Crescent Maillechainmaille for change, one ring at a timeweaving since 2007˙˙˙˙˙°.º.°.º.°˙˙˙˙˙From the moment I picked up two pairs of pliers and started crafting my first bracelet I was immediately hooked.In chainmaille, small metal rings called “jump rings” are woven together, one by one. A ring is opened with pliers, worked into its proper place, and then closed. The final result is a chain or mesh in a weave that may be very simple or quite complex. Chainmaille is simultaneously intricate and delicate, yet strong and substantial. As a jewelry-making technique, chainmaille has seemingly endless possibilities. When crafted to perfection, a chainmaille bracelet is an amazing thing, mesmerizing as it bends and moves and molds itself to your wrist: it almost feels alive. Chainmaille is a passion and a joy. Creating jewelry in traditional & new weaves and using these weaves as a starting point for my own designs, I strive to make jewelry that is as much a pleasure to wear as it is to behold. Starting in 2016, 10% of all sales will be loaned through Kiva.org. Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Kiva facilitates lending to those individuals in vulnerable or impoverished areas of the world who would otherwise be unable to secure the funding needed to pursue their dreams—whether as artisans or entrepreneurs, mothers, or even as students—to earn money to support their families, further their trades, make improvements to their homes, and send their children to school. I lend exclusively to women, and through my various shops on Etsy have, to date, made over 290 loans totaling $7,500. You can view my loans here: http://www.kiva.org/lender/cMaille
