Links Ahoy Matey!


I had a fun time dressing up as a pirate for the day at Rust Belt Market yesterday!  I thought a pirate would suit the theme of the huge tentacle monster looming above my booth, so I borrowed most of the outfit from Alex's ample costume closet.
I have sold quite a few of these skull pendants this season, which people seemed to like to make into Story Necklaces like the Skully Story Necklace below, which I listed in my Etsy Galleria.
That's the news from my studio this weekend... check out what some of my beady friends are doing:
