I first stumbled upon Ralph Helmrich's wonderful chain mail pictorials or picture tutorials on Flickr - my favorites are shown and linked below. The trail then led me to his Etsy supply store called Unkamen Supplies as well as his family's finished chain mail jewelry one called Unkamen Gifts.

He has come a long way since making that first chain mail necklace for Karen some years ago. Today he sells precision cut rings and other supplies. He's not kidding either as you can see from the tutorial pictures.
