Maybe it is time to stop lurking

Hey, just thought it was about time to stop lurking.

I have been doing maille for about a year now, mostly jewelery, but also some bigger projects. I have been interested in it for a long time but it took a work shop at a con to get me into it. Now there always is rings and pliers in my bag. In about two months time I'll do a new experiment which is a table at a con together with another couple of friends of mine who both also do maille. I am playing around with figuring out what might sell and what might not. My main reason for this is that I love making this stuff, learning new weaves and experimenting, but there is only so much jewelery a girl can have or push on her friends and rings are not exactly free (though I have discovered that hardware stores are amazing). And I love seing people wear stuff I make. To make this even more fun and related to this community, the con is ConBust 08 at Smith College, it is a con that focuses on women in gaming and scifi and fantasy.
 Let's see what else, hmm, I am 20, European, a fire juggler, a LARPer (that is how I got interested in chainmaille) and a scifi geek.
