Etsy Feature Friday

Surprise!

As I now have my own Etsy shop and I know how well this segment of the blog has worked for me in the past, I thought I would reincarnate this much beloved past feature. Set your calendars! Every Friday I will be featuring items from five fellow Etsy shops, based on a weekly theme. As my very first sale last week went to a local buyer, I thought it would only be right to feature local artists this week! Enjoy.

1. Byzantine Chainmaille Bracelet by BridgeCityMaille - $38.72CAD


Description from site (note: this is a partial description; for more information visit the listing page linked above!)

The Byzantine weave is by far one of the most beautiful patterns created using the art of chainmaille. The bracelet above is made using saw cut Anodized Aluminum rings made out of square wire. The resulting rings look like washers. Much like the facets of a gemstone, the flat sides of the rings shimmer and reflect more light than their round counterparts. The clasp used for this bracelet is made of solid stainless steel. Each ring is closed securely, and the completed bracelet has been tumbled to polish it and remove any burrs that result from the cutting process. The bracelet is a little thicker than my other bracelets, at 5/16 inch (about 8 mm) wide. It is very light weight and perfect for the ladies. If done in a favorite colour, men may like it too.





2. Mario & Princess Wedding Cake Topper by My Custom Cake Topper - $150CAD
