Tied in Chains is unique, handmade and custom-designed jewelry featuring various sizes and styles of chain, silk and cotton threadwork, leather cord, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, pearls, gold beads, and other mixed media. All pieces are hand-made by Lauren Mullaney in NYC and CT. Many are one of a kind colorways or unique designs to develop multilayer pieces with variations in depth and texture.
I started making jewelry in high school, and while it remained a favorite hobby for me for many years (decades actually), I didn’t turn it into a full-time career until 2014. Now I am using knowledge from silversmithing, knitting & weaving, and painting to mix various metals, fabrics, and textures together to create what I think is a unique line of jewelry.
