Hugs & Kisses Bracelet With a Twist

Reveal day has arrived.  This is what I started in class on Saturday at Bead Fest in Santa Fe. 

I took a class with Sue Ripsch, an expert in chain mail.  Sue has published two books and has a successful business in jewelry making/design.  Her book is wonderfully illustrated and provides patterns for beautiful chain mail jewelry.  

If you have an opportunity to take a class with Sue I recommend that you DO.  She's a good teacher.  Her instructions are clear and she gives each participant one-on-one attention.  She fixed my blunders offering simple solutions w/a sense of humor.  Plus I was able to finish this up on my own thanks to Sue working with me to ensure that I understood the pattern.  

It was a pleasure meeting her and her husband, Steve.
