I really love the bracelet! The pattern is lovely, and the jingle it makes when moved is nice and not too loud (tested during an exam at uni.) The quality is really good, too. Shipping took a while (about 8 days), but that was no surprise for an international delivery. I definitely recommend this shop and would buy here again!
From challenge to a craft
My chainmaille-ing started like a lot of things in my life do - someone said "Hey, you're crafty; I bet you can make [or do] that!"
This time it was my husband, in reference to a chainmaille bikini top we saw at the Texas Renaissance Festival.
So with a little research on the web I figured out that chainmaille-ing mostly takes time, patience, attention to detail, spatial awareness and hand strength. I soon figured out I have quite the knack for figuring out how to flip rings around to make neat patterns.
I will admit I'm still in the learning phase of the craft though, still more mimicry than I like. I want to slowly phase out the more generic patterns, though I will still offer some. I want to focus on designs and creations that I haven't seen anywhere else except in my bizarre mind.
My method is to take my supply of rings, a pattern I've found or dreamed up and sit on the couch watching netflix while trying to get as much done as I can before my cats try and crawl in my lap, or crawling in my ring box.

Additional policies and FAQs
Don't see exactly what you want? Please contact me and I would be overjoyed to collaborate with you to create your dream piece. I will work with you though a basic concept, quote you a price, create a 'prototype' piece, get your approval, and finalize the item of your dreams! A 50% minimum deposit is required for all commissions to go into the creation phase and is non-refundable (for the potentially un-recoverable materials costs), although payment in full is preferred.
I'm happy to provide free cleaning and tune up for the lifetime of your jewelry if you are not comfortable doing so. Just pay the shipping and I'll get your purchase clean and shiny, and do my best to fix any minor repairs (partially opened rings, and missing rings if I have them in stock). I will quote an optional repair cost on items outside of the guarantee period if the repair is beyond the scope of my backstock or if it will take significant time to fix.
For customer reserved listings (Non-custom orders), any stock order placed on 'reserve' for a customer will be held on reserve for a week. If payment is not rendered within that time frame the item will be released back into general inventory. Please remit payment for any reserved items within this time frame to avoid your reserved item being released for purchase by someone else.
We are also now offering gift wrapping for no additional charge. If you would like your item gift wrapped please let us know!
Q. Can I wear your jewelry in the shower?
A. I generally don't make pieces that can't be washed - but I speak from experience when I say it's a beast to get all the soap off it in the shower. Both you and the jewelry will be cleaner if you wash seperately.
Q. Can I wear my jewelry 24/7?
A. Some designs I will warn you not to wear in situations around high voltages, or where it might get caught in machinery, or something else that won't give because of risk of harm to you. Aluminum based pieces probably won't last as long if worn 24/7 (although it will not harm you to do so). I recommend stronger metals for 24/7 wear, and are happy to quote you a price for a stronger metal on any design and length that you like! Many of our stronger metals come in a variety of colors & prices.
Q. What metals do you use in your jewelry?
A. We have a wide variety of metals that we work with. Currently, the bulk of our ready to ship inventory consists of aluminum and steel items. However, we are able to offer many other metals for commissioned pieces such as the aluminum (silver and colored) and steel (galvanized, stainless, and black), as well as Copper (regular and enameled), brass, bronze, inconel, German (nickel) silver, titanium (regular and colored), niobium (regular and colored), gold filled, and silver (Argentinian and sterling). If there is a metal you would like but don't see in this list, just convo us and we will see if we can make it available to you.
Q. Do you do Wholesale?
A. Yes, we are accepting wholesale accounts. We do have a minimum order threshold. Please Convo us about Wholesaling.
Q. Why don't you refund my shipping when I return an item?
A. Shipping is not a cost of producing your lovely item. It is a charge that is paid to USPS (or any other carrier used) to get your purchase from our shop to your hands. It is not a cost we can recoup to refund to you.
