These are the tools I use in the creation of Chainmaille, two pairs of pliers, and three mandrels. Of course I have more, these are all that would fit on the background area. Mandrels are used to wrap the wire to create a coil, from which jump rings are cut. Pliers are used to open and close the jump rings during the linking process.
We now have a tumblr blog (because it was required for something else). Unfamiliar with the set up and not exactly comfortable with the user control panel or Dashboard, there is little content. However if you like tumblr or have a blog, give a follow over there. The Alchemists Vessel on tumblr. I intend to keep content different or as separate as possible, to keep things fresh on both Blogs.
Thank you all for stopping and having a look! The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant and joyous weekend!
She was greatly respected, admired, appreciated and loved by those who worked with her and got to enjoy her company during those Market weekends. The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish her all the best in her great new adventures! She will be greatly missed.

Currently I am working on several things, however I have been talking about learning a new weave, the Full Persian. Much like the Box or Inca Puno Weave, as well as the Byzantine weave, the jump rings are grouped together, flipped, turned, and closed to create units, each unit forms a link, the links then form a chain.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look. In hope that discouragement is not the main theme of this post. The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant week.
Photography. Its one of those “catch” words for me. I love it, every single aspect of it, especially vintage type stuff. Capturing images that convey emotion, any emotion, is my goal. I love shooting people (photographically, of course…although I do admit to some feelings of love for shooting people with Nerf guns at times) and capturing subtle nuances of emotion in a contrasting background, with a vintage flair.
I’m Stacey, and Im a City chick, through and through. I’ve lived and traveled extensively in Europe and California, but I always come back to the Bay. I shoot musicians, bands, and people but specialize in vintage portraits – ’40s Hollywood glamour, ’60s mod, ’70s hippie chick – I love it all.
I’m also working with a few film production companies as a director/dir. of photography and am finding that quite rewarding. I’m opening a new studio March 1 in Oakland where I will be not only creating more vintage portraits with great props, but will be working with some of the best stylists and musicians the Bay has to offer. Exciting things happening in 2012!

This is one of my personal favorites of Stacey’s shots. It evokes emotion at a glance, subtle tones of black and white capture the lone, gnarled, and stately tree in a California park. Simply stunning!
customers to be as happy and pleased with the pieces they purchase as I am in creating them. Each piece is handcrafted with meticulous care and attention to detail. I like to put a sense varying design styles, fun and excitement, whimsy and femininity to the jewelry creations.
I have been in business since 2005, and began in Zodiac niche jewelry. Quickly aware that I needed to offer more, I began researching and studying techniques, gemstones, and metals on my own. The inventory has grown, selections are more varied and I enjoy the design aspect. Working with a variety of materials helps to keep things fresh. I taught myself to make Chain Maille last year, and have become adept at several patterns.
Thank your for bearing with me. I hope you enjoyed this brief and not very informative peak into the artisan and Alchemist, Alixandra Browning
