Chainmaille class

I taught a chainmaille class at Blue Fire Beads today.  It was the first chainmaille I’d taught except as a one on one just to a friend.  We had a blast.  It was a great group.  They did really well and it was just all round fun. 

I’m really glad that I can still teach something.  I loved my job as a nurse educator for the ICU and miss the teaching part of it a lot.  You all know how I like to talk.  LOL  I was even thinking of doing kits for different weaves with a DVD of how to do the weave.  I doubt–know–that I don’t have the skill to do that but it sure would be fun to do. 

Everyone was very intense.  🙂

Chainmaille and glass

I love chainmaille and I love glass.  I made the bead with silver foil–one of my favorites.  I was so pleased with it that I made the Byzantine chainmaille to go with it.  It’s for sale on etsy but I kind of hope it doesn’t sell.  I love to wear it so much.  But…I need the money too.  What to do…what to do.
