Cold-Blooded Maille! Check it out!

My friend (and partner in craft-fair crime) Peter has started listing jewelry in his etsy shop! This is really exciting for a couple of reasons.

1) Peter is an amazing artist and
2) now I can direct you to his work!

Because before I would be all, “Peter and I did a craft fair.”

But now I can be all, “Peter and I did a craft fair,” and I can hyperlink the shit out of  his name. Then you can click on it and see what you didn’t get to see at the craft fair you didn’t visit us at. OH WORD!

Check this bracelet out:

He opens and closes every single link to make sure that they are closed properly and closed tightly. He doesn’t want his work pulling apart and obviously neither do you.

This one is made with rubber rings, which makes it stretchy:

I have one like this and it’s great because I can get it on and off one handed (I struggle with clasps if I can’t use both hands, aha). Also, it’s neat and not very many people have one like it. And I LOVE having something that not everybody else has.

And he recently started making hacky sacks:

Awesome, right?!

I’m not saying you should go check out Cold-Blooded Maille. I’m just saying that you should go check out Cold-Blooded Maille. Because even if you aren’t into chain-maille jewelry, you have to admit it’s pretty awesome.


SAE Holiday Fair

Today, Peter and I did a fair at the Station Ave Elementary School in Yarmouth. He was plugging for a table at a high school because he thinks we’ll do better but I thought it was a  pretty good one. The school band played for a little while and then the chorus sang Christmas songs, and a few vendors / visitors recognized us from the Orleans show!

We had an especially small table today because someone (me) bought a new folding table and didn’t look at the size before loading it into her car and driving around with it for a week. So instead of our normal 8 ft table we had a 6 ft table. Oops. I was going to trade it in but then I thought we could get a 4 ft one and make an L with them, giving us a little more room in the future. Or an arm rest!

Here’s our little spot in the gym:

It was right near the entrance which is good and not-so-good. Good because people see us almost first! Not-so-good people people don’t always want to buy things right away. They want to look around, make a list in their head, and buy after. But by the time they hit the end they forget about us or already found other things to get instead.

This is Peter’s display:

And some close ups!

Peter has patience I couldn’t even dream of, opening and closing all those little rings to create such beautiful chain mail jewelry (and bikini tops)!

We’re looking for a show to do on December 15th so if you hear of anything in the Cape Cod area, please let me know!
