Here are two micro maille pieces I made years ago.  Both are 24g (0.02" wire) and 1/16" ID rings.  The ring is sterling silver and the tetrahedron is anodized titanium.  The little tetrahedron fits on an a poker chip and can hold a couple pounds before sagging...

I like to blacksmith, and my wife likes to knit -- we're what you call a "steel wool couple". That gave me the idea for knitting maille on circular needles:

(Just a bit of fun with garage door spring and copper wire left over from an electrical project.)

I know this is pretty old post, but here is an example of mail I have made.  It's made from 16 gauge wire, punched with a modified nail set, and riveted with triangle rivets made from the same wire.  The links are a bit big with an OD of around 12mm, kind of outside of the historical norm.  To set the rivets I used an old pair of clinchers that was made by Steve of Forth Castle when he was still making them.

I would still like to get the process better and more historical at some point. :)
