Get to Know

I began with chainmail in 1999. I was young (okay, not that young) and full of medieval role-playing passion. Made quite a few chainmail armour pieces, but then decided I would rather use my skill to create jewelry. After a few years of making chainmail jewelry, I am branching out and learning some metal smithing techniques and I now design some of my components like pendants. Wirework is also an important part of my collection. I also like to recycle old jewelry into new, mostly through my earrings collection, but some reused parts do find their way into other pieces as well. I also create nice little things out of wire to decorate the table, such as napkin rings and wine glass markers. All my creations come from a smoke-free and pet-free environment.
