Crafting and creativity linking us together.

Druid Chains is more than just an online boutique filled with exquisite earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and accessories. It’s the realization of a lifelong passion to connect with others through crafting and creativity. Within this shop, you’ll find a selection of premium chainmaille and scalemaille jewelry because each piece is designed with the understanding that we are all connected through invisible links. When I create a piece of jewelry in my home studio, I am helping you find the perfect gift, treating you to something special for yourself just because, and encouraging smiles.

My name is Katie, and I’ve been designing jewelry for over twenty years. With a strong base of jewelry design in my undergraduate, I’m currently completing my New York Institute of Art and Design Degree. I’ve always found inspiration in nature and this company originally began as SeaJewels Designs with a focus on natural colors, designs, and motifs. I have since transitioned into a chainmaille focus but you’ll still see quite a lot of Mother Nature’s influence in my designs. In fact, you can still enjoy, and purchase, my original gemstone designs locally in downtown North East, Maryland and in Chesapeake Bay Yoga & Wellness. However, if you are here, you are likely shopping for a shining, special something that combines links with luxury. Ideal for cosplay and fairs, this jewelry is also a delightful addition to your daily wardrobe for a pop of the unexpected. With product lines focusing on Celtic heritage, meditation pieces, and more contemporary interpretations of superheroes, wizards, and wonders you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your personality.

No matter what you are looking for, I promise to offer you a wonderful shopping experience. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or requests because it is truly my pleasure to add a link to your story.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

I will work with you regarding custom sizing on any of our items. I want you to have the best buying experience possible and know that sometimes it's difficult to get just the right fit, so we can work together to find the best fit for you. Significant changes may result in a surcharge, which will be discussed as we figure out the fit.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders may take additional time to prepare for shipment, depending on the changes requested. I will provide an estimate of time to complete as we are working on finalizing your order. I will confirm the customization with you prior to starting on your order, so that we make sure that you get exactly what you want.

Custom and personalized orders are not eligible for returns.

Care instructions

Druid Chains makes items in a variety of metals. Care for each metal varies a little - so here is a simple overview of the most frequent metals I use:

Sterling silver jewelry should be cleaned with regular soap and water or a standard silver jewelry cleaner (like Connoisseurs in the red bottle).

Titanium and Niobium jewelry can lose their colors with harsh chemicals, so make sure to stick with warm water and mild soap.

Anodized aluminum and stainless steel clean up quickly with a bit of dish soap and a rinse!

As always, you can contact me with any questions about the care of your new item. Simply email katie@druidchains.com.

All Things Shipping

Purchases from Druid Chains ship using USPS First Class shipping within the US. This will include a tracking number for your convenience.

Druid Chains is not liable for any order that are lost during shipping or stolen from your mailbox. If you've ordered an item and it shows delivered, but you don't have it, I recommend checking with neighbors or family members. However, if you are concerned about not receiving your package, we recommend purchasing a Priority Shipping upgrade with your order - this will include insurance on your purchase up to $50. Druid Chains, on a case by case basis, will reasonably help in any way we can. For more information on priority shipping insurance offered by USPS, please visit their website.

More Shipping!

As a home-based internet business, I get a LOT of packaging from supplies. Druid Chains is committed to reducing waste as much as possible, which means that I re-use these boxes and supplies for shipping out your orders to you. So don't be surprised if you receive your item in a re-used shipping box! It may not be pretty, but it helps conserve just a tiny bit.

For ready-to-ship items, I generally get them packaged and shipped within 24 hours of your order (barring Sundays). Once they are in USPS's hands, I cannot guarantee transit times.

Made to order or custom items may take a day or two - or up to 6 weeks for large custom orders like armor/bikini/clothing - to prepare and ship out. If you have a deadline, reach out to me to discuss.

Why can't I return or exchange my order?

All of my items are handmade and many of them are one of a kind. I’ve made it my policy across my shops to not accept returns due to this. However, I want my customers to have a wonderful experience with my work and I stand behind my products - so size adjustments and customization will always be free of charge. We also offer a one-year repair warranty (below). If you have a problem or concern with your order, please contact me so that we can find the best resolution for you.

Repair Policy

Druid Chains is committed to providing quality, durable accessories. However, from time to time we understand that there may be breakage due to regular wear and tear or a defective piece that wasn't evident during construction. Druid Chains will repair any item free of charge within one year of purchase. Buyer is responsible for shipping the item needing to be repaired to Druid Chains for repair. I recommend using tracked shipping when shipping any items back to the studio. Altering an item after receipt and/or attempting to repair it yourself before contacting Druid Chains for repair will void this repair warranty.
