Lastest (and last!) Newsletter Published

In the midst of our Bead&Button show, we posted the latest Newsletter to the website. You’ll notice that the newsletter format will be changing after this issue. We’ve had the same format for about 4 years, and, well, we’re itching to deliver information, coupons and updates to you in different ways. We’re pretty sure that you’ll like these changes, but we always like to check in with you as we make changes, so feel free to leave a comment here to let us know what you think.

This edition contains project ideas for size T14 (14ga 3/8″) — mongo-size maille! We’ve also included a quick finger ring project, color palette ideas and a listing of some upcoming classes and products.

I love your site and the information I received. I’m planning a Buzantine bracelet to sell that requires 120 6 mm F17 rings plus 3-5 art glass beads and 2 art glass spacers, silver spacers and a slide 2 strand clasp. I want to use sterling rings. I’m debating on replacing the beads with more rings but don’t know if the bracelet would be more desirable. Certainly both would be nice. Is it possible to receive some help with either a discount or a coupon as I’m retired and the cost of silver continues to rise. I’m just beginning with chainmail and find it intriguing and will continue to place orders as I’ve found an outlet for my work in AZ.

Hi Charlotte! Sorry for the delay in response (our blog buried your comment a bit!) We know all too well the woes of sterling prices over the last year or so – it seems every time we turn around, the prices have gone up. While we don’t really have a financial aid program in place right now, we do occasionally offer coupons that could help ease the pain. We usually offer the best coupons to our mailing list subscribers, so we highly recommend you join the list and keep your eyes peeled for those. You can find a link to sign up here:

If silver proves too expensive, you could try a silver colored metal like niobium, aluminum or stainless steel in its place. To learn more about these metals, you can visit out FAQ: Other than that, we want to give you a big congrats on finding an outlet for your new found craft – that’s so great! We wish you lots of continued luck in that area :)

Happy Weaving!

My son and I are just getting started and would love some coupons for our future orders. We love your site and the book Chained we checked out at our library.
