Please see my other store for the rings and other supplies I use in my jewelry, many which I make myself!

I am a college student living away from home and studying mechanical engineering and Japanese. I love making things and sell here on etsy to fund my own projects (rings aren't free!). I have over 7 years experience with chain maille and lapidary, so feel to ask questions! I also love art and graphic design and have taken all of the photos of my items and made all of the digital art myself. I've been called a perfectionist and I hope if that is true that it reflects well in the items I sell.

I first got into maille when I decided that I would be King Arthur for Halloween. I abandoned the project when I found that it required something patience a few months later and have been hooked since. As for…

I first got into maille when I decided that I would be King Arthur for Halloween. I abandoned the project when I found that it required something patience a few months later and have been hooked since. As for lapidary, I joined a gem and mineral club in Anaheim when I was young, and learned there. The college life of today, though, requires less lapidary and more chain maille. Regardless, "Mineral" remains in the title of this store and is hinted at in my other store (MMSupplies).

Many high quality instructions on making chain maille can be found these days, but how I learned, which was and is still free, was at www.mailleartisans.org. The community can be great and tons of instructions can be found, often several for each of the many common weaves. For those of you that have read this far into my profile, I highly recommend you give the site a look if you're looking for a place to start. I still visit often.

If you're looking for something different, at a more ambitious point when I was teaching classes I created a blog which has instructions on making chain maille.
