We will start with a simple neck chain in the box chain 'knit':

Then how about a bracelet:

And we could go with a cat collar:
Those were done in stainless steel.

Then we can look at some of my works in other materials, like my dice bags:

Starting top left and going clockwise, stainless again, aluminum, brass, and silicon bronze.

Or my coif: made in aluminum and modeled by me, as was the bracelet and the neck chain:

As for works in progress, I do have a few pieces in various stages of build.

SleepingDawg: You ever make any of that chain-mail for divers?
Scuba divers who go into areas where there B sharks often wear chain-mail to keep all their limbs.
These suits ain't cheap.
