Rapid shipping, great seller, very willing to work with me to make sure I got exactly the right internal AND external dimensions on my jump rings. Recommended!
I have been making chainmail in one form or another since 1995. I began with an interest in armor that eventually branched out into any form of woven chain I could absorb. I have made LARP armor, stage armor, in addition to the jewelry I focus on now. Every single ring is coiled and cut by me, and woven by me at my home studio in Athens, GA.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I am always happy to design and produce custom work to your specifications. Just hit the 'contact' button up top and let me know what you are looking for, and we can work it out together!
Most of my bracelets are displayed in the 7"-7½" range of size, and necklaces / pendant chains are standard sized at 18". However, I will custom size anything I make to fit your needs. Just leave me a note when you check out and I'll follow up with you if I have any questions.
Copper: The enameled copper that I work with is very tarnish resistant. Anything short of a very aggressive abrasive is unlikely to damage the surface.
Silver and Gold: Real silver and gold tarnish over time - even Argentium, despite what you may have heard. I work with traditional Sterling Silver, which can be cleaned with a silver dip cleaner that can be purchased at any retail location that sells jewelry. The same applies to 14kt, 18kt, and gold fill wire - I recommend a gold dip cleaner. For mixed metals, use a generic jewelry cleaner or the aforementioned silver dip cleaner. All of the stones I work with are safe in a dip cleaner, unless specifically mentioned otherwise in the item description.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Bracelets and necklaces are generally packaged in a traditional 8" x 2" x 1" kraft box, pendants and earrings are packaged in my own custom 2" x 2" printed boxes. If you have a special request, just contact me and I'll accommodate you if I can!
I am happy to offer wholesale pricing for retail sellers, just contact me and we can discuss details.
I take great pride in my work, and I hope that my customers enjoy it as well. If you ever damage or break a piece that I have made, contact me and I will repair it for you, all I ask is that you ship it to me or meet me at one of my frequent shows.
