Instructor: Mary Soucy
Mary Soucy, of Bead Me A Story, creates unique chain maille items in mixed media from her Glen Burnie, Maryland studio in the suburbs of Baltimore. Originally a seed bead and polymer clay artist, she finds new ways to use beads, rings, rubber and metal in her chain maille items. As a chain maille supplier, it offers Mary the opportunity to experiment with a lot of different items to see if they can be worked into her chain maille designs. Mary creates everything from whimsical and colorful flowers from rubber and acrylic to elegant rhinestone creations. Basically, she is someone who has a hard time thinking inside the box. In addition to making jewelry and selling supplies, Mary enjoys teaching at bead stores for one day or weekend events. Her projects have been featured in special editions of Bead Stringing as well as Step by Step Wire magazine.

The skills acquired in this class will be useful in learning more advanced chain maille weaves. These projects incorporate square jump rings inside to make each chain have an inner sparkle and glow. There will also be more advanced projects available for you to try if you are experienced and ready to work with more challenging materials & sizes.
