What are Chainies?

The term “Chainies” originated in Ireland during the “Great Depression” in the 1930’s. Children would find  fragments of pottery and glass to play a game of “Chainies”.

During the same period, people used Chainies to decorate the tops of graves by placing fragments in the shape of a cross - how beautiful!
