    In My Studio: Anodized Aluminum Chainmaille

    Good Morning,

    The elf has been busy this weekend, weaving and linking rings to create new and wonderful bracelets in bright and colorful anodized aluminum.

    If you love the look of Chainmaille but think the pieces are too heavy in all that stainless steal and brass, we have a beautiful solution.  Easy to care for, super lightweight and stunning in a variety of colors, patterns and weaves, Anodized and Natural Silver aluminum has all the style and none of heft.

    We are expecting more colors and sizes soon.  Have a favorite pattern that you would really like to have, but it's just to heavy or too much?  Contact us and we can make that piece in Aluminum and of course precious metals, too.  Many of the pieces you see in the shop can be made in aluminum, do not hestitate to ask us for that special piece.  We love custom orders!

    Currently listed on The CraftStar, these will have twin listings on etsy, if that is your preferred shopping site.

    This is a brand new weave called "Elf Weave Braid" and can be customized in your favorite colors or single color of choice.
