Marilyn Gardiner is a teacher, a jewellery designer, and a creator of jewellery kits. She published her first book: Modern Chain Mail Jewellery in 2015, and she will be selling and autographing her newest book, Fabulous Chain Mail Jewellery, 2018, at the show.
Her kits are known for their easy-to-follow, and clearly illustrated instructions. She also sells the jump rings, tools, beads and findings that she uses to make her own jewellery.
In addition to teaching classes in Canada and the U.S., she sells her kits and other products through her online store.
Her husband, Brad, is an active part of the company—he makes the jump rings and assembles the kits. The saw-cut and polished jump rings are available in several different metals.
