New items

As some of you have already noticed, we have added a few new products.  20g 1/8″ enameled copper rings are becoming available as we get them cut.  Only a couple of colors are up in the store as of right now, but we do have a few more colors ready.  They should be listed by Sunday.  We will also be listing 20g 5/32″ in a few colors at the same time.

We will also be listing a new anodized aluminum size.  18g, 5/32″ should be listed on Sunday as well.

Due to many requests we have brought in 20g half round copper and red brass wire for our wire wrapping friends.  We hope to have these listed for you on Sunday as well.

18g half round copper and red brass should be available next week.  We plan on making some jump rings out of this wire, though rings are probably a couple weeks away.

New storage bags and anti tarnish tabs have been added, and a few items that were out of stock, including tool magic, are now available again.

We do have more bright aluminum sizes cut, but we need to get actual measurements before I list them.  They should be available by next week.

In other news, we have agreed to help out a fellow local (fe)mailler, and student at her first show in a couple of weeks.  I will post exact times of the show in another post Monday.

Until then, remember, It’s in the Maille!

Pendant Swap

In addition to our website here, we also sell on Artfire.  Recently there was a pendant swap that was organized by cctexan that we participated in.  Basically a bunch or artists sent her pendants, she swapped them around and sent the pendants back out.  For every one you sent in, you got one back.  We received our pendants today, and I have to say there is some great work here.  Here is what we got.

From Rocky Creek Gems

White marble cabochon with seed beads

A wonderful piece that obviously has a lot of time involved in it.  That’s a lot of beads!

From Trinkets & Treasures

Silver art clay leaf pendant with stone

I love the stone that is in this.  I don’t know what it is, but it is a beautiful shade of dark blue.  One day I will get to play with art clay.

From Jewelry by Joy

Purple crazy lace agate wrapped with copper

The purple in this stone is wonderful, and the lines just really pop.  Good thing I got some new copper wire in today so I can make a matching chain.

Now I just have to figure out how to use these in one of our designs.

We’d like to thank cctexan for putting this together, and all the wonderful artists who participated and made this a great experience.

If you are looking for a wonderful handmade pendant, I highly suggest you take a look at these wonderful artists.

11th Annual Pine Creek Holiday Bazaar

Just a reminder, next Saturday, November 8th, we will be at the 11th annual Pine Creek Holiday Bazaar.  The Bazaar runs from 9 am to 4 pm, and is a wonderful place to do some holiday shopping.   Featuring over 120 vendors and some good food, a good time is had by all.

We will be unveiling a few new designs at the show that won’t be available on our site until after the new year, so stop by and see us.  Mention you saw this post and we will give you 10% off any purchase!

In the news

So this is a little overdue, but earlier this summer we were vendors at a charity car show.  The local newspaper was out covering it and the reporter couldn’t stop touching some of our designs.  She ended up getting a picture of us and putting it in the paper.  Picture was taken from the online version.

Rock Ledge Ranch

Just a little over a week until our big show at Rock Ledge Ranch and I am starting to stress out.  For those that don’t know, this is a HUGE show that attracts tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people.  We’ve done many shows, but this will be our biggest by far.  I still have a list a mile long of items I need to make, and a list almost as long of “support” type stuff that needs to be done.

Even if you have seen us before at a show, stop by and visit.  We will have a complete new look.  We have a new tent, new displays, a new banner sign and lots of new and exciting designs.

If you want to come out and see us, but don’t know where, have a look at the flyer we have up here for more information.

Remember, It’s in the Maille!
