Announcement   Stygian Chains, the place for handmade chainmaille. I make jewelry, clothing, costuming, and odd little things like pouches and footbags or juggling balls.

"Welcome. Please, please, do come in. Feel free to have a look 'round Don't be shy now."

"See something you like? Or maybe something you might like if it were a little different? You're welcome to tell me. Or if you're looking for something special, something made just for you. I can do it all from a strong steel hauberk to a fair silver bracelet."

I'm happy to take custom orders if your heart's set on something a little different. Just the same, I'll make fitting adjustments to any necklace, bracelet, anklet in the store, all you have to do is ask me to add or remove an inch or two. If it still doesn't fit, mail it back and I'll adjust it again at no charge.

--Updates, new projects, and a little about my craft and methods--

Everything in my shop is hand made from the ground up, ring by ring. I do not use lengths of stock chain. Every ring is opened, woven into place, and closed by hand. Rings in most metals will be wound and cut by hand as well.

From my dear customers.

I ordered the earrings for a special event 12 days from the order date. Seller let me know via Etsy message that he thought he had some in stock but realized upon receiving my order than he didn't. No worries. He made them and got them into the mail within a day or so, and I received the earrings a few days later. n nThe earrings themselves are quite lovely. As intricate and striking in person as they are in the picture -- even more so! n nGreat work, great transaction. Thanks, again!

Hi there. This is Stygian Chains, a hobby gone horribly fun. I hand craft maille (Chainmail) jewellery, clothing, accessories, decor, and just about anything else you or I could think of. Just about any material is an option too. Copper, aluminium, stainless steel, sterling silver, even titanium just to name a few.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
For the time being, I can accept PayPal and major credit cards through PayPal. Residents of Indiana should be aware that I must add a 7% sales tax. (Look for a "request money via PayPal" notice for orders shipped within Indiana.)
Shipping
Shipping is done via USPS first class post in a padded envelope for smaller items such as jewellery. Who doesn't love a little bubblewrap to play with? Larger items may include options for other parcel services. All shipments will include delivery confirmation. Insured or certified post arrangements can be made through convo with a reasonable fee to cover the increased shipping costs.

I use recycled and/or surplus packaging wherever possible. If you'd like something gift-wrapped or specialty packaging of any kind please let me know and we can work something out.

All items will be shipped within four days of sale or in the case of a custom order within four days of completion. In most cases however I am able to have your purchase packaged and on it's way the following day.
Refunds and Exchanges
Guarantees, refunds, repair and the like are not yet standardized but I will currently discuss such things on a case to case basis with customers to make everything right.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept custom orders and commissions through Etsy, and do my best to ensure you'll get what you're expecting by keeping in touch regularly. I'll also do my best to meet any deadlines you might have for the shipping date of an order. If there's any doubt I can make a deadline, you'll be informed up front before any payment is received. Expect for custom orders I will have to mail order supplies myself. The cost of these supplies must be provided through a payment of 50% of the final project price before I commit to ordering supplies or commencing with a project. This will keep everyone happy, the birds will sing, the squirrels will scamper, the deer will romp.

I do not, under any circumstances, certify anything made by Stygian Chains to be a protective device. In other words, if I make a chain shirt, it's a shirt, not armour. By commiting to purchase any item from this store you acknowledge that you alone are responsible for the actions you take while wearing it. If a re-enactment or other similar group examines your product and decides it meets their standards for activities, that is solely that group's decision and liability.

Due to the very nature of my art, maille is simply not suitable for young children. While my rings won't come loose on their own, they could potentially be pried open by little hands or teeth and pose a choking hazard. Please keep the little ones safe by keeping any small objects out of their reach.
