I met a man today that told me that when he was 16 he made an entire tunic and coif out of chainmaile using old wire coat hangers that a nearby business just threw away. One of his teacher's taught him to make chainmaile during detention. Another teacher invited him to show his wares in an art show featuring art made from discarded materials. He did and someone bought his tunic and coif for $750. Impressive.
