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

Returns 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.
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 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.
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.
