Maille Wire Recommendations

Hi

I'm looking to learn more about the maille making process by going back to principles and trying my hand as it were. So i;m looking for some advice on where to source some raw materials for this. Note the finished product should be strong enough to take the usual re-enactment hits :crazy:

Q1 - The first question is around the type of wire I should be using to make the rings myself - any recommendations on what type of wire to use and a good source of where to find it?

Q2 - From research, I should be using flat riveted rings, so the next question is what is the best way of either creating or buying suitable rivets?

Many Thanks
J
