Phong's Chainmaille Tutorials
Phong has been tackling some really brain-bending weaves. Definitely worth a look, especially for advanced students.

Kusari's Lair
Very, very nice 3D rendered patterns and tutorials. I'm glad he's doing this so I can mark it off my "someday when I have time" list.

Dave's Chainmail Construction Webpage
A good collection of weave examples. (26 different weaves as of Feb. 26, 2001!) Many have "how to" sections. Nice library of weaves! Dave also makes the most amazing chainmail baskets.

M.A.I.L.
Mail Artisans International League. Dozens (hundreds?) of tutorials. Highly recommended.

Blue Buddha Boutique
A nice range of precious metals and base metals including the ever elusive saw-cut stainless steel. Rebeca has wonderfully high quality standards. I absolutely recommend her as a supplier.

The Jump Ring Lady
Mostly copper and aluminum in small quantities. I haven't personally used her rings.

ChainMaille Fashions
The source for my bronze rings and some of my stainless rings.

Rosco
Decent quality stainless rings. They sell most of their rings to fishermen. Go figure.

The Ring Lord
Zillions of metals to choose from. Many sizes. Rings by the pound.

M.A.I.L.
Mail Artisans International League. This is rapidly becoming the premier website for all things chainmail. Tutorials, articles, essays, weave libraries, links, etc...

The Ganoksin Project
Home of the Orchid mailing list. An enormous resource for jewelry information. Everything from technical essays on alloying techniques to photos of jewelry that will boggle your mind. This site is a must-visit for anyone who is serious about expanding their jewelry-making knowledge.

Turk's Head Jewelry
This isn't chainmail, but well worth visiting. Loren makes fantastic knotted wire jewelry.

The Forum
A great chainmail discussion board. Very active, with lots of friendly and helpful chainmail experts.
