This pendant is absolutely perfect. I spent hours looking for just the right one and I'm so happy I found this one. It's both sturdy and elegant, and I love the four colors, which are personally meaningful and symbolic to me. Thank you!!!

About

Sharing the love of chain maille, one colorful jump ring at a time!

Xairian Maille was born out of a desire to share chain maille, especially jewelry, with the world, as well as my quest as a stay at home mom to make a little extra money to help out with expenses (and support my hobby)!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed some form of crafting. From beading, cross stitch, sewing, and more, I have spent so much of my free time creating. I have also had a love for jewelry for as long as I can remember.

Several years ago, I found a book at the bookstore using rubber rings to make jewelry. I loved the color combinations, design ideas, and the fact that it was handmade jewelry. I decided to purchase it and give the designs a try. From there I started to do some research, and found more and more information. My love for chain maille had begun!

I loved seeing so many different color choices of jump rings and weaves. I wanted to try every weave I found, and my collection of jump rings in various colors and sizes grew and grew! I appreciated the uniqueness of the pieces, and how uncommon chain maille seemed to be. I bought more books, researched online, and gradually taught myself how to weave many styles of chain maille. Over time my abilities improved and I found great sources for my supplies.

I had finally found a craft I truly loved, and I wanted to share that love with others. I knew I couldn't be the only one who loved jewelry, but couldn't exactly afford lots of expensive pieces. I thought about making small and colorful items that would be more affordable to a larger population. I began creating several of my own designs, and thanks to the input I received from others, I realized that I might not be the only one who would enjoy wearing these pieces as much as I did. I decided to try my hand at selling.

I started with a small show, then decided to give Etsy a shot. As my confidence grew, I started listing more and more, and I signed up for larger shows. I remember thinking how great it would be to sell my crafts when I was a child, but never thought I would. But I am now the proud owner and artist of Xairian Maille!

I use high quality materials for all of my pieces, so you know you are getting the best jewelry you can. My pieces may appear to be a little more costly than others, but I take pride in the fact that I know the jump rings will have smooth closures and will be made with clean and strong materials.

My favorite thing about my shop is the name, Xairian Maille. Of course, the "maille" part comes from what I sell (chain maille). "Xairian" comes from a combination of my two children's names - Xaira and Adrian. It took quite a few months for me to come up with a name I liked, and when this popped into my head, I thought it would be perfect.

Xairian Maille continues to grow each and every day, just as the popularity of chain maille continues to rise!
