I love the scalemaille work that you do and I love the different colors and themes that tie along with each one, this one seems to have the most impact and i can understand why because of the colors. I also think the craftmanship is quite expert since i havent seen anything like this and the uniqueness is what makes me even want to purchase a set, also that its not so heavy and it fits with your body (people read that part...its truth) Overall i find this a huge sucess and i just think its absolutely wonderful and im glad people are seeing how fantastic your work actually is.
What do you think?

I hope you get rich and famous because I enjoyed your gallery and think you'd have a phenomenal scheme to work with on a set of these

Where on earth do you get the scales and stuff? Or do you make them?
NikidaEve Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
I rose through a fabricator that sells in bulk. If I had the tools or the time to make these I'd so try, but alas I order these. I make most of my links for chainmail though
