Hello World

Hey! In the chainmailling world I go by Gwenhyver, and I've been chainmailling for about.. 2 months now.

So, where do I get off having a blog about chainmailling as such a greenhorn?

I've been crafty for as long as I can remember, and for years have been doing geeky things with cross stitch. One fateful day a friend of mine showed me a sheet of chainmaille in black with a red dragon inlay, and this sparked my interest into chainmailling.

So why the blog?

I'm weird. Strange even! Visiting my etsy store Chained to the Strange you can see what I mean. I do some of the standard, gourgous, chainmaille accessoris, but I also do things that you won't find anywhere else! Trust me, you're going to want to keep track of some of the things I come up with! I'm always willing to share my ideas, so if you ever want a tutorial for something I've done just ask!

Love, love, love it! I am just beginning to use jump rings, not sure I'd call it actual chainmaille, I'm approaching it slowly. I do, however, call myself a tad strange sometimes. I like conservative, but I totally get and love anything off-kilter! You will love the blogging/beading/crafting community and won't regret it. Take care, Lisa C., www.abeadaday.blogspot.com
