elise chainmaille jewelry

 Elise Kreinbring

It began with a need that spread to an idea. Then the idea melded with another and another until a chain of ideas forced us to willingly strike while the iron was–oh, nevermind. That cliche wasn’t going anywhere less…cliche.

Basically, we’re a two-woman small business operating in the Pacific Northwest. We sell science fiction & fantasy books and chainmaille jewelry inspired by these books.

Elise Kreinbring is the chainmaille artist half of Books & Chains. When she’s not making chainmaille jewelry, she’s playing with her kitties or gaming. Elise is also the co-owner of a music venue and art gallery in Second Life.

SF/F Author Raven Oak

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is the writer half of Books & Chains. She’s best known for her novels Amaskan’s Blood (Book I of the Boahim Trilogy), Class-M Exile, and Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

When she’s not writing, she’s getting her game on with tabletop & video games, indulging in cartography, or staring at the ocean.
