Ancient Techniques - Contemporary Design

I started making jewellery in 2011, experimenting with a range of techniques I found appealing, but once I discovered chain mail, I quickly became addicted and dedicated myself to learning how to craft a wide range of weaves well enough to be proud to offer, and was also thrilled to be able to turn some of my designs into tutorials for several issues of Digital Beading magazine.

I love finding new ways to use old weaves, and different materials to incorporate into my pieces. My primary goal is to produce quality items at an affordable price, in an eclectic range of tastes and styles.

I like to work with most materials, though stainless steel is a preferred medium, with niobium and sterling silver also favourites. I use a mix of saw cut rings sourced here in Australia, as well as some imported machine cut rings. Wherever possible, I use nickel-free metals. I also test each and every piece to ensure the closures on the rings are smooth and won't cause any issues such as catching on clothing or scratching skin.

All of my pieces are packaged in a black satin or velvet gift bag, which is customised with a logo tag, making it presentable as a gift as soon as it arrives.

Thank you for visiting my store and taking the time to read about it!

Welcome to Maille Addiction, home to an exclusive line of handmade chain mail jewellery and accessories. Each chain mail piece in my store is indivudually handcrafted by me, link by link. I try to cater to a variety of tastes & budgets, and love working with metals of all kinds, but stainless steel is a definite preference, and I'm inspired by a fairly eclectic range of styles. I hope you find something you love!

Australian purchases ship at no additional cost. Some international shipping prices quoted are for standard air mail via Australia Post - this service is traceable but does not include online tracking. I am happy to ship via a trackable service upon request (additional costs may apply). At my discretion, some packages may be upgraded to registered shipping (at no additional cost to the buyer).

Please note that customs duties and import charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost and may be payable before delivery of your order. These charges are levied by local customs offices and are the buyer's responsibility. I advise checking with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to making a purchase.

Shipping time within Australia is typically 2-5 business days to major cities, and up to 15 business days to remote areas.

International shipping times can vary between 1-6 weeks, with an average of 3 weeks - please allow at least 4 weeks.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am very happy to accept custom orders for chain mail work (not including clothing or scale armour), and can work with a wide variety of materials, weaves and specifications. Wherever possible, I prefer to complete custom pieces and give give customers the opportunity to view, approve, make changes or decline the work, with some exceptions, including bulk orders, personalised items and pieces requiring precious metal, in which case a deposit or payment in advance may be requested.

Please note that for environmental reasons, I do not include printed invoices with orders unless requested, or required by the destination country's customs office.
Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as requesting notification that an item is in stock
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

•Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
•Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
•Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

•Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
•Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
•Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
•Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
