The Chain Mail Guy

Top shop for gifts in Canada.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Hi I'm Jerry Penner, The Chain Mail Guy. I've been making wire and metal art for over 20 years. Articles created by the Chain Mail Guy are of the highest quality. I make my own rings because I can't find anyone who can provide me with a consistent high-quality ring that won't scratch, pinch, or pull hair. My rings are cut so well you won't feel a burr around the face of any ring, nor will you see light through the join.

My garden art is made from rescued material. Instead of sending scrap metal to a metal dealer who sends it to a mill who melts it and forms it into new raw material to be made into new things, why not short-circuit the process and make new things out of old things? Let's recycle more efficiently.

If you don't see what you're looking for, describe it and I'll offer suggestions and quote price and delivery for you. If you can dream it in cloth, I can knit it in chain.

PLEASE NOTE: If you see images in my Etsy shop that look very much like images on Amazon or Alibaba, be aware those vendors are using my images without my consent and are in violation of copyright law. BUYER BEWARE! Other sites using my images are misrepresenting the quality of what they sell. With sellers who violate image copyright, you DO NOT get what you pay for.

Authentic Armour - Cool Club Clothing - Gorgeous Jewelry.

Way back in 1996 I was out of a job, out of money, and looking for something to do when I happened across a re-run of "Mad Max - Beyond Thunderdome" on TV. I saw Tina Turner's dress as Aunty Entity in that movie and said to myself, 'Hey! I can do that!'. So I went to the basement, turned some wire into rings, threw them on the floor and stared at them until the pattern popped out.

When I started showing my wares people asked me where I got my rings from. When they found out I made them they wanted to buy the rings for making their own projects. Now I offer other knitters some of the best rings on the Internet so they can focus on creating cool stuff instead of making rings.

Chain mail is not as lucrative or profitable as you might think. I took my artistry into a different direction making items out of recycled or thrift store finds. I like taking two or more items that were never meant to go together and making them into something new. There's no telling what might come out the other end of the process.

I promised myself I'd quit when it wasn't fun anymore. I'm still here!
