Get to Know

Threaded Chains is located in northern New Jersey in Wayne and officially launched sometime in mid to late 2009. The shop is run by myself, Remmie. What originally begun as a place for me to sell my drawn artwork has since blossomed into so much more.



Selling both handmade and vintage has allowed me to draw inspiration from many places. I am inspired by nature, other artists and artisans, and vintage to name a few. It's been amazing to be able to talk with Vintage and Handmade lovers alike. Threaded Chains currently offers handmade jewelry and accessories as well as Vintage finds. Common materials used in my handmade works include silver and gold plated findings but I have also slowly begun expanding my lines to include precious metals like sterling silver, gold, and platinum.



When I bring new vintage items to the shop I rely on my mother, Karen, to get to the bottom of each piece's story. Her efforts go a long way in helping to make listing new Vintage items go that much smoother. Most of our Vintage comes from my Nana who no longer has use for them and it has been Karen's hard work and effort that has since allowed us to get these pieces tagged, bagged, and ready for sale.



A big thing I love to do for customers is writing little thank you notes and gift wrapping handmade item orders. It's something you don't see done at big box stores and I feel it makes customers feel special getting that little extra bit of individual attention.



Beginning in 2013 I began attending craft shows. Threaded Chains is now no longer an online only shop. I am still able to offer gift wrapping at these venues as well. I was a nervous wreck when I attended my first craft show but I learned so much and I can't wait to continue expanding in the future.



It has been a pleasure meeting new people both online and off and I look forward to what the future holds for me and my little business.
