Meet the Maker
Hello, my name is Amanda, I am a housewife, a cat-mom, a rainbow lover and Maker of many things.
It seems like I have always been crafting something. I learned to sew, crochet, and embroider from my grandmothers when I was young and that was just the beginning of my love of making things. I have gone through phases in my life where I have crafted many things, it seems like almost everything. I love embroidery, cross-stitch, and floral arranging but I have also made Christmas wreaths, scrapbooks, and leather crafts.
I started making chainmaille jewelry around 2012. It didn't take long for "playing with rings" to become an addiction. As I learned more chain patterns, I also learned to use better quality rings and materials. I still love light-weight, small silver- and gold-plated rings, but I also use a variety of anodized aluminum of various gauges and sizes. I am careful to make sure that all my rings are made with nickel-free materials, but occasionally some clasps and charms are not guaranteed nickel-free. I know lots of people have metal sensitives and allergies (I do too) and I promise to clearly mark all of my products, so that you will always know what you are getting.
Part of why my chainmaille is priced higher than some others is because of the number of hours I spend on each piece. I probably could make things faster, but they would not be the quality I expect of myself. I am a bit O.C.D. so I tend to obsess over my ring closures. I know it is not possible to close every single ring perfectly, but I try. I aim for tight fits with good alignment not only side to side but top to bottom. In general, if I can see space/light then it's not right and I will do it again. I believe that gaps and misalignment lead to snagging and snagging leads to damage and breakage, so I work very hard to avoid that.
In recent years I have also started to make art in various other forms and mediums, from wire tree sculptures to paintings on canvas and the occasional combination.
How it’s Made
A glimpse into RainbowMaille's studio
RainbowMaille's wire tree art or dream-catchers, if you prefer, start with pre-made hoops in sizes that range from 3" - 10". Made with a wide variety of wire materials and gauges in many colors there are tons of possibilities, even before you get to the beads and charms which are virtually endless options.
There are multiple styles of trees available :
1.) "Decorative art" Art just for the sake of pretty art
2.) "Family Tree" made with birthstone colored beads and other special and hidden meanings.
3.) "Keepsake" A style that incorporates a small glass vial that you can fill with your special memento/reminder be that a lock of hair, sand from the beach where you had your honeymoon, gold you panned on that amazing family vacation, anything you can imagine and/or fit inside.
4.) "Fairy door" The newest version of a keepsake tree with a functional locket incorporated in the trunk.
I happily do custom orders for wire trees, it does take a bit of back and forth communication to establish all the specific and special details.
Welcome to RainbowMaille, I try to use only nickel-free and hypoallergenic materials in my jewelry, if I ever use anything that is not nickel-free the listing will specify that. The wall art is not made with nickel- free materials because it is not meant to be worn.
