  • The year you started making chainmail
    2007
  1. I recently tried selling my maille in a store in Salem MA. They explained they already carry maille done by someone else. Of course i scoped it, and discovered *ahem* "jewelry" that I would be ashamed to sell. The closures were all gapped, mishapen, and cut with perhaps rusty bolt cutters. Prices were 5 & 6 times what a properly constructed item would be tagged, and she claimed it was selling quite well. It's sad that there are so many who have the mentality "i can do that", and really can't. I feel like it gives responsible maillers a bad name.

    Looking for Maroon AA 18g 1/4.

    I believe UnkamenSupplies has maroon rings. If you're still looking.

    How do you display your jewerly?

    I use fireplace screens, plant stands, and some regular jewelry displays.. I'll try to dig up some pics from shows. The screens enable me to see people in front of the table, and also are wind resistant-which is a big bonus at outdoor events.

    Custom Laser Wood Engraving

    I would still like to inquire about having business info engraved on large AA scales to use as business cards for big shows & repeat customers. How many lines of text (and what size) could you do?

    How do you save space?

    I use bead cases (sometimes also used as embroidery floss cases) available in most craft stores for about a buck-one for each size ring in anodized, and a parts bin for the BA, SSTL, Brass & Copper. They used to be stored under my desk-stacked 6 high-with the showing side labeled with ring size. Now I have them all on a bookshelf.

    Mis-stamped Scale

    I've gotten a few "mid-punched" scales. Some stamped off to one side, still usable though.

    Weaves you DON'T like?

    I am not a big fan of Euro4-1, or Helm Chain. Byzantine gets boring real fast, but its pretty, and sells well for me.
  15. This is something that has caused me an issue or 3 at different local craft fairs/flea markets. The "Catalog jewelry" sales people. I have had the misfortune of being placed next to them on several occasions. More often than not, they are boisterous, obnoxious people who will stop at nothing, to make sure people buy their product. From insults, to knocking my displays over to chase people away from my table-it has been a terrible experience. I often request to ON:Y be placed near handcraft jewelry tables, if not away from jewelry all together. Still, coordinators feel it necessary to have what I call "jewelry row" which often hurts all of us. Just wondering if it's me, or if anyone else has had a negative encounter with any of them.
