The Chains of Ravangel Ringworks

Today I'm going to talk about and show off some of the works my good friend and roommate. He goes by Jareth Valentine. (Seriously. He answers to it in Real Life. He gets mail by that name.) He makes chainmaile. Well, he does a whole lot more then that, but chainmaile is what I'm here to talk about.
Here is some of his necklaces. These are some of his smaller items, but they are his more popular works and sell very well. This is just a small sample. He uses a wide variety of styles and materials with his chains, and an even wider variety with his charms. He makes some of the charms, spends a lot of time hunting down unique ones at thrift stores and flea markets, and others he trades with other artists for. I myself own a very nice choker he made. It's all brass with a hand cast brass dragon charm. It's a personal favorite.
These are his bracelets. Mostly without charms, these are very popular, and he always keeps a stock available. Here you can also see his business card. That is his valid email address: Stellar_raven@hotmail.com. That email is the best way to contact his for commission information or just general questions about his work.

But maybe this isn't what you are interested in. Maybe you don't wear bracelets and don't want a necklace or choker. You want armor! When you here chainmaile you think guys in chain tunics and girls in skimpy metal bikinis. Well, you are in luck. Because he does though to. Here is a picture of one of his chainmaile halter tops. This was a custom order for the girl in question.

All of his work comes with a lifetime warranty. If it breaks, he will fix it. If you outgrow it, he will modify it so it fits again. I own a very nice scalemaile vest he made for me. Prices for larger pieces vary widely based on amount of materials needed, complexity of the piece, and what material you want it made of.

These are the works of Jareth B. Valentine, owner of Ravangel Ringworks.

  1. That bra looks slightly too small for her ( ._.)

    It's busting out the wrong sides.

    But damn, if you're friend makes those necklaces, they are so talented.

  25. As "the girl in question" - or should I say the GIRLS in question - I have something to say about that last picture. I grew by two sizes for no readily apparent reason before the piece was finished. Mr. Valentine was good enough to fix the thing so I could get in it at all! There is a bottom piece to that set and it fits wonderfully.

    I also own a beautiful bracelet done by Valentine in, I want to say, Persian-weave 4-in-1.
