We are a husband and wife team that began making chainmaille jewellery 10 years ago. Training has included some intensive courses at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, along with one to one tuition from other silversmiths and jewellers. However, practice has been the main ingredient.
In 2012 we started taking the jewellery to local shows and steadily increased our efforts by exhibiting at national events. Four years ago we took on a small studio in Stourbridge where we made and sold the jewellery.
More recently, an operation at the beginning of this year (2020), which required three months convalescence, gave us time to develop this website and an online presence which we’d been planning for a long while. Lockdown at the end of March meant problems with events, suppliers and even the Birmingham Assay Office being restricted, but like many people we continue to work on, in the hope of returning to more normal times.
