Centipede Bracelet - Fri, Sep 16 - The name may sound similar to Caterpillar Bracelet, but the weave is totally different! Adaptation of a Celtic chain maille design uses seed beads structually with large jump rings. Great for chain maille artists looking to add a new element. Pre-req Chain Maille. Was $55 - Now $45

BeadMaille Necklace - Sat, Sep 17 - Cindy's signature piece and the front cover of her book! For those who like the look of chain maille, but want a softer feel. The instructor's unique BeadMaille concept uses stitched seed beads, in combination with metal rings, to produce a hybrid of the 2 techs. Inspired by European chain maille, featuring layers of beads and rings that float inside each other. Pre-req RAW. Was $95 - Now $75

Wubber Chain Bracelet - Sat, Sep 17 - Discover the new Wubber Forming Pliers - designed with ease in mind. Quickly and reliably make wrapped loops, eye loops, and the adorable coil links that make up this bracelet. Practice forming and wrapping loops while accurately positioning the seams so they almost disappear. These are the smallest coil links I have ever seen - amazing! Was $50 - Now $45
