Chainmail armor made from beer can tabs — you know, the pull-tabs, ring pulls and/or stay-on-tabs which open beverages in aluminium cans.
It looks as though you will still need some aluminum chain mail rings to do this. However, here’s more information on a slightly different method of making chainmail using “shiny yarn, a crochet hook and pull-tabs from beer cans.”
Authentic chainmail patterns are available here.
So go ahead; get to drinking, dumpster-diving and saving those pull-tabs so you can make the suits of armor you need for your amore.
