Chained Elegance is a company dedicated to the creation of unique hand made garments and accessories. Shaun Mendes, the founder of the company and product designer, started with (chain)mail armor in 2000 and immediately gained a respect for the time and detail involved with large projects. Later he developed interest of the detailed intricacies of designing fine chain garments that flowed with the human form. In 2003 the first of his chain dresses was made. The passion for working with fashionable metals has never cooled. Starting with the usual beginnings of small local craft fairs and now in some of the largest convention scenes on the south east. Based in North Carolina, the Chained Elegance name has gained recognition on the eastern US coast and is growing. Despite that growth, it is never forgotten that it is a personal touch that means the most when it comes to quality. Always remember we are never too busy to work with you on custom projects.
