Refunds and Exchanges
I guarantee that the rings on your chainmaille will stay closed and tight with normal wear. If they open, I will repair the item at no cost. If the item shows signs of abuse and/or alteration, I reserve the right to charge a fee. I will notify you of the fee before I proceed with the repair.

If an item requires three or more repairs within a 1 year period, there is a problem and will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

I do not warranty the color on anodized materials.

Rubber rings have a five year warranty against breakage (void if they show signs of being sliced or cut). After five years, I will replace them for a nominal fee.

I will resize items made from standard materials once within 90 days of purchase for no charge. After 90 days, I will provide an estimate, which will depend on materials and time needed. For items made of premium materials (Fine Silver/Gold/Glo-in-the-Dark), there may be a charge even within 90 days. I will notify you of the fees before proceeding.

If an item needs repairing or resizing, please contact me before returning it. I will reply confirming the address to send it to, and let you know if there will be a charge. You are responsible for shipping costs of sending it to me. I will pay the cost to return it to you when the work is complete.
Additional policies and FAQs
Everything I sell is handcrafted. The metal starts as wire, which is coiled and cut into rings. I don’t do the coiling myself, preferring to buy my rings pre-made.

Currently, I work mainly with anodized aluminum scales and rings, stainless steel rings, and EPDM rubber rings. I am able to get finer materials as well. If you have a custom order, feel free to contact me!

Anodized Aluminum
Available in: Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Green, Turquoise, Blue, Dark Purple, Violet, Black, and Bronze.
The lightweight benefits of bright aluminum, but more colorful! Aluminum rings are soaked in acid while an electrical current is run through them to open up the pores, allowing dye to soak in and create extremely bright and vivid colors. Note: not all colors are available for all items. The coating is fairly hard but can be scratched. Clean with mild dish soap (blue Dawn recommended) and warm water.

Stainless Steel
Steel is by far the most common metal used to make chainmaille. It comes in many forms, including mild, galvanized, and stainless. I mainly work with stainless steel. Stainless steel has a deep, medium to dark grey color. It can be used for jewelry, although you don’t see it as often as sterling or gold. It weighs a bit less, is quite strong, far less expensive, and does not tarnish or oxidize, although it will rust under some extreme conditions. Even surgical grade stainless steel sometimes contains nickel, so it may cause problems for people with nickel allergies. It is also harder to work with than some other metals, so the cost can be a little higher. Clean with mild dish soap (blue Dawn recommended) and warm water.

Comes in various sizes and colors and allows for some pieces to be made seamlessly, without a clasp. Lightweight, so when combined with aluminum or titanium makes great costume pieces and club wear. Since the rings are solid, they are almost always used in combination with metal rings. I use EPDM rubber o-rings. They have excellent resistance to water, steam, alcohol, ozone, and sunlight. Avoid petroleum oils, gasoline, and similar items. They handle temperature ranges from –67° to 302°F. Clean with mild dish soap (blue Dawn recommended) and warm water.
