This is a beginner level chainmail and leather kit with tutorial that will guide you step-by-step through making a chainmail coaster backed with leather. The tutorial includes a template for cutting and punching the leather.
The kit is available with either plain or mixed color aluminum rings. You can also choose between a single coaster kit, or a kit for a set of 4 coasters.
You do not need to be experienced in either chainmail or leather for this project. The tutorial assumes you are familiar with making the common European 4 in 1 chainmail pattern. If you are not familiar with European 4 in 1, there are various free tutorials online (I suggest this one: http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.php?key=140)
Materials included in this kit are (per coaster): • (~300) 16SWG 1/4" ID Aluminum rings (choice of mixed colors or plain silver) • Black leather, cut and punched • 48” waxed cotton cord (1mm)
Tools you'll need for this project are: • Chainmail pliers (2 pairs) • Leather needle (optional) • Elmer’s glue (optional)
You may not resell, share, give away or forward the tutorial to anyone in any form.
