Ok where to begin? The quality of the product is top notch. Beautiful material and so comfortable. Elaine’s skills are outstanding! Every piece is precisely made and professionally finished.In addition to fantastic quality, the customer service is excellent. I had a funny circumstance where I could not get an exact size as it was a surprise gift. Elaine made it so ez for me. The bracelet I got fit my wife perfectly but she actually sent me two pieces, varying slightly in length, to make sure that I had a perfect gift on the actual day.I really appreciated her attention to detail and the super service. I’ll be shopping at her store again soon.Highly recommend!!Wolfie

I absolutely loved my earrings and bracelet. They are fun, edgy and very light. Even though the bracelet had to be adjusted to fit my wrist size, I received them very fast.

I love the beautiful bracelet I bought. The designer was also willing to customize it for me, putting on a different type of bead. And she offered great customer service, helping me determine the right size, and then shipping it to me very quickly. I am very happy. Now I just have to see how long I can hold off the temptation to buy something else. No

Elaine Unzicker

Artist and Women's Empowerment Couturière

I create seductive, wearable objects combining jewelry techniques with chain mail to caress the female body. As a child, I was taught to be quiet and not express myself even though I noticed creativity flowing through my grandmothers fingers in the form of quilt-making. I find my voice when I create art through the meditative state of linking one ring at a time. When knitted with thin metal wire and small rings this masculine, war-like material becomes extremely soft and flowing. The ritual of laying the transparent veil of chain mail on a woman invokes a sense of security and a feeling of empowerment. My creations are a merging of art and history in the intimate setting of a woman’s body.

Lately, I’ve become fascinated with the color and pattern of chain mail. I was reminded of the quilt squares my grandmother Minnie always had sitting by her chair. These thoughts led to a series of wall pieces relating to a quilt square format. “Legacy” being the first in the series, a pattern created using bright colors similar to hers. Translating the material to a wall format has opened a whole new venue for my art with new directions.
