• Custom requests
    In addition to keeping a variety of common items in stock, I also do custom pieces upon request. Recently I was approached by a lovely fire twirling lady who wanted me to make her part dragon. She chose the colours and let my imagination take care of the rest. The end result was a matching collar and garter in large orange and black aluminium scales. Images above provided by Workmanlike Images and used with permission from both photographer and model. Below is the collar (or mantle) in various stages of completion and fitting. The garter was thrown together on the day of the photo shoot, so there’s no progress photos of it.   The client was most impressed with the final piece, and that always makes me happy. Still hoping to receive a few more of the final photos from the shoot (I wasn’t able to be there for it, sadly).
  • Mother’s Day market stall
    Last week, the Social Club at work held a market day at which I was again lucky enough to obtain a table. Photos of the set ups went around today and I grabbed the ones of my stall. No idea who the photographer was, sadly.      
  • New jewellery
    Here’s some of the chainmail and other jewellery I’ve been working on, as well as a couple of octopi made from chainmail. My sister challenged me to make the first octopus (the copper coloured one) and it worked out so well I made a stainless steel one as well. I’ve booked a table at a local market day, hoping to get enough stuff produced to actually sell things at it!
