    A little bit of history!

    hain maille is thought to have been invented before the 5th century by the ancient Celts. The name is derived from the French ‘maille’, which is derived from the Latin word 'macula' meaning 'mesh of a net'. There are three main types of chain mailed European, Japanese and Persian. This bracelet has been made using the half Persian 3-in-1 weave, one of the newer chain maille weaves.

    In these modern times jewellery made using these medieval techniques create a modern industrial meeting historical armour look. Chain maille jewellery pieces are very durable piece as can been shown in the medieval armour that was made back then which we can still see today in museum or even at the butchers where it is worn to protect their hands. It is also found being used by scuba divers who work with sharks.
