Okay…I talked about trying new things a couple of posts ago and I have just listed my first attempts at Chainmaille in my Etsy shop! It really is a simple attempt but I love the outcome and hope to continue on with some more complicated patterns. I choose to start slow because I don’t want to jump in and just get frustrated…I’ve learned that the hard way!
I hope everyone likes what I have done so far…

I have spent a lot of time admiring techniques that I’ve never used before. I love wirework and chainmaille both of which I have never really tried. I have a wigjig and plenty of jumprings that I can play with…one is finally conquered!
Yesterday I decided to try a basic Chainmaille pattern and am very happy with the results! I made two simple bracelets and added some bling to them. I will be making a few more creations, including some earrings which I need desperately in my shop! I’m very excited about how they’ve turned out and hope to post them in my shop next week. I’m looking forward to sharing my first attempts with everyone!
