Company Name: ChainWeavers.com

List specific tools you feel you are an “expert” with:
All pliers used for chainmaille, from tiniest needlenose to heavy duty parallel-jaw pliers for heavy gauge wire.

Occupation: Co-owner/designer for ChainWeavers

Location: Hayden, Idaho

Favorite type of jewelry to make: chainmaille

I would like to learn more about (jewelry making skill): soldering, PMC

My favorite material to work with: sterling silver

I get my inspiration from: old, established patterns and weaves that can be ‘jump-started’ to something brand new

My favorite blogs and websites: no time to peruse anything but our own FB page

My favorite Tronex tool: Needlenose pliers

I love this tool because: I do a lot of micromaille, especially 22 and 24 gauge wire. The tips of these pliers makes it very easy to get great closures.

Things I like to do besides jewelry making: Read, cook, play with my Jack Russell terrier, Willa

Other things you should know about me: I’m a wildlife watcher – I live in the woods and LOVE seeing the animals that visit our property, such as moose, elk, whitetail deer, black bears, mountain lions, red fox, coyotes and lots of birdlife.
