Ringmail With Plate

July 2005

I wanted to make some Eastern styled ringmail. A common feature of Eastern ringmail and chainmail is an ornate circular body plate. Rather than going to all the trouble of crafting such a plate, I found a brass tea tray which I cut the rim from, drilled appropriate holes and shaped. This plate has upon it what appears to be a fire-breathing chicken, an unexpected bonus.
