Chainmaille has been around for ages, as a jewellery technique it certainly creates some of the most attractive pieces. It can be seen even before the 5th Century AD when ancient Celts used this technique for their Armour Chainmaille itself involves the linking of traditional iron or steel rings together. They were pressed so tightly against one another that virtually no spear or sword could penetrate them making them perfect for battle.
There were different techniques for the chainmaille piece depending on where it would be worn on the body. There were specific pieces for the thighs, legs, shoulders and chest areas. Ancient Chainmaille techniques can still be seen at the British museum in London.
