I met the fabulous Chainmaille Lady, Lauren Andersen, last week! What a wonderful experience! Lauren was in Cleveland to tape a couple of segments for the PBS show "Beads, Baubles & Jewels" the same day I was there.
I had a great time getting to know her and seeing her gorgeous work in person, including this amazing piece that I remembered from the fall cover of "Step by Step Wire Jewelry"!!
Wow, isn't that bracelet amazing!?
I have to admit I was having a Wayne's World moment and had to fight the urge to bow down with a few verses of "I'm not worthy"!! :)
Lauren is a Beadalon designer, Swarovski Ambassador and jewelry making book author. You can find her at all the big shows conducting demonstrations of chainmaille designs. She also sells a variety of chainmaille items on her artfire site.
Take a look at this red bracelet, oh my gosh, this looks so complicated, but seeing how it was done in person made me feel a little less intimidated by it!
Lauren was so much fun to hang out and laugh with! I'm so glad to have had this experience! You can catch up with all her comings and goings on her facebook page.
Have a great weekend everyone! :)
