Chainmaille Jewelry, Great Food and Awesome Friends...
My friend Sara invited a few of us over to her place for a wonderful homemade dinner of stir fry (which yes I tried, ate and liked) and then taught us how to make Chainmaille jewelry. It was so much fun we created past midnight. She taught me how to make a Byzantine bracelet and a Captive bracelet with pearls. I've gotten so many compliments from people and a client wanted me to make some for her moms. :) To hard to explain how to make them but boy it does take patience and it does hurt the wrist after a while, but these were the beginner levels and it was doable. Sara is making a beautiful necklace for a wedding gift for a friend and it is very intricate and time consuming. She's spent probably 16 hours on it so far. It's soooo beautiful!
