    Resin!

    After years of seeing all the cool things you can do with resin, I finally took the plunge and bought my first bottle. Originally planning on trying it as a fun craft to do with the kids over March break, I quickly saw how much fun I could have making jewelry. From custom resin shakers to adorable mini Starbucks earrings, I have lots of new, fun things planned.

    Launching Dragonfly Baby!

    Excited to share some news! While I’ve been busy expanding my family, I’ve also been taking a bit of a break from chainmaille. Once I’ve had a little more sleep and don’t run on coffee, I’ll pick up my pliers again, but in the meantime, I’ve been keeping busy making cute baby things. So I thought I’d share! Launching in mid-March, we’ll be showcasing some funky drool bandana bibs and a selection of custom made teething jewelry at a local cafe (and online too!). Stay tuned for more photos!

    Spring flowers

    After a very long (and still ongoing winter), I’m looking to put a little spring cheer in the air. I fell in love with these little teeny scales, and am excited that I finally figured out how to put these little flowers together. At barely 1″ in diameter, these guys are super cute, and make charming little pendants. For sale over on our Facebook page for only $18 (with free shipping in Canada!) Head on over there, or send me an email, and I’d be happy to send some spring your way!

    Sterling silver

    After being challenged to the five day art challenge by the lovely Annie over at Studio Luma, I was inspired to round up some more sterling silver wire, and finish up a project that had been sitting on my bench for way too long. I rigged up my bench block, waxed up my jeweler’s saw, and got to cutting some fresh rings. A quick trip in the tumbler later, and this bracelet was finally finished! The simple inverted round pattern makes this a really elegant bracelet, and I decided to finish it off with a simple sterling silver lobster clasp. Just about 7.5″ long, and only 3/8″ in diameter, it’s…

    The New Graphic Collection is here!

    Being a graphic designer, it’s always nice to step away from the computer and pick up my pliers to create unique chainmaille pieces. Sometimes, work creeps off my screen an into my jewelry studio. What started off as a small art project, quickly grew into a full collection (that’s still growing). Combining my love of all things graphic, vintage and typography, I’m happy to introduce the Graphic Collection. Helvetica and Ampersands so far, but more to come. Here’s a few of the pieces created so far. Be sure to friend us over on Facebook to see more of the pieces in the works.

    Open for Business

    Wondering where we’ve been lately? Our Etsy store hasn’t had inventory in a while. We’ve been selling a lot locally, while also debating, researching and speaking to fellow crafters about the best places to sell online. With Etsy’s policy changes, it’s no longer just hand made. While it is a global marketplace, it’s also quickly becoming a place where you can find cheaply made imported product. This is driving the cost of things on Etsy down, and we just can’t compete. We make all our pieces by hand, just us three Dragonfly Girls. We love to meet our customers in person, and are always happy make adjustments and take custom…

    Summer’s here!

    After a long winter and wet spring, we’ve finally got some nice weather happening. Summer’s here, and we’re packing up our rings and trying to get some ‘mailling done while on the road. Not always an easy task, but satisfying when you finally put that last ring in place. Also have a new pattern that we’ve been working on (Clockwork), with some great new colours. In case I haven’t mentioned how much I love Hyperlynks jump rings yet, they’re seriously awesome. Nothing like a good Canadian business, with a great product at great prices. It can sometimes be a challenge to shop local, but it just makes it all that…
