John  Fetvedt

John, who retired from IBM in 2005, was introduced to chain making in 2003 at William Holland, and has since done extensive research on weave patterns. Johns chain weaves have been published in Lark and Kalmbach books, and numerous other projects have been published by Art Jewelry and Wirework magazines. John began working with electro-etching in 2010 with the goal of eliminating the caustic mordants normally used for etching metals and simplifying the electro-etching process to make etching safer for the home studio.
