Chain Maille is an ancient art that dates back to the 5th century when it was used to make protective garments for soldiers in battle. Over time the technique of interweaving metal rings has been adapted into the art of jewelry making which often involve the use of very intricate weaves. Each jump ring is opened and closed by hand with pliers and is quite labor intensive but the result is an exquisite durable treasure. In this age of electronic gratification and mass produced products the art of hand made chain maille jewelry gives one a greater appreciation for the ancient arts. Most pieces can be customized to your desired length.
