4 in 1 English chainmaille belt

as a belt
Long ago when I was in high school I made a chainmaille skirt (from when I use to go to Ren-Fairs a lot) I have no idea where it is now.  Over the last eight days I have been visiting with relatives and one of them had some links...
they bought years and years ago from "the ring lord".
bits and pieces 
2 inches wide by 46 inches longdetailrings open close and project in constructionclosed linksstartbeginning with flashSo I thought it would be fun to make something again.   I decided I would make my brother-in-law a belt since it was his supplies after all.  In the photo I am wearing it as I needed a mannequin to show how it looks as a belt and to see if it would fit through belt loops.  I felt weird asking him to be my mannequin so this is me not him.  He still needs to put on the final details as it still needs a buckle and if he wants to he can add tiny rings to the edge for added strength not that, that is actually need since this is made out of stainless steel.  You can see in these photos the tools I used to make this is  pliers  (takes two pliers with out teeth) which I used to open and close links and of course the links them selves.  You can also see the pieces I made that are the 4 links in 1 to make the base of the maille.  More photos of when I was making this here if you want to see more that is.
