I have been interested in jewelry making for a very long time. In high school I enjoyed copper enameling, but went into a scientific direction in college. I started with beaded jewelry about 10 years ago. I have since started working with jump rings and learned chain maille weaves, as the patterns are called. I enjoy working with both copper and anodized aluminum. My copper is coated to maintain the shine. The aluminum is very lightweight and comes in a wide range of colors. For many pieces I add beads for additional sparkle and interest.

Customization: I have various colors of anodized aluminum jump rings and can make pieces to order with materials I have. I purchase my rings, and with any dyed lot, there may be variations from one batch to the next. Having been a beader for many years, I also have a wide selection for embellishments.
Ring colors are: red, orange, yellow, green, royal blue, purple, seafoam green, sky blue, pink, lavender, bronze, gold, silver, black, black ice (shiny grey), frost (matte white), champagne (midway between gold and silver).
