The Handmade Tweet

Today's Handmade Tweet come from Stygian Chains on etsy.

From StygianChains's Shop Announcement:

"Stygian Chains, the place for handmade chainmaille. I make jewelry, clothing, costuming, and odd little things like pouches and footbags or juggling balls.

"Welcome. Please, please, do come in. Feel free to have a look 'round Don't be shy now."

"See something you like? Or maybe something you might like if it were a little different? You're welcome to tell me. Or if you're looking for something special, something made just for you. I can do it all from a strong steel hauberk to a fair silver bracelet."

Everything in my shop is hand made from the ground up, ring by ring. I do not use lengths of stock chain. Every ring is opened, woven into place, and closed by hand. Rings in most metals will be wound and cut by hand as well."

This is so unique and lovely, and so much work. What a fabulous gift this would make. It's never too early to think about Valentine's Day. ;)  You won't find anything more appropriate for the the chainmaille enthusiast in your life.
