Hello,
I have been making Chainmail armour and jewelry since 1992. I have had work at local galleries and two museums in Baltimore Maryland (Walters Art Museum and the Maryland Historical Society) off and on for the last couple of years.

Most of my Titanium work is made with either butted or punched rings and a combination of the two. I make all of my punched rings at home with two 5 ton hand punches. Titanium is a very strong aerospace metal that has similar tensile strength to many varieties of steel with less than half the weight. I take great pride is making quality jewelry that will last a life time.

Thanks for Looking,
