Q&A with Claudia Chase

Mizzy Boyle asked:
Claudia, What do you use for the cuff base and where do you get them? I really love these!!! Mizzy
Claudia Chase answered:
Hey Mizzy: I use a brass cuff. You can actually get them on my site: www.mirrixlooms.com or you could come pick them up here! And I dye the silk for the weaving part. Fun to make. Featured in current issue of Beadwork.
