Heirloom-Quality Handcrafted Jewelry

The Chained Dragon is a small, home-based business owned by me, Lorelei Logsdon. I design, handcraft, photograph, and personally ship each item in my store from my smoke-free studio workshop in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I have been designing jewelry for over a decade, beginning in 2005 when I specialized in Swarovski crystal earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Over the years I've learned dozens of techniques and skills, but recently have focused exclusively on chainmail. These exquisite pieces take a lot of time and skilled craftsmanship (and an abundance of patience) to handcraft. It is truly a labor of love.

All these pieces are perfect as gifts for special occasions such as Christmas, a wedding, birthday, Valentine's Day, or an anniversary. The simple, classic beauty of the designs are always in style, and offer amazing versatility--going seamlessly from the office, to brunch, to an elegant cravate noir event.

The materials I use are carefully selected from highly reputable suppliers, offering outstanding quality and unmatched purity. This attention to detail shows, with each of my jewelry pieces having wonderful sparkle and shine.

In summary, a timeless piece of jewelry from The Chained Dragon today is an investment in tomorrow's legacy, providing a priceless heirloom that will be a family treasure for decades to come.

Frequently asked questions

I am happy to resize most of my designs upon request if you don't see your size available. Please note that due to the nature of some of my chainmail designs, certain sizes may not be possible. Please message me for more info about sizing.

HOW TO MEASURE: Use a soft, flexible tape measure and wrap it snugly around your wrist and/or ankle. If you don't have a flexible tape measure, wrap a string around your wrist and/or ankle, and then measure the string with a ruler.

A general rule of thumb is to add 1/2-1 inch to your wrist/ankle size when choosing a chain length. If your measurement falls between sizes, always round up to the next size.

Bracelets - 7.5 inches
Necklaces - 17 inches
Rings - 7
Anklets - 9 inches

Due to the handcrafted nature of my designs, each item will be unique. No two are exactly alike and every item may be slightly different than the product photos.

E-checks through PayPal may take 5-7 business days to clear and may delay shipping of your purchase. Shipment will not occur until the payment has fully cleared.

Layaway plans are available for any item $100 or more, or any order total over $100. Choose "Other" when choosing your payment option.

When I receive your eligible order, I will issue a PayPal invoice for the full amount due. The invoice will allow partial payments. You pay however much you want however often you want, though the full balance is due within a maximum of three months. If the full payment has not been received within three months from the date of order, the layaway plan will be cancelled and all monies returned, less a 25% administrative fee based on the original order amount.

Item(s) will be shipped once the full payment has been received.

--> Marking an order "gift" means no receipt will be included with the order.
--> Including a gift message means your personalized message will be printed on the Etsy gift receipt.
--> Choosing gift wrap means the item(s) will be placed in a box, wrapped in a neutral shade of wrapping paper, and tied with ribbon. (See example photo when checking out.)

Occasion-specific wrapping paper is available upon request, including anniversary, birthday, Christmas, etc. Please include a note with your order with any special requests.

The shipping label will comply with your country's applicable laws, including describing contents and their actual price, if necessary.

4.) Send me the tracking number and the name of the shipping provider through an Etsy message.
