Chainmail Wine Bottle Cozy

Chainmail Wine Bottle Cozy
Someone asked me once what could I make with chainmail that was not armor or jewelry. I thought about it for some time and came up with a lot of ideas. I created my first chainmail wine bottle cover or cozy sometime around 1999. I cannot for the life of me remember which Renaissance Fair I was at.

I remember pricing it somewhere around $45.00 and selling it within two hours of putting it out for sale in my booth. It took me a couple of hours on the very first one, but I eventually became fast enough to make one in about 30 minutes or so. I have made hundreds of these. I currently sell them for $62.00 because of inflation in material cost and increased shipping cost for the material.

If you are interested in purchasing one, you can find them on my Etsy shop: Chainmail Wine Bottle Cozy You'll find many other items in my shop that are neither armor nor jewelry. After over 25 years of making chainmail I have come up with more than a few cool items. I also do a lot of custom work if you are interested.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them here or send me an e-mail. Thanks for stopping by.
