Welcome LasuzCreations

Today, we welcome LasuzCreations to our guild. Let's see how they answered some questions about Chainmaille.

How long have you been doing Chainmaille? About 4 years
Why do you like Chainmaille?  The designs look so intricate and unique.

What is your favorite type of ring? 20g sterling silver 7/64, perfect for making dainty bracelets and earrings.
What type of items do you prefer to make? Bracelets and earrings

Which weave would you like to learn that you don't currently know? Captive inverted roundmaille

Which piece are you most proud of? A sterling silver graduated Byzantine necklace commissioned by a friend.  That was one heavy necklace.

What advice would you give someone who is considering doing Chainmaille?  You have to have a lot of patience to learn some of the weaves, especially since there are both imperial measurements (ie. 7/64) and metric depending on which tutorial you're following.  That can be a bit of a headache trying to determine which rings you need if your rings aren't in the same style.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. You can check out daisykreates Artfire shop by following the link:
