Craftscene Spotlight: Chris Bettini-Handmade Chainmaille jewelry

Chris started creating jewelry in 2004 when her boyfriend, Ted, introduced her to the art of Chainmaille. They had stopped by a little shop in Helen, GA that sold Chainmaille Armor. Ted made a comment about wanting a chainmaille bracelet, so upon returning home,  Chris set out on a journey to find everything she'd need to make one. From that moment on, she was hooked, and it's been non-stop ever since.

  Chris creates chainmaille in Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, Gold Filled, Rose Gold Filled, Brass and Stainless Steel and designs some jewelry using Semi Precious Stones and hand crafted Polymer Clay or Lampwork beads.

You can find Chris's beautiful and intricate creations at the Funfourth Street Festival on Saturday July 3rd and also on Handmade Triad.
