I am very excited to be part of this “Wrapped in Courage” event on Saturday March 19th here in Winnipeg. Proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities in support of helping victims of domestic violence. If you have some free time between 10 AM and 5 PM please come by and say hello!
This past Saturday, Trish and I had the pleasure of setting up our lovely jewellery at the Bizarre Bazaar at Zaphod Beeblebrox. We were treated to a great DJ, the bar was open, and we had a fantastic, eclectic group of vendors to hang out with. I picked up a handful of goodies for myself, including some sriracha popcorn and some cute charms that I’ll be working into some jewellery. Our shoppers were some brave, hardy souls, coming out despite the -40C weather. It was loads of fun, despite the cold!
We had our (for real this time) last show of the season on Saturday! Zaphod’s in Ottawa hosted the Bizarre Bazaar and it was fun!
The lights were low, music was playing, everyone was relaxed and having a great time!
There were so many items you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else (and I don’t just mean us) There was vintage clothing, custom buttons, love maps, vinyl records turned into art, and our good friend Maiden Star.
I danced in the booth, finished my Christmas shopping, met some new people and caught up with old friends. This was a very fun and relaxed show!
Are you sorry you missed it? Rumour has it that there will be another show February 13th. It’ll be just in time to remember about Valentine’s Day.
Need your Drakestail Jewellery fix before then? Never fear! We’re still booking Home Jewellery Parties! We’ll set up a boutique your place, you’ll invite some friends, and we’ll all have a fabulous time!
This past Saturday we set up at Rideau High in Ottawa for their Crafts for Christmas fair!
There was a great variety of vendors and it was a wonderful fundraiser for the Rideau High Band!
Now, we thought this would be our last show of the season. But SURPRISE! We have one more Ottawa show left in us!
On Saturday, December 19th we will be at the Bizarre Bazaar pop up at Zaphod Beeblebrox, 27 York street in the Ottawa Market. We’re running 12pm to 5pm and the bar is open. There will be items and vendors you won’t find at anywhere else! Come do some last minute shopping without the craziness of the mall. It just might be the most relaxing 6-days-before-Christmas purchase you ever make!
And bring a donation for the Ottawa Food Bank, there will be a collection at the door.
What do you think when I say “custom”? If you’re thinking of having something custom made, you may be thinking that it will cost a small fortune. That might be true when talking about mass produced items, but here at Drakestail Jewellery, we do things a little differently.
We do custom work. We LOVE custom work! There’s a great feeling knowing exactly where your hard work is going, and that it’s going to be PERFECT!
You probably know by now that everything we create is lovingly hand made. Very few pieces AREN’T one of a kind. So what’s the difference between what we’re selling and that perfect design floating around inside your head? Not much, really.
So, the big question… how do we charge custom orders? Same way we charge everything else. If you found it in your head or in our booth, it’s the same. There’s no need for us to charge more because our basic process hasn’t changed.
Do you have a particular design in mind? Or just a half decided feel of what you want? We’ll work one on one with you to discover your personal style, and your budget, to create a piece that will make you feel fabulous! There’s really no reason not to find the perfect fit for you.
