HAF Featured Artist Chainmaille by MBOI

I am pleased to present to you, this weeks HAF featured artist  Chainmaille by MBOI aka Andrew, the other half of the founders of Handmade Artists ForumHandmadeArtistsShop and the Blog for both.  It seems to me that doing that would be a full time job, however, Andrew also holds down a full time job, is a husband & father, and somehow manages to find a little time to do some incredible chainmaille.  Oh yeah, did I also mention he finds time to promote, promote, promote..........................when does this guy sleep???

Just for fun, I tried doing some "simple" (is there such a thing?) chainmaille, I had little rings flying all over the place.  This isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world to do!  Besides keeping everything straight, just handling all those rings and making sure they are closed nice and tight, WOW!!! I'll let the pro's like Andrew do it!
Enough said, enjoy some of  Andrew's work, 
This Dainty Sterling Silver Roundmaille Bracelet is a custom order, sorry you can't purchase this one, but you can ask to have one created just for you!

Earrings - How many of you women (and some men) always wear earrings even if you don't wear any other jewelry?? Me too! Love these Sterling Silver Shazero Earrings

Oh, yeah did I mention that Andrew also makes his own rings, seriously! And then makes beautiful creations such as this SterlingSilverHalfPersian4in1Bracelet

See something you like, but want a bracelet or a necklace instead?  Just ask, Andrew is more than happy to do custom orders! One of the things that is so great about many of the artisans who offer their handmade creations.

I highly recommend checking out Chainmaille by MBOI
As always, thanks so much for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
