Introducing Isis Arts

It is time to introduce another of our newer members. This week's featured ArtFire Chainmaille Guild member is Linda Faigen aka Isis Arts. We asked Linda our regular questions, so let's see how she answered them.

How long have you been a Chainmailler? 2 years approximately

Why do you like Chainmaille? Because of its design possibilities and also because it's relaxing for me to work on. Sort of like knitting is for some people.

What is your favourite type of ring? I'm not sure what you mean by "type" of ring. If you mean which metal I prefer, that would be sterling silver

What kind of items do you prefer to make? Necklaces and bracelets

Which weave would you like to learn that you dont currently know? Jens Pind

Which piece are you most proud of? The piece shown here, which combines Helm, Spiral and Wire Wrapping.

What advice would you give to someone who was considering doing Chainmaille? Go for it!

Thanks Linda and welcome to the Guild. You can see more of Linda's amazing work at Isis Arts on ArtFire.
