Sixteen pounds of 16 gauge bright aluminum wire arrived on my doorstep this afternoon. In a few months it will be a hauberk.
The design for this one is different from the last one I made. There won’t be an inlay in this one. It should reach to about my knees this time too. It will have full length sleeves too. I’m going to try making a mantle-top style with an integral coif this time.
All together it will be larger and more complete than the last one I made, and since it’s aluminum it should weigh less too. I‘m already having fun making it.
