About me & my Shop


About tony

 I was born in Iowa and grew up in Idaho. I’ve been living the desert life for the last ??years; first in Southern Utah and then Palm Springs where I’ve been the past ? years. Supporting myself since the age of 16, I've always been a hard worker. 

The travel industry has always intrigued me and after dabbling in hotel and airline reservation centers along with being a travel agent, I knew I needed to fly and that’s exactly what I’ve done, working as a flight attendant for almost twenty years. 


About chain male

 While shopping at a leather shop, my husband and I found a very interesting jockstrap made of stainless steel rings. Unfortunately it didn't fit, so I Googled it. What I found really intrigued me and I got the wild idea of trying to design and make my own jewelry and fetish wear. I am a very creative person and I'm always looking for new ideas,things that excite me and hold my attention. Along with designing and making my jewelry, I am selftaught in many areas including knitting, crochet, Microsoft office and web design.

The jockstrap that we found was made from Chainmaille (also known as chainmail, or simply maille) and is typically armor or jewelry made by connecting metal rings to one another. The word maille derives from the French word maille (mesh), which comes from Latin macula (mesh of a net). ... 
So I dug in and learned chainmaille and created Chain Male, designing jewelry and fetish wear for gay men. Interestingly enough, many of my customers are women buying things for their straight boyfriends or husbands.
