A "Chain" Reaction

It was at this year's 57th Street Art Fair that I discovered the magnificent jewelery line known as Rapt in Maille.

We all know that chain jewelry is very prevalent in the fashion world now but there is something extremely unique about Rapt in Maille. At first glance, you'll notice that the designs are much more sophisticated than what you would find at a typical store. The intricate details are breathtaking and rightfully so since each piece is handmade by local designer, Melissa Banks. I also love the fact that with so many collections within the Rapt in Maille line, there is something for every taste and every occasion. So, you can ALL join in the fun!!

Below are the items currently on my "must-have" list.

Clockwise from top left:

1. Pure Collection: Rectangle Ring - $75
2. Halo Collection: Multi-Chain Necklace - $245
3. Slinky Collection: Squares Bracelet - $215
4. Slinky Collection: Scrap Bracelet - $115

You can check out all of these items and a ton more at To view the items in person and truly appreciate the workmanship, you can check out Rapt in Maille at the Lakeview East Art Festival, September 26th-27th.

And since you already know my wishlist, you know exactly what to buy me. THANKS!

Thank you for writing this wonderful post. I JUST got your messages on Twitter. What can I say? I am more of a Facebook fan than a Twitter fan. My Facebook updates automatically go to Twitter, so I rarely pay attention, and am therefore a little bit of a Twitter novice.

I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you!

Thanks again for the shout-out,
Melissa @ Rapt in Maille
