~ Hello and Thank You for Your Interest! ~

Heartfelt Creations is a husband and wife team. Wendy and Fred live in London, Ontario Canada. Wendy got started making jewelry in 2007 at My Sister's Place, a women's centre in London, doing beaded work. She started her own jewelry business, Heartfelt Creations, in 2010. The word "heartfelt" in their name refers to the love she has for her work, and also the love one can share in giving some of her creations as a gift. Her husband joined the team with enthusiasm, and they both began learning chainmail artisanry, which has been an ever evolving process. They sell at various art shows and festivals in southwestern Ontario through the months of June to December.

Chainmail involves using pliers to open, weave and close one tiny jump ring at a time in various complex weaves. One of their bracelets can take any where from an hour to 10 hours to make, depending on the weave's complexity and how tiny the rings are. Wendy and Fred take extra care to make sure their ring closures are perfect so that their jewelry is smooth to the touch. Many of their creations (depending upon the raw material) are run through a tumbler multiple times to ensure smoothness and shine. Heartfelt Creations high quality saw cut rings are sourced from Canada and the USA.

Wendy and Fred pride themselves in top notch customer service. If there's a special custom order you'd like to discuss, they will work with you to create the design you really yearn for.

Wendy and Fred love the relaxing meditative process of creating chainmail jewelry. They enjoy the act of creating and the challenge of learning new chainmail weaves. Both of them find their creative endeavour helps their mental health, which is daily personal challenge each of them lives with. Another fun aspect for them is interacting with so many friendly and interesting people at events they show at. And on a philosophical note, Wendy and Fred find it's a great feeling to be creating their own destiny.
