We spent 4 months making this.. one.. scale.. at a time.
It was going to be a vest for a big Steampunk event we do in March every year but we got word that our show was canceled.
After so many months of us working on it, we can't figure out what to do with it. We don't have room at our normal booth for such a big showpiece item and I am loathe to think of it just sitting curled up in a canvas bag around the house.
So here it is: A sheet of scale maille. It is made out of solid stainless steel scales and it weighs in around 18 pounds. We used split rings to connect the scales so it has incredible flex and movement to it. THIS IS BATTLE-READY ARMOR. We have stabbed and slashed it dozens of times and as long as you avoid those upward thrusts, it can take quite a mean hit without so much as scuffing!
This sheet measures approximately 16 inches by 32 inches.
1) You can finish the vest. You would only have to make the top front and back pieces. You could even make them out of leather if you wanted it to be more comfortable.
2) Cut it down into sections to weave it into other pieces you're working on
3) Countless people have told us they would love to frame it on their wall. It is incredibly attractive to look at and touch. Just get some sturdy picture hangers!
4) Simply use it as a table-runner or shawl as-is. I have already edged it so the scales on the sides don't flip out anymore.
Comes with a lifetime guarantee against abuse or defects - no questions asked!
Stainless steel and titanium are hypoallergenic.
They will never rust, tarnish or leave black on your skin.
Wear your Steampunk Garage jewelry in the shower, the pool, or even in saltwater.
You never have to take it off if you don't want to; it will look new forever!
We tumble all our rings for 10-12 hours before working with them to remove burrs, oil, and give them a great shine!
