About

Avante Jewelry Ltd.

As the owner of Avante Jewelry Ltd., I (Mark S.) have been handcrafting chainmaille jewelry for over five years. We are a husband and wife team and my wife, Vickie, assists me. Vickie has her own style of handcrafted beaded jewelry using a variety of materials.

About Chainmaille ~ Handcrafted by Mark

Chainmaille jewelry is based on the medieval concept of chainmaille armor which was made by linking rings together to produce a heavy, flexible protective wear worn by Knights and Soldiers. Many different patterns were designed in various regions of the world over a period of hundreds of years. Celtic, European 4 in 1 and Japanese 2 in 12 are just a few. The flexibility and ability to allow air to circulate through it gave chainmaille armor advantages over solid metal formed armor. Today chainmaille is making a comeback as artisans around the world are using old patterns and creating new designs for use as adornment ~ jewelry.

I weave chainmaille from “jump rings” that I make in my shop. A spool of sterling silver plated or gold plated copper wire is wound around a mandrel (steel rod) with a specific diameter, to form a tight coil. Next, the coil is clamped into a jig to hold it where I use a saw to cut through one side of the length of the coil. This cuts the coil into many “jump rings”, each having a cut in it, used for opening the ring and weaving it into the chainmaille. Jump rings are made in various wire gauges and diameters, based upon the requirements of the chainmaille weave.
