain Mail Armor

Updated: Apr 17, 2020


Family Buenen are keeping busy with an absorbing project - making chain mail.

Reading Agata, Princess of Iberia aloud to my children re-ignited a passion for making chain mail.


I'm so happy they've found something to do!




Fired up with enthusiasm and inspiration, they have started a coif (head piece) and hauberk (shirt). It has kept them busy for hours every day this week. Hours of making little metal links and joining them together. 🤨


Items used:

1. a coil of wire (plus a drill, pliers and hammer)

2. drill - to twist the wire until it resembles a Slinky

3. tool to snip the wire Slinky into open circles (links)

4. pliers to close the links and to attach together (almost like joining crochet loops)

I hope everyone is keeping busy and happy during this Easter period.
