Uli’s Creations are not what comes to mind for me when I think of chainmaille. Admittedly, my experience with this jewellery design technique is limited, but I’m thinking knights and jousting. Instead, we see that Uli’s chainmaille creations are delicate and often colourful!
Uli was another of the participants in our Canada Day giveaway, and even though I’ve held one of her bracelets myself, I’m not sure I’ve got it quite figured out how it all goes together so seamlessly.
Uli’s passion for chainmaille started when her daughter wanted to make some jewellery… plastic beads turned into “real” beads and eventually she tackled chainmaille, learning as she went. I’m intrigued by the number of tiny little rings involved in each piece, and the patience that it must take to put it all together. Obviously, colour is important to Uli, and my favourite pieces are definitely the ones that incorporate a bit of the rainbow!
My all-time favourite in her shop, though, is this one… I know black isn’t exactly colourful, but the organized chaos of this “shaggy” weave necklace suits my current state of mind. I guess that means I’m feeling a little shaggy?
