My jewelry came neatly packed and wrapped in a pretty mesh bag. The set is absolutely beautiful and I loved it instantly. I receive compliments on it's beauty and unique qualities. William answered all questions quickly and went to work right away on my custom order. The craftmanship is definitely top notch!

The seller was very considerate. We had minor problem with the bracelet and he fixed it immediately and was so accommodating. This seller is definitely a keeper when I am in need of the neat, unusual, well made piece of jewelry whether for myself or as a gift. Also love the way he offers different metals and will even mix them.

About

Why I started this shop

I took a class on jewelry making in high school, but after that I'm mostly self taught. I am always looking for new chains to try, and I'm slowly building my workshop.

I think it would be great to make a living doing what I love, but I figure for that I will need to sell to more people than I meet in person. This online shop allows me to reach new people, and hopefully provide them with something they will enjoy.

My goals for the future (aside from getting more equipment) are things like taking better photos, advertising better, and trying to let people know I am happy to do custom orders.

    I have always loved making things with my own hands. I have been making chainmail and jewelry for about 10 years now. I saw cut all my own rings, and know hundreds of patterns. You pick a metal and name a pattern, I'll make it for you.

Shop policies

I think silver should describe the metal, not the color. I see a lot of coated, anodized, and enameled metals that just look painted to me. I like solid wire that could be put to the torch and still polish to a beautiful shine. I feel the natural colors of the metal look best. Function and strength don't need to be lost when making pretty things.

Additional policies and FAQs
I am willing to take custom orders (within reason), and I know many more patterns than I have the materials to make at one time. Questions or requests will be responded to quickly, and are quite welcome.
