***A Message From the Artist***
Necklaces are where I started my journey into the world of the various Weaves used in chain maille. It is the near infinite variation on pattern and function offered that keeps me totally fascinated and constantly creating, innovating, and exploring. The first 'Jewelry' pattern I ever learned is Spiral, and it is both my favorite pattern to wear and my favorite to create. To date, in 2023, I know and use about 40+ patterns in total. Some are simple variations, some are suitable for chains and some are not. I still try to learn (or create) at least one new pattern every year. If you have any ideas for fun ways to mix and match, please pass them along!
