About

♥ ME ♥

My medium is chainmaille and wire jewelry with a contemporary alternative flavor. I've always loved the strength, delicacy, and shininess of metal. A lifelong artsy type and fashionista, I learned my first chainmaille weave in 2006 and instantly fell in love. Since then I've taught myself more weaves than I can count.

And yes, Viva really IS my name (partially!).

♥ THE SHOP ♥

I love custom orders! See something you like but want a different pattern, length, width, color, or type of metal? I am more than happy to create or adjust a piece to your liking. Available metals include stainless steel, sterling silver, copper, bronze, niobium, or gold-fill.

Please do look…

Please do look through my 'sold' items as well - I can usually recreate pieces if there's something you like.

Yes! Gift orders are no problem. My orders are always attractively and carefully packaged. There is no receipt or price tag, and I am happy to include a gift message for you. If you'd like to give a gift certificate, let me know & we can work something out!
