As a Colorado based business that is passed from Master to Apprentice, we have a cumulative 50+ years of experience within our chainmail jewelry craft! We have been in business under different masters long enough now to see our pieces passed down in families. It's such an honor to see the longevity and such love, in our items.
We are a small business made up of friendships, hard work, and pure creativity. We are so excited every time this number grows as it means our chainmail family is getting a little bigger!
We strive every year to bring something new and exciting to our jewelry and armor product lines. Be it a new crystal color, a semi-precious stone, or a new design! Not to mention our custom projects made just for you; if you can think it we can link it!
You read that right! Khatovar Chainmail is our original, legacy business name. We will continue to bare this name at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, but outside of that we have rebranded to A Link Above! As we want to be a link above the rest, a household name for quality chainmail jewelry and armor pieces.
