Targaryen Chainmail Wall Hanging

Created & Donated by Katherine Bagdasian

 

TargaryenBanner_001Take what is yours with fire and blood!

Er, wait, we meant donate! For the Children! This banner of House Targaryen is made by linking together over 13,800 individual rings in the traditional European chainmail weave, using only two pairs of jewelers’ pliers. It’s made of metal, but drapes and gathers like a very heavy curtain. (The crafter is very thankful that neither fire nor blood were invoked while making this item, although it did take nearly 150 hours to create.)

Materials:
Anodized aluminum and bright aluminum rings, solid oak dowel w/ polyurethane coating. Other hardware pictured not included. Pick your own drapery brackets, hooks, or rings to match your decor.

Measurements:
Banner by itself is 19.5” wide and 35” long (50 cm wide and 89 cm long). Dowel rod measures 1” diameter and 28.5” wide (2.5 cm diameter and 72 cm wide). The whole piece weighs 4.6 lbs (2.1kg).

About the Artist:
Katherine is a lifelong crafter, dabbling in a variety of crafts and mediums (sewing, sketching, underwater basket weaving…), but chainmail and chainmail jewelry has been her primary craft-of-choice for the past 13 years. She is very happy to be contributing to the craft-along once again, and thrilled her work is a part of the big 10-year anniversary!
