Dan Winterhalter, founder of Phoenix Chainmaille, is an artist, inventor, engineer, gamer, and teacher.  Continuing to create maille whenever his hands find a few free minutes, he loves creating new and different pieces, rarely sitting down long enough to create an inventory of repeated things to sell.

Excited to teach others and share his passion, Dan has become a teacher on Dabble, leading a monthly chainmaille 101 class in the Denver area, and hoping soon to offer several advanced courses.
