I think I need to stop starting new projects. But when I saw these I couldn't help myself. Purple is one of my all time favorite colors so I love how this turned out. I think that would make great wedding centerpieces. I want to get married now just to use them. :)

Here it is!

Here is the finished Dragonscale piece. This is a bracelet that I made, but I will be doing more with this weave eventually.

Isn't it beautiful. Notice the double layers of rings, facing opposite directions, it created a neat scale type pattern. Already sold off my Etsy site, but it will be relisted.

Dragonscale Coming Soon

There are literally endless chainmaille weaves and variants of weaves and I love when I get one down well enough that I feel proud to have it for sale. So with my practice lately there will be a new weave design coming soon to my selection in my Etsy shop. I did not create Dragonscale, but its a gorgeous weave and its bound to please.

So keep an eye out.

Spring has Sprung

New Anklet Bracelets listed. Since the weather is getting warmer I figured that people might want to start showing off those gorgeous legs of theirs, and what better to adorn them than a chainmaille anklet.

I did a small little indoor flea market in Anoka, and didn't do half bad. I had more fun than anything. I love talking to people about what I do. I should have a few people emailing me about chainmaille and how I do things and where I get supplies that stuff. I love being able to pass it on. So my second show under my belt and I think I'm ready to go bigger now. I'm so excited.

I'm getting my apartment all cleaned up and organized so I can have more space to keep all my craft show stuff together and organized too. Making up a huge inventory will be the next priority next, along with coming up with more designs.

To anyone visiting here after seeing me in Anoka, thanks so much!

Talk about some self motivation. I'm kicking my butt into gear here. Ive picked out a new color scheme for web design and I will be making my Etsy site, future website and my craft show display all very cohesive. I'm in the process of tracking down someone to help me design the new logo that I have in my head too. I'm dedicated to make my maille a success and I'm going to start getting my butt out there. So there will be a lot of new designs and pictures coming soon.

Here is my second chainmaille covered candle holder design. I'm loving this one tons too.

Aluminum half persian 3 in 1 weave "collar" draped with a simple 1 in 1 chain and accented with spider charms. The candle holder is 11" around at its widest in the middle, the opening is 2.25" in diameter, and 5" tall.
