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.
