Announcement   Welcome to Torusphere Amplexusmaille!

Torus= Ring (shiny metallic rings)
Sphere= Ball (ball bearings and glass orbs)
Amplexus= amphibian mating embrace (I have a huge love for frogs)
Maille= chainmaille

Torusphere Amplexusmaille= spheres and other found objects embraced in shiny, metallic rings to create unique, modern chainmaille designs .

Pleased to meet you! My name is Jean. I'm an Illustrator and Graphic Designer with an obsession for tori, spheres, complex interwoven geometric patterns and shapes, colors, jewelry design, (and frogs). These obsessions converge to become stunning wearable art. They're a unique, modern take on the ancient art of chainmaille. Jewelry pieces are created in rings of stainless steel, niobium, copper, brass, and rubber. They often capture pen nibs, colored glass and semi-precious stone spheres and cabochons, ball bearings, nails, keys, and more.
This jewelry is tactile, slinky, luxurious, and imaginative. Each piece is painstakingly hand woven by me. This jewelry is expressive, timeless, durable, and collectible. Indulge yourself today! Custom pieces are available upon request.
