Do you have someone who is hard to buy for?  Well, if the men in your life like chain maille, consider making them a cool tie!  Tim Shaw's tutorial shows how you can make one with the European 4-in-1 weave. Doesn't it look smart with a dark shirt!

It will not be heavy if you use aluminum rings. Avoid stainless steel unless you have strong hands! I especially like his easy method to make the tie's "knot".  He uses 18 G 1/4 inch rings.

He also has a super tutorial on the European 4-in-1 weave if you are not familiar with this.
