Perhaps you are looking for a new design (or three) and are interested in something that’s Fresh and NEW? Then Lauren’s NEW Chain Maille Embellishment Kit in either gold tone or in Silver Tone is the perfect solution, as each kit sold comes with a Free Exclusive Designer Pattern by Lauren, and all you add are your favorite beads. Perfect!
Tip: you might want to follow the links above and order your new kits in advance, that way you can be sure to get yours before they sell out AND then you can relax and enjoy the rest of the goodies in the show!
Of course, having all of the correct supplies, the right tools and a book or two is great, but there is nothing like taking a class with Lauren Andersen in person! Read more in my “Cougarism” below.

"Cougarism"— featuring Lauren AndersenLauren Andersen is an amazing designer, artist, author and instructor! Born & raised in beautiful southern California. She was blessed with having an extremely talented & crafty mom. Her father was an equally talented Civil Engineer. She has a degree in Accounting, Paralegal Studies, & Pharmacy Technician, but loves learning and evolving. Most of her career was spent being “serious”. Now is the fun part of her life! She loves taking a raw material, like wire, and turning it into a gorgeous new creation. She also loves to bead, macramé, and do various forms of needlepoint. She is inspired by people and nature. She loves the simplicity and the complexity of nature. She also loves to see people's faces when she explains how her chainmaille is created. They always have wonderful suggestions for new creations! And of course her family always inspires and supports her.
We are so honored that Lauren has agreed to teach a 3-Day Progressive Workshop at the JSI titled, “Chain Maille 101: the Basics“. Imagine being one of Lauren’s students! She describes her course:
“Day 1: We will begin by learning a very simple yet gorgeous chainmaille bracelet called 'Spine of the Centipede' and in the afternoon we will make another bracelet using the barrel weave technique.
Day 2: We will expand on what you have learned in day one by adding another chainmaille weave to your repertoire.
Day 3: We will make a beautiful pair of crystal earrings and discuss how to price your work for sale, venues, booth décor, and a brief discussion on copyright issues.”
