Thank you for your sympathy in re: my downstairs neighbor. You are so right: people are not built for sitting still! I could cope better if my neighbor went through the proper channels to complain, but his banging on his ceiling just scares me witless and makes me wonder what his ceilings must look like by now.
I love chainmail. I'm great with metals and stink at everything else so this fit in really well with me. If you want some tips on cheap startup let me know. I make my own jumprings and it's so much cheaper than buying them and maybe adds 10 min to each project at the most. Plus I can make awkward sizes if needed where store bought only come in a few sizes. 1484 days ago
