Hi, my name is Ólafur Ingi and i live in Keflavik, Iceland.
I was a commercial fisherman for about 19 years, went to Vancouver Film School for 2 years, went back to sea and a year later I quit.
From 2008 I’ve been doing a lot of crafting, drawing, painting, sculpting clay, woodcarving, carpentry and a few other things I’ve forgotten about. In 2009 I started making bracelets and necklaces from leather which I sold at a viking festival in Hafnarfjörður, there I saw a lot of byzantine necklaces and chainmail, I liked the look and around 2015 I started experimenting with chainmail.
All the jewelry I make are handmade and I stand by the quality of my work.
So far I’ve made the most common weaves European 4 in 1, Byzantine, Half Persian 4 in 1, Full Persian, Barrel weave and some other.
I hope to add to my knowledge of weaves and enjoy this craft for a long time.
