Welcome to Dragonarmor Chainmaille!
A Dream of Dragonarmor
My cousin introduced my family to the art of weaving chainmaille and we loved it, we were all sitting around the table making our various projects, it was sort of like a knitting circle. After my projects were finished I wore them everywhere. One day a coworker came over to me and asked if I would be interested in making a custom order for her. It was such a great experience I thought maybe this would catch on and I could afford to make a scale maille vest for myself!. I went to craft fairs, sold in galleries and salons, and now etsy
Everything was great
My thumbs began to lock, hands swollen, wrists in agonizing pain and a mysterious lump appeared on both wrists. After blood tests, x rays, MRI s, finally I went to occupational therapy, which is what they call therapy for hands.The lump is actually a tendon that is so inflamed it feels like a bone, a reaction to all the flexor tendons inflamed on the other side.
So here I am 2 years later, still recovering, doing much better in fact, since I gave up gluten my hands are almost back to normal. I have small flare ups of inflammation if I do too much with my hands or eat any of the hi-fi foods. I will be restarting production soon! I can always customize orders but I'm not ready to start up full production at the moment.
In the meantime, I'm working my comic book, which I hope to print in time for the Massachusetts Independent Comic Expo, later this year.
I am an artist Learned animation, was drawing many cats while listening to a cat meow at me while another cat supervised. I love cats. I have been making chainmaille since 2008.
