Idle Hands are the Devil's Playthings...
Every little girl has wanted to be a Princess at some time or other... I always wanted to be the Knight in Shining Armour!
I have always loved the costuming from the Medieval era. The talent and the craftsmanship was amazing.
I had a friend that was making chainmaile and started to apprentice under his guidance very shortly after I met him. I used my new hobby to quit smoking - it kept my hands busy!
I learned to make my own rings out of a roll of wire and a mandrel - in the traditional manner. Each ring is hand cut and closed with pliers.
Some ten plus years later, my friends and family are thrilled to be my "beta testers" and loyal fans of my work. I found that a lot of people that I knew had a nickle allergy. I did my research and discovered Stainless Steel, Titanium and Niobium. I specialize in making beautiful pieces for people that have metal allergies.
I love to collaborate and make someone's imagined piece a reality.
I love to help out with fundraising projects and can often be convinced to donate a piece to a silent auction for a local charitable cause.

I have been dabbling in Chainmaile for over 10 years now. I orginally started to quit smoking - to keep my hands busy. I apprenticed under Battlewear and still seek him out for mentoring once in a while!
