cMaille's Shop Announcement

25 January 2016: Crescent Maille is open again. Chainmaille for change, one ring at a time: All sales support Kiva.org - Bracelets, pendants, necklaces & sculpture - the Crescent Collection: Sterling Silver - the Firefly Collection: Bronze - the Ensō Collection: Niobium.

• Most recent Kiva loan: https://www.kiva.org/lend/1017459
$25 to Isabela (of Grupo Las Inalcanzables) in Guatemala, a 29-year-old single mother of two, to buy yarn & thread for weaving traditional clothing that she sells to support herself and her children.

Starting 2016, 10% of all sales will be loaned through Kiva.org, micro-financing female artisans & entrepreneurs around the world—women who would otherwise be unable to secure the funds to achieve their goals and provide for themselves and their families.

Lately I've been doing a lot of work in bronze. Bronze is a beautiful alternative to other "base" metals/alloys such as copper, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel, and is more affordable than precious metals such as sterling silver. Shiny with a rosy golden glow, over time bronze will develop the highly-coveted patina of antique sculpture—but you can also easily clean your bronze jewelry to restore its deep warm shine.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
Currently I ship only within the United States due to the wide range of customs restrictions and the postage costs involved. Some countries prohibit the import of jewelry unless it is "costume jewelry" (i.e., no precious metals). If you are outside of the United States and are interested in making a purchase, please contact me. If I am able to accommodate you, I certainly will.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
