There it is… The Chain Maille Bracelet. Why did I call this post what I did? Let me elaborate. When I first started making the jump rings for the piece, I had all intentions of making a necklace, and adding another type of chain maille weave to the center of the piece to embellish it with beads. The image in my head is one of a truly stunning piece of art, but not one that you would look at and wonder where in the world you would wear it. I make functional pieces.
Let be add that I am working two part-time jobs at the same that I am starting this business. A lot to for one person to undertake, I know. It takes money to make it they say, and without a job -or two- there is no money in the bank.
It is a Wednesday, and I have been smoothing the rough edges to my jumps in the gas station that I work at from noon to 8. (The owners allow me to work on my hobbies and my business after I finish the cleaning and other things that I have to do first.) Enter Mitch, a friend of mine that I met while working at O’Charley’s a while back. I showed him the chain and told him that it was going to be a necklace when I was finished. He asked if he could see it. He draped it over his wrist and said he liked it as a bracelet. He then asked how much it would be it I made it into a bracelet. I told him. He said that he would buy it. As he walked out, I thought I guess it’s a bracelet.
I can recreate the piece. The original is silver colored aluminum. The price list to be added later.
