I really like aluminum too. And that's awesome on selling your art, as well!!Hello, my name is Kathy. I AM a chainmaille addict. I have been an addict for a few years now. I started doing Maille as a diet plan. I figured if I had pliers in my hands, I couldn't have snacks in them. Lol well, it worked long enough to turn me into an addict. Unfortunately, the diet plan didn't pan out as well as I had hoped. I work mainly with aluminum, as I have arthritis in both hands. I have done some jewelry in stainless, but I can't do much at once. I just recently started selling my jewelry in an art gallery where it is doing relatively well. My biggest fear is that my arthritis robs me of my ability to continue with my addiction. I look forward to being a member and reaping the benefits of being so.
