A Lifetime of Jeweler

A Lifetime of Jeweler

Hey there! My name is Carmen and I've spent almost my entire life working in the jewelry industry. I've done all sorts of things in the jewelry world, from making wax models for pieces of jewelry to setting precious stones, repairing jewelry that's been damaged by wear and tear, and many other jewelry-related tasks.

But recently, my curiosity led me to discover the world of chain mail armor. The history of this technique goes back thousands of years to ancient times and I think it deserves a little more time to talk about its origins and will have a later and more extensive entry in a future post. Below I present some photographs of chain mail costumes used in the Middle Ages.

Chainmaille technique is the same technique used to weave armor. The difference is that this word is currently used to define what would be pieces of jewelry such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Chainmaille is a fascinating technique that draws in anyone who tries it. With so many different types of mesh to create jewelry, it's easy to get lost in the beauty of the rings, colors, and metals. That's what happened to me!

And here I am, creating my own jewelry made with the chainmaille technique. I'm creating a world of color, harmony, and beauty. I want my creations to inspire the same emotions in those who wear them that it inspires in me: the delicacy of its curves, the harmony of its movement, and the vivid color in all its shades.

A piece of jewelry can be a symbol of love, a gift of friendship, or a reminder of a special occasion. It can be a way to show someone how much you care, or it can be a way to celebrate a milestone in your life. This is what Chainmaille Jewelry means to me.

With love and appreciation to all
