Chainmaille me...

I don't know about you but when I see links of metal rings, the first thing that comes to my mind  is pinching, snagging and getting stuck on clothes...maybe that's just 'cause I'm such a klutz *eeps...* But that was before I started wearing theKANG Chainmaille bracelet and I have fallen in love...they are actually comfortable! It flows with my wrist and is lightweight...most of all, it doesn't even snag! *bye bye loose threads*  I wear it almost everyday!<3

Not new in the scene, Chainmaille made its appearance in the 1700s when it was used as an armour during the wars. It was apparently an effective defence against slashing blows by an edged weapon and penetration by thrusting and piercing weapons. Now, I'm not asking you to wear them and start having sword fights but I just love the fact that an ancient protective war gear can evolve to a fashion item! How cool is that?

Handy, practical and gorgeous (could also possibly protect you from errr...paper cuts?). Go ahead, get yourself chainamailled today

With the Chainmaille extraordinaire (and friend), theKANG and my sista!
