Well we’ve been busy here at Chainmaille By MBOI and are working on new lines and new tutorials. Be patient with us as we are strictly a home based business and also hold full time jobs in other fields.
We still find time to create though. Here’s a peek of whats coming your way, we are planning on releasing a new line of lanyards, pocket watch chains, tutorials and maille kits, and school spirit and awareness items.
The lanyards have been getting a lot of attention and we have only shown one of our prototypes! We plan on putting together some with new weaves and colors.
The pocket watch chains came from a custom order request from one of our clients so props to Michael G. for the idea. They will be a while forthcoming as we are only a 2 person team and it takes us a while.
The school spirit idea was inspired by our local school who takes school spirit to the max. So key chains, necklaces, bracelets, lanyards and the like will be forth coming in a variety of colors. Just about any color and weave combination are possible so if you are interested in promoting your school spirit or local PTA just contact us with your idea. There is no way that we can put every color combination up so let us know your school colors and we’ll show you samples of what we can make. You should also inquire about bulk discounts or wholesale rates, for large quantities we will cut our price within reason to give you a better chance for resale of your items. Just remember though that our items are completely handmade and take a lot of time so don’t expect the discounts to knock your socks off but they will be discounts nonetheless.
We are also in the process of making more tutorials and chainmaille kits for those of you who are interested in learning to create jewelry for yourselves. These tutorials take a lot of time to make as we are painstaking in our efforts to create an easy to follow step by step guide so that your experience will be fun and not frustrating. I can’t tell you how many times I struggled for hours trying to learn a new weave, taking it apart and putting it back together again. So I believe I will start putting a starter piece in the kits so that if you have trouble you will be able to pick up the weave off the starter piece. The tutorials come with the kits and are sold separately as well and can be downloaded immediately upon receipt of payment. We will provide full email support for all our tutorials.
So that is our up and coming update on what you will be seeing in the coming months from Chainmaille By MBOI any other ideas or custom projects you may want just ask and we’ll try to accommodate you. Sign up to our feed to stay up to date with current posts and products.
