Mythica metalworks

Inspired by myth, folklore, and ancient worlds
Shop Jewelry

Who are we?

Mythica Metalworks began with my love for both mythology and the traditional art of metalworking. I’ve spent over 10 years creating unique jewelry pieces and accessories that incorporate chainmaille and other historically-inspired techniques. Each piece is thoughtfully named to tell an ancient legend or story from around the world, and my hope is that they’ll travel with you as you create your own life’s narrative.     

Molly Whitaker

Founder & Artist

  • A huge thank you to everyone who visited us at @renaissancepleasurefaire over the weekend, it was our best weekend EVER here! It was so busy I didn’t get any new photos, so I thought I’d do a throwback comparison. From humble beginnings on two tables in a shared booth in 2015 to where I am today, I’m so thankful for all the incredible support and encouragement I’ve received from you all over the years. I couldn’t do this without you!

  • Hi all! I don’t often share non-business content here, but I’m dealing with a tough situation that is impacting my work and I could use some extra support. Due to a leak coming from a water pipe in the yard of my rental, my work space (and living room) have been water damaged to the point where I’m unable to access them for at least a week, likely longer. They’re currently using industrial fans and dehumidifiers 24/7 for 7 days to try and dry the foundation and carpets before any repairs and mold removal can begin. I’ve set up a desk in my laundry room, but it’s not easy to transfer many of my tools and equipment into a tiny space. I am losing my ability to work efficiently during a critical time of year when I build stock for upcoming events. I have plenty of jewelry and cut-to-order chains available for sale RIGHT NOW in my Etsy shop (link in bio)! If you’ve been thinking about buying now would be a great time to show your support. If you’ve seen something at an event you don’t see online, message me! I have more stock (especially precious metals and gemstones) that is not yet photographed. I can also take custom orders for scalemaille tops and pauldrons, and most of my jewelry designs. Thank you for reading this and helping to keep my little business afloat. 🙏

  • All Naga Necklaces are up on Etsy! Shop link in bio, or through our website to make sure more of your money goes directly to the artist. Here’s a sneak peek 👀 of upcoming matching bracelets! This new thinner style will be the Ryu Bracelet, and we’ll still have the double row Ouroboros Bracelets as well but with a price bump due to the new higher quality scales. I have a small handful of the old scale bracelets in stock at the old prices, grab them while you can in my shop!
