Hello! It's been a long time.

So much has been happening, and I am excited to finally tell you all about it. This summer has been full of an unexpected amount of sewing. I've been fortunate enough to begin creating several custom suits for a client with bold and elegant taste

I have been staying on track with my historical reproduction work. I made a very exciting medieval reproduction knights belt in May and a medieval reproduction necklace, which I frankly had a hard time giving up. I have also been keeping busy with lots of fun historical costuming for a big medieval adventure, which is coming up soon. I am proud to now be featured in two stores in Toronto, Erietta Boutique at 320 Danforth Avenue, and starting this May, DesignNook at 2038 Danforth Avenue. Both stores have a different selection of my pieces, and if you ever want to see things in person, I encourage you to visit these great locations. There is lots of new jewelry listed in the Shop section, and I feel like I am inundated with new ideas every day. I have a few very exciting craft shows scheduled for the fall, so I hope you will stay tuned for exciting new developments. I promise to blog more regularly in the future. :-)

I also had the exciting privilege of creating my dear friend's wedding dress for her recent wedding. I have known her my whole life, and it was a joy to help make her wedding dreams a reality, and to be part of her and her husband's beautiful celebration of love. Speaking of love, I have had a few fun and exciting wedding and engagement ring projects over the last few months, which you can view in the Wedding and Engagement section.
