About the Artist

Julia Lowther (Seattle) has been teaching jewelry making nationally and internationally for over a decade. Her current body of works, Armor that Caresses, focuses on reviving and expanding the ancient art of making chain maille. She loves the process of transforming stiff, unruly coils of wire into delightfully flexible and sensuous ribbons of metal. Julia’s work has been published most recently in the books Art Jewelry Today 2, Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet and Chain Mail Jewelry.
