These heavy duty, hand painted mugs measure 5” tall with a 4” wide opening and hold 16oz when filled to the top. The glass is absolutely clear and has been hand painted with fat pumpkins and bright sunflowers that are perfect for your coffee or tea! This is for a set of 4, but I will gladly take requests for lesser or greater numbers.

This necklace is my first attempt at Steampunk. It’s made using jewelers brass in a full persian weave. The necklace measures 22″ long as I felt the pendant should hang a little lower than normal because of the size. The pendant is the inards of a Elgin Natonal Pocket watch that has been wrapped with a 3/4 persian and some modification to hold the watch in place. The pendant is 2″ in diameter and whole piece is a weighty 5 ounces. This piece is also reversible if you need a different look, the back of the pendant will give off a different feel dependant on where your wearing to. The clasp is a handmade hammered brass “S” clasp. As always we can re-size the necklace to your required lenght as needed. This is one of a kind piece and will not be reproduced.

Many of you may be saying why is a chainmailler helping their competition, well I’ll tell you. I know that I’m not the only game in town selling chainmaille, their are many, but I might have something that she doesn’t sell and visa versa. So instead of competing against each other we are keeping our customers educated about what is available out there.

Just a side note Kimberly my partner in crime with MBOI lost her grandmother to breast cancer in 2003 this was a very tough thing to go through as you can imagine as her grandmother was an intregal part of her upbringing in Montana. Her grandmother honestly is directly responsible for our business starting as she got Kimberly involved in crafts at a young age.
Anyway, please go and support this cause.
