Mermaid's Dream Jewelry

Chain Maille Jewelry

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
- Oscar Wilde



I must start this page by saying that chain maille is one of my very favorite things. There is nothing like starting with a bit of wire and creating the intricate, high quality pieces in the photos below. Chain maille is the ancient art of weaving wire rings. Mermaid's Dream chain maille is hand-woven by yours truly using high quality sterling silver, copper, or 14 kt. gold-filled wire. Every link is made by hand.  When you order a piece from this website I will custom make it just for you so the size and clasp style are a perfect fit! Since each piece is custom made, please call for availability or allow a few weeks - especially during the holidays.
