This bracelet shipped and arrived quickly. Exactly as expected...scratch that...better then expected! Sizing was perfect. The nature of chainmail makes it move and flex making it feel soft despite being made of steel. Super comfortable. Very pleased. Would definitely recommend!

Welcome! We are Wendy Shillingford and Fred Whitehead, from Chatham, Ontario Canada. You are about to be tempted by our handmade Chainmail Jewelry. Each jewelry item is patiently created by weaving one link at a time.

Chainmail is created by opening a link with two pliers, weaving and connecting with another link, and then closing the link. We are a husband and wife team who linked together in 2010, and we love our jobs here in our home studio. We open, weave, and close links made from a variety of metals hundreds of times every day!

Our chainmail jewelry is crafted with daily wear in mind. We know you will love your purchase and wear it more than any other jewelry in your collection. With a variety of designs in a variety of metals and colours, you will find a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one!

We know you want excellent service and we always deliver. We look forward to exceeding your expectations. We welcome custom designs as well.

Questions about any of the work you see here? Contact me (Wendy) with an Etsy Conversation, or call or text (519) 697-6903, and I’ll get back to you within one day during normal business hours.

Enjoy browsing our shop!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me by sending me an Etsy conversation, or calling me at (519) 697-6903, and I will work with you to design that special piece you have in mind!

Sizing details

For bracelet ordering, please measure carefully. Using a piece of string or ribbon, wrap around your wrist, being sure to measure over the bony protrusion on your wrist. Then allow a little extra to allow for a slight drape in the bracelet. Measure the string. Refer to the item description to see if you need to add anything to that measurement to accomodate the width of the chain you are ordering.
Choose your necklace length for that perfect custom fit! To measure your neck, wrap a piece of string around your neck and let it drape to your desired length, then measure the string
If you need an item resized, once you ship the item back to me, we resize it at no charge, then will bill you for shipping the item back to you.
