New in the Shop: Earrings!

I’ve been making earrings out of fishing lures for years. My favorites are the Acme Phoebe fish because they have a great shape and come in two different sizes. Whenever I spot them on sale, I grab them to make earrings. I put them away in a little tackle organizer and say, “Someday, I’ll add these to the shop.” I haven’t yet because I’ve always wanted my focus to be bags. But since adding coasters two years ago and sweater pins last yes, I thought maybe it was time to give earrings a go.

I specifically ordered stainless steel earring hooks because I want them to be more appealing to more people. My ears are happy with them so I know other people with sensitive ears will be happy with them, too.

I also made stud earrings with wooden cat buttons, at the request of my friend. I have no idea what the posts are made out of, so I only made a few. I have my own pair that I’ve been wearing around to test and they don’t bother my ears. But if I think I’m going to add more to the shop, I will definitely take the time to ensure that the posts I’m using are hypoallergenic.

They can currently be found in the Accessories Section with the sweater pins!

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.
