About

Idle hands are the Devil's Playground

Armored Hearts doesn't have a brick and mortar. It isn't even a 'shop'. Armored Hearts is one woman and her generous, hard-working husband.

Learning to make Chainmaille Armor was more social than to make a buck. Friends in Kansas did it. I wanted to hang out with my friends. After a few years, on and off, it got old. Same shiny rings, same squares and seams into shirts (hauberks) month after month. Years later, I found some suppliers that sold colored rings and my brain EXPLODED. I quickly taught myself jewelry friendly weaves of chainmaille and went almost insane cramming 'just one more weave' into my arsenal of knowledge.

I'm a driven artist that strives to create something new every day.
Simple, everyday visions inspire me to challenge my artistic endeavors.

As a child, I was taught knitting, crocheting and crossstitching. All of these I work into my work at some point. Knitting Scalemaille fingerless gloves and scale bags, crocheting pop tab purses... I am getting older so the crossstitch hasn't been first on my
for a while.

My husband has been wood working for almost 25 years. He has a great eye for getting the right shapes and structure for unique, hand made displays. He's the brain that takes my creative picture and makes it come to life.

Our plan for 2016 is to expand scalemaille items, and making more apparel. My husband is always designing new and more appealing displays for our Art show events.
This is a labor of love and passion for me. My friends and family & all my customers support my efforts with encouragement, suggestions and purchases & I thank each and every one of them. Past, present and future.

Thank you.
