After visiting a renaissance festival a while ago, I became interested in Chainmaille. Initially, I just started making patterns and designs I found online but after some time I wanted a way to show off my hobby. I had already been making jewelry for my girlfriend and her pieces began to gain attention from our friends and coworkers. Because of this I decided that others might also be interested in my pieces and found that I could continue my craft by focusing on this aspect.
Currently, I work with a few different materials. Stainless steel because it does not tarnish, is incredibly strong and keeps it shine; anodized and bright aluminum for adding color into my work and also for a nice light weight feel; EPDM rubber, in other words latex free rubber, to allow for some pieces to not need a clasp and a completely different look…
