Each of my chainmaille pieces is made by hand by Donna Barrett in her studio located in Sea Cliff, NY. Appointments to come see the shop can be made by submitting a contact form here.
Sterling Silver & Other Metals
When I began making chainmaille I used mostly sterling silver and I enlisted my husband to use my jumpringer system to cut the rings. Now I use many more types of materials, some I cut myself and some I can buy online from vendors that make pre-cut rings that are ready for use!
How do I do it?
I like to use two pair of pliers when I am working. One I use to hold the last ring in the chain, the other is used to open and grab a jump ring and then add it to the main chain. This process continues following the various patterns I weave, one link at a time!
