Wire artist update: Vanessa Walilko

We met Vanessa Walilko, who runs Kali Butterfly last year, and so I asked her if there were anything new wire projects in her life.  Oh yes, there certainly are!


The biggest news is that I recently created a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for my most epic chainmaille project, a chainmaille wedding dress.  The Kickstarter campaign was fully funded (and then some).  You can read all about it here on the Kali Butterfly blog.

I'll have to link together 100,000 rings together to complete it.  :)  In other news, my chainmaille flapper dress was chosen as a finalist in the Bead Dreams competition.

Also, I'll be teaching at Bead&Button again.  Here are the links to all both classes:

Cyndi,

Have you seen the video of the Japanese pop star wearing Vanessa's jewelry and chain maille clothing? It's awesome!

Thanks for profiling one of my favorite people/artists again. :)
