At risk of begging, please donate if you can! I've already posted a link to some of my work; I want to be able to do it for a living, not just a hobby.

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

TFW when some guy's court costs are making more money than your legitimate artwork.

As much work as it takes to make even a small bit of chainmail, you already demonstrate that you have the drive and enthusiasm to do well. One suggestion for a quick bit of extra income from this: small 4 to 6 inch squares of stainless steel chainmail sell for 25 and up on Amazon and eBay. They are marketed for safely scouring seasoned cast iron cook ware, which has gotten a big resurgence in popularity amongst the "prepper" community, campers and hikers, and general green-conscious people who are discontinuing use of household cleaning chemicals and soaps. You'll find examples of pan scrubbers all over....all from the same one or two chainmail makers. The chain scrubbers sell quite well.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

^ That's a good idea, Mellen.   

Sirius, your decorative/wearable mail items are great, but there are others you can hook in as well.  The practical spin of Mellen's idea is a great way to appeal to the people who wouldn't really be into chain mail in a decorative form.   
Some folks are a big fan of form and function in one.

Alas that's all the help I can give.  As much as I would like to donate to help you, I've not got much wiggle room when it comes to expenses.  My extra cash so far has been going into funding for emergency vet visits for my catkids.
