Watch Game of Thrones or Vikings and you will likely see chain mail, or I prefer the French Chainmaille, meaning "mesh of a net." Within the last several centuries, talented artisans have adapted this ancient art to making exquisite pieces of jewelry. I handcraft my chainmaille jewelry in the same manner as armor was made more than 2,500 years ago – one ring at a time, woven into intricate and beautiful patterns, called “weaves.”
The materials I use may be rare niobium, titanium, stainless steel, brass, bronze, raw or torch fired copper, polished “bright” silvery, or colorful anodized aluminum, sterling silver, gold, and silver fill. Other elements may be added such as crystals, fresh water pearls, chainmaille “scales,” or natural stones. All materials are responsibly sourced from either U.S. or Canadian-based suppliers to provide you the best possible quality.
I am honored to be one of those who are working to keep this beautiful art form alive, and I hope you enjoy shopping for these one-of-a-kind treasures as much as I love making them for you.
