    American Flag

    This flag is made up from 16,500 anodized aluminum rings (purchased from TRL). It measures 13.25" x 19.875" and weighs roughly 2 pounds. I created it using the United States Flag Code as a guideline. It traveled from California to New York in September 2011 for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 where it was at ground zero during the ceremonies and was taken up on stage by my dear friend Barbara Geidel while she read names. It was photographed by renowned photo journalist Allen Tannenbaum and made national news coverage before it then went on to the Rescue Co. 1 firehouse in Manhattan, New York, where it now hangs on their memorial wall. Though I have seen a couple of other flags, as far as I am aware this is the first time that the American Flag has been done to such exacting detail using maille.

    Chain maille "Round Shield" coasters

    I made these chain maille "Round Shield" coasters using bright aluminum rings. The chain maille is attached to a black veg-tanned leather disc that has been stretched and shaped in the center to create the classic 'umbo' found on traditional viking round shields.

    Wine Bottle Sleeve

    I made this wine bottle sleeve using bright aluminum rings. It fits most 750ml bottles, but can also be used for large beer bottles as well. I finished it with a strand of shock cord and a deer antler cord lock that I cut and drilled myself.

    Chain Maille Round Shield Coasters

    3.25" Chain Maille Round Shield Coasters. The chain maille is made from anodized aluminum and attached to a welded steel ring in the center and a 3 inch ID craft ring on the outer edge. It is stitched to a 5 ounce black veg-tanned leather disc using waxed cotton cord. The leather has been stretched and shaped to create and "umbo" in the center of the coaster. I used traditional round shield designs for these to give them a more realistic look.

    Dolphin themed chain maille wind chime. The top hoop is wrapped in Captive Inverted Round, and the hanging chains are Half-Persian 3-1. The center clacker is hung on a 1-1 chain. I crafted this piece and auctioned it off so that a dear friend could take her son, who has DMD, on a trip to Vegas. I chose the dolphin theme because her son loves dolphins.
