Medieval accessories for a Modern World - chainmaille pieces that are rooted in tradition but with a modern twist, using colored rings and other interesting materials.

My shop will primarily feature chainmaille jewelry and accessories, but I'll also include other jewelry I make from time to time.

I'm completely self taught and constantly working at improving my craft. Since seeing (and buying) pieces at the Renaissance Festival inspired me to pick up the pliers, I've wanted to keep a nod to traditional weaves and styles but update them for our times. I try to do this by adding color, interesting accents and modern materials to my pieces.

I started my shop while living in Syracuse, NY (aka the "Salt City"), but have since hopped over to Chittenango NY, aka the birthplace of the Wizard Of Oz author L.Frank Baum.

All jewelry is handmade by me. Each piece is made with pride and care is taken to guarantee that your purchase will be of top quality.

The silver colored metal I use is an alloy know to maillers as Bright Aluminum - This alloy is shinier and stronger than regular aluminum, and it will not tarnish.

Your purchase will arrive to you carefully packaged in either a drawstring jewelry bag or a hand-made re-usable origami box. (I make those too). Copper jewelry comes with a small baggie and anti tarnish tab to help you keep it shiny.
