The Salty Wench

Hoquiam, Washington

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    The Salty Wench strives to balance fun, unusual jewelry and gifts with a reasonable price. I believe that person should be able to find something beautiful, that speaks to their soul, no matter what the price range.

I started The Salty Wench started as a booth at a Renaissance Faire that sold Chain Maille jewelry and costumes. I took a long break due to illness. Though along the way I picked up several new crafts to keep myself sane.

Everything I make would fit right in at a Renaissance Faire or craft Bazaar, yet also would feel at home in almost any situation. I started off doing chain maille , then moved on to chain maille jewelry. Then beading, and now knitting. So the end result is a mix of beads, chain maille, and raw stones that gives my work a very organic and home grown feel. I hope you like it

So many hobbies, so little time.

Long story short, I have too many hobbies. I started making chainmaille to help keep myself sane during a long illness. The problem was that everything seems interesting to me. Chainmaille turned into chainmaille jewelry. That turned into beaded jewelry. Then everything just exploded into every direction. I do knitting, fuse beads, chainmaille, candles, sewn bowls, jewelry, and am starting to get into making bath products. There always seems to be a new technique and hobby to try.

My health is still not great, so I putter around experiment when I am feeling too cooped up. A day curled up with a good movie, a cup of tea, and new knitting design is just my speed.

The Salty Wench strives to balance fun, unusual jewelry with a reasonable price. I make many unique an interesting things. I believe that every person should be able to find something beautiful, that speaks to your soul, no matter what your price.

In the case of chain maille bracelets (and some of the beaded ones), I offer free sizing. Just sent me the measurement, in inches or cm, of how long you want it to be and I'll make the necessary changes before sending it to you.
