My shop has a selection of handmade jewelry, with a special collection of stainless steel anniversary pieces custom made to your size. Many of the bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings are a modern interpretation of ancient warrior chainmaille. I love the idea of women finding their inner warrior – or being given one of these pieces as acknowledgment of the strong woman she is.

I now offer custom pieces by commission! Turn your idea into jewelry art. You can email me at chainmettle|at|yahoo.com for details.

About ChainMettle

Sales 1,113
On Etsy since 2015

Chain Mettle is a blend of structure and freedom

Chain Mettle Jewelry has come out of my love of metal and shiny things. My name is Angie Osher and I am so privileged to be able to make jewelry. When you wear my jewelry I hope you to feel like you’re stepping away from the expected.
This whole thing started when I fell in love with taking medieval chainmaille armor patterns and using them to make contemporary jewelry. The structure of the chainmaille weaves somehow frees me to create pieces that veer off of traditional into something a little sideways. In a way that mirrors my life, which I thought would take the same direction as everyone else's...a fairly straight line with checkpoints along the way. But my life changed its direction and I veered off of the standard path. It took me a while but I realized it was ok - and even pretty awesome - to pick a new destination, turn away from the predictable, and be creative and unusual.

Learning is one of the wonderful gifts of life and you're never too old, right? I've been studying silversmithing and you may notice some new styles in the shop. Keep an eye out as I grow in this area and find my "voice" in this new-to-me medium.

Thank you for letting me share my story and for checking out my shop. -Angie

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

**I will add or subtract length to your bracelets for free at any time.**

Bracelets wrap around your wrist differently depending on the thickness of the chainmaille "weave" I used. Please make sure to read the listing regarding recommended length to add for that individual piece.

Often with my bracelets, 1/2" is the appropriate amount to add the size of your wrist. This is especially true with the Byzantine pieces. In other words, if your wrist measures 6.75 inches (average) around, order a bracelet that is 7.25 inches. (To measure your wrist size, you can use a string and wrap it around your wrist, then measure the length of that string using a ruler.)

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions!

Jewelry Care

Stainless steel pieces come with steel clasps and the entire piece can be cleaned using gentle dish soap. The main thing to avoid when wearing steel is salt water.

My copper jewelry is always made using pure, uncoated copper to allow the copper to have direct contact with your skin for potential health benefits. Copper is a softer metal so you won't want to let it bang into things. You can brighten up your piece by soaking it in pure, warm lemon or lime juice with a pinch of salt dissolved in it. Rinse it in warm water and towel dry. Let it air dry for a few hours so that all the moisture is evaporated from the crevices (or blow dry on low heat). Store the piece in the ziploc bag it arrives in, with the included "anti-tarnish" strip.

Custom and personalized orders

Often I can change the color of a piece without any extra expense to you... just send me a message with your request and I will let you know right away.
