How We Got Started

The Blacksmiths Wench is a Calgary based online business with a strong presence at Alberta markets and festivals. Louise Taylor started her career as an artisan in the early 90's selling crafts at small Calgary markets. Louise looking for a post oil boom career has re-educated with courses in Silver Smithing, jewelry design and repair, chain maille, and Blacksmithing. The Blacksmiths Wench on line store was created in 2015 with bead and chain maille jewelry lines. Since launch product lines have increased and matured. Browsing the site you will see a variety of fine silver and chain maille jewelry. Most recently Louise has created a very popular line of Body Chain, and Body Chain Maille jewelry.
