Chain Gang

It's no secret that I love working with chain. Sometimes just the ease of it, the quickness something comes together using linked chain- dictates what I make. Chain can be the deciding factor in a design- occasionally I find myself creating around the chain rather than the beads/components. 



Even if a section of chain isn't long enough for the initial design thought, it can be used anyway, and the thought transforms from symmetrical to asymmetrical!



Nothing is easier than a charm necklace!


Doubled up brass flat link chain- forms the perfect lariat with large lampwork glass rounds and brass charms. To keep the 2 chain sections together, I opened a brass jump ring and linked the two chains together, at the center.

    I just want to write and say how much I admire your style and ability to put together beautiful pieces. I absolutely love the book and am always looking at it for the techniqueses used in the book. I've begun to try and think of uniques ways to use different elements. You and Erin have sparked my imagination. I am now trying to incorporate the techniques i've learned into my own jewelry. I also just ordered some of the waxed linen in your new shop.

    Thanks for the inspiration!!!!!
