Precious Metals, Practical Pricing

By Aislyn Bryan August 20, 2015 4945 Views No comments

Since almost all of our rings are made of precious metals, the prices we pay for materials fluctuate with the metals markets. In the years we've been in business, we've tried out every conceivable method for accurately syncing the price we're paying for materials to the price you're paying for our rings. The reason it's tricky is because...

Shop by Weave: Ever So Dreamy <3

By Aislyn Bryan August 1, 2015 4809 Views No comments

In 12 years of business, and 6 incarnations of our website, this -- the brand new Shop by Weave -- is finally, finally, the shopping experience we've always wanted to offer. It's not easy to present a lot of options while keeping the page simple and intuitive but that's finally what we have. I hope you love it as much as we do.

Shop by Weave is for buying rings by the weave inch. Choose the weave you like, the size and the metal, and enter the number of inches you want to make, all on one page. The cart will show you the perfect ring size(s) and tell you how many per inch you'll need and you can add them to your cart with a keystroke. Rings for medallions are available the same way, but per medallion rather than per weave inch. The price for rings purchased through Shop by Weave is now exactly the same as for rings purchased by-the-ring so that you're truly free to use whichever method best suits you in the moment.

UM kits like the Graduated European 4-in-1 Collar and the Perfect Rings are available in their own section now and there's another section for Designer Ringsets. (You'll find all these sections in the main menu on the left side of our home page.)

Let us know what you think. :)

Why Professionals Buy Our Rings

Note: The following information is meant for people who are in the business, or plan to be in the business, of making and selling jewelry that utilizes maille techniques. This article consists of very specific business advice delivered quite bluntly. Personally, I much prefer the truth to anything sugar coated and I try to treat others as I want to be treated. If you're trying to get a business off the ground in a competitive industry during a tough economic period, you don't need sunshine and rainbows, you need honest, insightful business advice from people running successful businesses. I'm giving you that, but the advice of anyone who sells what he or she is advising you to buy should always be closely scrutinized. With that in mind, I'm speaking very bluntly to make it easier for you to scrutinize my points and judge them for yourself.
