ChainmailleByBim's Shop Announcement

Welcome! My name is Bim Ditson and I have been making and selling my Chainmaille jewelry for fifteen years

I'm here to answer any questions you might have.

I started making Chainmaille at age nine. I started selling my work before I turned ten and have since been growing my talents along with my business. Now I'm proud to fully support myself by creating my handmade jewelry and accessories.

I came up with the name Bim for myself when I was learning how to talk--as a diaper-clad redheaded, toy roller-skate wearing, three year old. I had a knack for bashing on pots and pans each morning. And each morning, after sufficiently awakening my parents, a hearty Lego session with any one of my three older siblings in the Eugene Oregon rain would round out a good afternoon. Next might be some drawing in the craft room I so loved before refusing to wash up for dinner. Yep, I'd say a self-given name that was likely, subconsciously borrowed from a Dr. Seuss book, fits me just perfect.

I sell my jewelry at the Portland Saturday Market, The Oregon Country Fair, here on Etsy, and at several boutiques across the West Coast. I've worked on projects from the Twilight movies and for musical pop stars, to Chainmaille seat covers for motorcycles and everything in between. If it can be done with Chainmaille, I'm pretty sure that I can make it.

I'm always up to a challenge and I love innovating in my field so if you have a special idea or project let me know!
