This Weeks Featured Artisan is Chainmaille by MBOI

Chainmaille is an ancient art that dates back before the 5th century.  The process involves interweaving rings of various sizes into intricate patterns to create wearable metal art.  In ancient times, chainmaille served the useful purpose of protecting soldiers in battle; but, since there are very few jousting matches happening on modern streets, chainmaille has evolved into wearable art.  ChainmailleByMBOI creates pieces using a variety of metals including Sterling Silver, Copper, Aluminum, Brass, and Bronze.  Almost any pattern that you see can be created from a different metal so if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate tocontact us and we will be happy to begin a special order for you.
