Idle hands are the Devil's Workshop

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 2018 is to expand scalemaille items, and making more apparel. My husband is always designing new and more appealing displays for our Art show events. We've recently purchased a house and plan to showcase our work during Quarterly Open House 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.

    Wife & Artist, Owner, Marketer

    A Self Taught Chainmaille Artist, I made piece work for an Armorist, a lengthy persuit. I soon learned an arsenal of weaves indicitive of jewelry and wearable art, and the rest is history. I'm very passionate about chainmaille and love to teach.

    Husband & Display Maker, Owner, Shipper

    Mike is the genius behind the displays we take to shows. From refinishing mannequins to building displays & backdrops. He lugs in the displays and inventory and drives the "get-away" car. He's my back up salesperson & promotes online. Expert shipper.

  • Marley

    Marley is our Staffordshire Pit bull terrier. From ordering supplies, to design and shipping; nothing gets past him.

  • Delilah

    Assistant

    Delilah was given a make over by Mike. Once "flesh" colored plaster, she is now very fashionable. Delilah models all apparel and neckwear. We're currently looking for her Samson.
