Say Hello and introduce yourself

I'm getting comments from hubby that several people have seen this site and like what they see, It would be great if you could take a minute and comment, let me know your favorite piece, what you would like to see more of etc.

My first public show is 3/28 in Eagan MN.

More Maille

I have added another slide show with all of my current maille patterns. Currently the gold colored ones are made of Jewelers Brass which is much different alloy than other brass items you may be familiar with, the silver tone pieces are currently Bright aluminum again a much different alloy than usual aluminum. Aluminum brings with it a light feel, people either really enjoy the feel of aluminum or not. This type of metal is very strong for its weight and made specifically for the jewelery trade.

I will be creating pieces in sterling in the next week and as always will be happy to take special orders on: gold plated, bronze, copper, sterling, aluminum, as well as niobium, argentium silver (a more tarnish resistant sterling) and gold and the colored coppers & aluminum.
