I thought it was so cool that I had to learn how to do it so I did, and now I'm addicted! My goal is to master as many weaves as I can but also invent one of my own. I love working with the different metals and using beads as well with the chainmaille.

***If you see a style of jewelry you like but want it a different length, color, or material I will custom make one to your specifications.
