Beginning in 1992 I have been creating chainmail jewelry using a variety of materials. I work primarily in fine silver, sterling silver, titanium, and rarely in 18k or 24k gold. The jewelry I create uses hand made components, except for clips and clasps that are readily commercially made. I have the facilities to draw my own wire when needed to match off size and weird gauges. Each silver piece is hand soldered, one ring at a time (unless otherwise stated).
I use fused fine silver (.999) in a variety of chains. Fine silver does not tarnish since there is very little copper in the alloy unlike sterling silver (.925).
