About

Bring chainmaille back!

Did you know. There were two possible methods of producing the rings for the mail. Closed rings were made by punching them from a sheet of metal with a double punch, or by simply punching a hole in a piece of metal and trimming the outside edge. Open rings were usually made from iron wire. There has been (and still is) much controversy as to whether or not the ancient armourer knew the art of wire-drawing.

Here at Captive Link we use mainly anodized aluminum rings. They are lightweight, comfortable and come in awesome colors! Each link is hand closed and each scale is positioned one at a time by hand marking every piece a work of love.

    As a new transplant to North Carolina I feel like the change of scenery has really sparked my creativity. I believe that the colors found near my new home, from the orange color of the clay to the cool colors of the forest are reflected in my jewelry
