Etsy treasury: Radiant Orchid

While it’s wonderful to be featured in other people’s treasuries, it’s also a lot of fun to curate your own.

‘Radiant Orchid’ by Drakestail

Pantone, the trend-setting company that selects each season’s hottest colours, has named Radiant Orchid as its 2014 Colour of the Year. Watch for this fantastic shade of pinkish-purple on a runway and in shops near you!

Icy Winter Treasury

We’ve been featured in a beautiful, icy winter treasury.  I love treasuries, it’s a great way to create and curate  a collection of items that fit a theme.  Our “Ice Storm” Tree of Life pendant fits nicely in this one, don’t you think?  The curator wrote a poem to go with the treasury as well.



‘Ice Storm’ by a1diamante

The sky cries white tears
Skadi umbrellas the land
The forest freezes
Time will melt away her scars
Idun’s song is whispering

We’ve had a great week!  We’ve officially launched Vintage by Drakestail Jewellery in a second store, the fabulous boutique Rowena.  Edmonton fans of Drakestail, stop by and check out our Vintage line, as well as the great retro-style fashions.

We’ve also added our Vintage line to our Etsy store.  That’s right, not only are our vintage-inspired necklaces, bracelets and earrings available in two great stores, they’re available online now, too.  Think they’d make a great gift?  Choose your favourite colour (black, white, light gold, pink, and lavender), or if you can’t decide, we also have gift certificates.

Giveaway time! Celebrating a Milestone

Drakestail Jewellery was established in 2007 as a couple of friends who had just discovered how much fun it was to make jewellery.  Over the past six years we’ve gone from making jewellery for ourselves and our friends to attending craft and art shows and filling our Etsy shop with our creations.  We’ve just hit a great milestone – 100 items in our Etsy store.

Drakestail giveaway collage

Of course, we think this is cause for celebration, and what better way to celebrate than to share our creativity with you!  We are giving away a $25 gift certificate to our Etsy store.  Sign up and spread the word!
