Hey Armored Hearts fans and future patrons!

The goals I have for maille are vast. They are a threefold philosophy:

First, Discovery: I'd love to help more people discover the art of Chainmaille. Whether it's introducing someone to the History of chainmaille armor, to applications in Modern films, or practical use, (Yes, people use chainmaille armor for practical reasons), Fashion or fun. Learning is a wonderful thing.

Secondly, Enjoyment: Enjoying art is something that is learned. If you enjoy art as decor, buy some and start a collection. If you enjoy art by trying to create; buy a kit or take a class and make something. If you enjoy art by making it possible for someone, like me, to continue offering opportunities to own and try making chainmaille, become my Patron!

And Last, but never least; Education: Learning the Who, When, Where, How and Why is exciting and helps make sense of the world we live in. Cultures teach their members and others the answers to these questions and people thrive on learning and the progression of their communities. I've been teaching for 7 years. I'm always learning new aspects of this lost Art. In my Patrons only Updates, I'll share with you what I've learned and what makes chainmaille one of my deepest passions.

Every evolving is my skill set and my goals to take chainmaille from the things of legend: Movies and Ren Fair fame, to wearable art, functional decor and finally apparel. 

Jewelry is a quick fix to share with others the intricacy of chainmaille. I love making jewelry to sell and gift to others. But I want to take it further. Having a piece or collection of items for home decor is a way to appreciate this artform. Wearing elaborate pieces of chainmaille and scalemaille clothing is a fantastic way to express your passion for unique, handmade items. 

Your support allows me to create, design and share all of these and more. I hope to branch out into live streaming videos to instruct, inform, introduce and inspire you to explore the world of Chainmaille.

Showing your support with a token of a dollar a month actually may not sound like a lot to you but it tells me that you are genuinely interested in assisting me with my Threefold Goals of Discovery, Enjoyment and Education in the Maille Arts. You'll get access to all of my $1 Patron updates each month. Yup, you get a peek of what I'm making, the ability to send  good vibes and show people that Art is not dead, because of your help. So, thanks!
Pledge $5 or more per month
Even a fiver each month can help me meet my Tools Goal and keep the necessary findings and accessories on hand. By helping out at the $5 per month level you get access to my Patron's only feed.  When I am able, I will randomly send out a small token of my appreciation for those who can't afford the big bucks but want to help get those goals met and see this Artform thrive. 

Thanks a bunch!

For your pledge of $10 per month, you receive items like pendants, earrings, key chains, rings and more. I'll post each month's prize in an Update. Each Patron in this reward tier will receive one item of my choice. When there are 10 patrons who pledge $10 per the month I will post 3 choices of the reward for this level. 
You're awesome thanks!
Pledge $25 or more per month

Wow, you're really interested aren't you? For your pledge of $25 a month, you'll receive a ring, anklet or bracelet of my choice.  Again, when I have at least 10 patrons pledging $25 per month the choices will widen. 

Many thanks!

Are you stalking me? :) 
I love being supported by people who are passionate. If you pledge $50 you receive a chainmaille pouch, fun to hold your most precious things. Silver aluminum will be the color made. Or you may choose a necklace. When  there are 10 patrons pledging $50 per month, I will offer a selection and color pallette you'll love, because shiny pouches and necklaces in a rainbow of colors are rare and special. LIKE YOU!
Pledge $75 or more per month
only 10 left

Wow! You must really like these shiny creations. Your support is making me blush! For your generous $75 pledge each month, not ONLY do you receive $10 credit in my Etsy shop each month, you also will receive a knitted scalemaille pouch in a choice of 10 different colors. This pouch is knitted in black acrylic yarn and each scale is hand applied. Great as a dice bag, a pouch, girls night out or to keep jewelry or other valuables as safe as any loot in a dragon's lair would be. You may also choose a Necklace and bracelet set from shiny silver aluminum with or without colored anodized aluminum.
Goals
$5 of $25 per month
This campaign will focus on setting up my tools and workspace.

Items I need are:
Tool Stand, to hold, pliers and cutter, Tool Magic, a latex coating for pliers that prevents scratching. Tool Magic is a temporary coating that needs to be replenished usually during one session of chainmailling. I need to keep some on hand for each project.Supplies and Findings: Some examples of these items are gift boxes, earring wires (until I have the tools and wire to make them myself) clasps, cording and crimps for silk cord necklaces and other items that need to be replenished on a regular basis.
