Detroit News Columnist, Jocelynn Brown, Features Gossamer Tangles

Finding your name in the newspaper is always exciting, but when it appears in a feature article and it focuses on something you are passionate about, it is  .... well, beyond exciting!  Today, in the Homestyle magazine section of the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press, craft columnist, Jocelynn Brown, wrote a feature about me and Gossamer Tangles.  You can read the article here

The article focused on a technique that I use in making some of my jewelry-- crocheting thread or fiber, sometimes with beads, into a metal chain.  Here are some examples:
Baroque and Brass Necklace


Light Among the Leaves Necklace

Glistening Rainbow Necklace

Golden Stripes Necklace and Bracelet

Basically, the technique involves treating the metal chain in the same manner as a base, crocheted yarn chain.  By using different fibers and different types of stitches, you can create many lovely combinations.
