Chainmaille has a history in Scotland dating back to Roman times, through the Viking and Medieval eras. It is created from a myriad of small metal rings, individually joined to form geometric patterns. Alistair creates a range of chainmaille jewellery and accessories inspired by the tales of the Celtic goddess Bhrìghde, patron of poetry and smithing, using mixed metals including stainless steel and colourful anodized aluminium.
