Today, we welcome Wire and Chains to our guild. Let's see what she had to say to our questions. :)
How long have you been a chainmailler?
Why do you like chainmaille?
I find chainmaille fascinating to look at. I love that it is an ancient art form/armor.
What is your favorite type of ring?
I prefer bright aluminum.
What type of items do you prefer to make?
I enjoy making all types of jewelry. Ie bracelets, earrings, necklaces and pendants, anklets and rings.
Which weave would you like to learn that you don't currently know?
Which piece are you most proud of?
I have a bracelet that I wear all the time it is a 4 in 1 band with an attached flat blue matrix bead.
What advice would you give someone who was considering doing chainmaille?
Be patient, in the beginning it seems to take forever to complete a project. You do get considerably faster once you learn the weave and learning new weaves gets easier too. Patients is the key!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions, and good luck with learning Jens Pind! It is a very nice weave. You can check out Wire and Chains' Artfire shop by going to the rapid cart feature to the left or following the link: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/WireandChains
