The Making of the Bluebell Chainmaille Flower Bracelet

I know that some of you enjoy seeing the process that goes into making my jewelry. This is a not-really-tutorial that shows how I made the Bluebell Chainmaille Flower bracelet! It is inspired by the purple-blue "bluebell" flower, also known as harebells and fairy thimbles.

"When dim and dewy twilight falls, 
Then comes the time 
When harebells chime 
For fairy feasts and, fairy balls. 
They tinkle while the fairies play, 
With dance and song, 
The whole night long, 
Till daybreak wakens, cold and grey, 
And elfin music fades away."
~Cicley Mary Baker, artist of the flower fairy paintings

Also, as of this month my Artfire shop is officially closed. I am now selling only on my Etsy store, Shealynn's Faerie-- please check it out as I am adding more items! 

 Next week is Thanksgiving, and with it comes Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Stay tuned for some flash sales!

One last announcement: My queue for custom orders is nearly full, so if you have anything custom that you would like me to make for Christmas, please email me straight away. Thank you!

Queens and Princesses

Handmade jewelry, homemade gowns, and legitimate swords and staffs can turn ordinary party-goers into Elvish queens and princesses. This is precisely what happened with my beautiful cousins and aunts during our latest get-together! You might remember that I shared hilarious pictures of outtakes from this photoshoot in the post We're All Mad Here. Now, I am thrilled to share the pictures that turned out well!

I think that I will let the photos speak for themselves, and I hope that you enjoy our craziness! Doing photoshoots like these are so much fun. :)
