My Bio
I've always had some form of creativity, though in my youngest years it was usually legos. When I got older I started getting into wood crafting (and still do today), it's just hard to keep up on when you don't have space for a shop.

When my friends at college started getting me into EarthDawn, I was introduced to chainmail by our GM. I saw the awesome stuff he made and quietly watched him assemble pieces on occasion. Eventually, I decided to try my hand at it. I got some old pliers and wire from the hardware store and made my own rings by winding them around a screw. It tore up my hands and wasn't very pretty, but I learned a lot about it and really enjoyed the process. I kept at it, learning more and improving after each piece, and found that the enjoyment didn't die. Now it's one of my main hobbies, border lining on a side business. I don't make quite enough to quit my day job, but enough for the hobby to fund itself, both in supplies and a few trips, and still make me a little extra money on the side.

All of my chainmail works are being submitted under the Creative Commons License. Fellow crafters can feel free to copy or draw inspiration from my works (I'm not really worried about it, since it's the physical medium that's being sold). All I ask is that you send a nod my direction when/if possible.

Thanks for the fav..:hug::heart:
very nice work; I was wondering if you might have an Etsy store?
I did post on Etsy years ago, but I didn't get enough sales to keep it going, nor did I get enough traffic to justify continuing to post there.  I will, however, do direct sales and commissions through Paypal.  If there's something you're interested in, send me an email at bradschainmailcreations@gmail.com.
Ok, will do. Thanks :)
Oh, wow, your work is fantastic.
It was really great sitting next to you, your girl and your friends!!
Thanks, you too! I hope I can manage to make a go of the Artist Alley again next year. If not, I'll definitely still attend and make sure to stop by.
