New craft and sewing venue in Wellington, Made Marion Craft, has the best location ever (just off of Cuba Street), is offering a dazzling range of classes, and has craft studio space for you and your group.
Hatred of gender based marketing. Yes. This.
Discovery of the week: RECYCLED BULLET SHELL JEWELRY IS A THING. Brass casings combined with delicious minerals for industrial/quasi-steampunk flair – where has this been all my life? And your life? One comment I get from several friends is that, when it comes to jewelery, they like larger “statement” pieces. Fortuitously there are bullet shell jewels from 22 to 45 caliber, 1 to 4 inches long, for all tastes, from hardcore goths to delicate romantics. I don’t mind if everybody I know gets one – an army of lovers can never be defeated.
In Wellington, instant bullet shell jewelery gratification is available at Madame Fancy Pants. And if you want a custom-made piece of bullet shell jewelery, with a recycled casing from your very own gun (or that of a loved one), contact Things Unseen, New Zealand’s steampunk jeweler extraordinaire.
I succumbed to one from PrairieFairy on Etsy.
I also liked the ones from ElleDeeNOLA.
