Carmen McLellan's Profile
I have been crafting most of my life, with yarn, embroidery, sewing, painting and dabbling in any number of crafts and activities. I discovered jewelry making 15 years ago, and have been selling my work for 10. Chainmaille is my first love in jewelry working, after learning from my best friend when she was involved in a medieval revival group. With just two pairs of pliers and a few thousand wire rings, I can make something truly gorgeous and special. And yes, I am just crazy enough to enjoy spending hours linking these together in patterns.
I have two autistic children, so I am a very busy mom, but I spend every moment I can steal playing with links, wire and beads. I get inspiration everywhere, from whatever colours and textures catch my interest. I love hanging out with fellow beadaholics in my favourite bead shops, and am constantly trying out new techniques and ideas.
I like doing custom…
