How to make a chain mail

I bought 1.2mm thick galvanized wire, several hundred meters in lenght and rolled it on a bar. Then I cut rings with wire scissors and sewed them with pliers. Sewing of rings lasted for about 200 hours. Of course I had help and my friend Gregor Perko who sewed two thirds of the chain mail. He is now professional chain mail sewer and has complited several of them.
