I love the color of that first bracelet. I didn't realize that would be chainmail as well. Its quite beautiful work. Is it very time consuming making the rings?

that make it quiet easy. The longest part is tumbling them to smooth off all the rough edges. I can make a bracelet like that from start to finish in about six hours.

My cousin is a jeweler. I love the artistry and style that changes from designer to designer. I really appreciate custom work that you do not find in the mainstream stores. Do you have an etsy store or webpage? I'm always on the lookout for my wife.

Nevermind, I saw that you answered that question in another response. Keep us updated. I'd love to see more in the future.

I'm selling my house and my studio is all packed up. When I get settled I'll go back to work. Then I'll rebuild my web site and post it for you.

Thank You

You would have been in high demand during the medieval era. (I am imagining a knight in a chain mail hoodie). You must be a very patient person to work with those small rings like that! Just exquisite pieces. Do you sell them?
