Super Wide Stretchy Cuff Custom Order


Getting a request for black or gun-metal rings reminded me how much I love to heat-treat stainless steel! It’s been a long time since I used the treatment for chainmaille.

It was a great opportunity to figure out the weave expansions for European 6-1 while using rubber rings. The fact that every other row of rings is permanently closed makes planning ahead extra important.


Thanks for reading! I post progress shots and other smaller projects on my Instagram. Check it out @allaboutthis.

New Jewelry: Month of May

Here’s a selection of the new jewelry I designed and crafted over the past month. I used to use a lot more copper but shifted at some point towards using mostly silver. Lately I’ve been bringing back the copper and I love it! It brings a lot of warmth to the jewelry and it’s a really fun metal to work with.

Most of these are available in my Etsy shop.

March Jewelry Collection

Throughout March I learned a lot about space and astrophysics. One of my favorite sources of learning has been the Cosmos show. It is hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson and gives an incredible look into our universe. The knowledge I’ve been soaking up has definitely come through as inspiration in my latest work.

The stackers aren’t a new item but I didn’t have any model shots before. Shown on my wonderful model and love of my life Kenzie. I’m really pleased with how these came out, especially because they’re shown as midi rings too!

February Jewelry Collection

February was a great month of creating jewelry. I have some new made-to-order items in the shop and a few one-of-a-kind pieces. I’ve decided to start doing a monthly jewelry post to showcase my latest creations. Without further ado, here is what I made in February.

This last one was a commission so there’s nothing much like it in the shop yet. I just want to show off my new stamps! My old set is all CAPS and block letters. The new stamps are a double set with both upper and lower cases. Best of all they’re a much nicer font that has a hand-written vibe.
