Reopening Soon!

The date of the grand reopening is coming soon.  We close on our house in just over a week!  We will be setting up and then moving the remainder of our stuff that is currently sitting in a storage unit, during the month of January.

Hopefully, either by the end of the month, I will at least have things set up so that I can reopen the studio.  Then once that is done, my supplies will be making their way into the studio and new creations will be coming soon.  It is not long now and things are moving at quite a quick pace.

So stick around and see what amazing things are heading into the Nightmaiden studios.

Future Outlook

So it looks like things may be coming to a head soon with the moving issues.  I really have to start busting my behind to get things finished packing up since it looks like if all goes well, we have a closing date of just after the new year.

I still have a ton of work to do before then.  I did at least work on the chainmaille initial for my friends son and it came out amazing.  I can't wait to make the final piece in stainless steel rings.  It'll end up being a keychain since he really gets uncomfortable with necklaces and well, any chain around his neck.  I still need to start working on my other friends pieces but I am at a loss as to my exact design plans.  

I can't wait to get into the new home and especially into the new studio!  This will be an excellent feeling and then I can open my two other shops, Gothic Gypsy Photography and No Restraints Maille.  I am so excited for both these ventures and the expanding business.

Once I get the finished pieces for each projects, I will post photos.

Christmas Pressies

So I have been working on an order for a great friend of mine and decided to throw in some extras for her. Being that her son is an amazing teenager, I figured I would do something sweet for him too. The designs are hopefully going to come out right and I will be able to finish then and get them out by the holidays. 

Not only am I working on that project, I am also working on one for my other bestest friend. She has a special, very distinguishable, look for her travel gear and I thought I would add to that by making her some jewelry that would match and she could have a whole ensemble for when she travels. 

Now, on top of all that, I am working on a custom order from a repeat customer. This lady brings me some of the most interesting and gorgeous designs to make for her and I am truly honored that she thinks f me each time.

So, as if this wasn't a normal work load, I am working with limited supplies as most of my stuff is already packed up and sitting in a storage unit in Myrtle Beach, SC. While I am sitting in Virginia, working on a move to Tampa, Florida. 

I have a feeling that this is going to be a busy month for me and as I finish projects, I will post pictures of them as I can, as long as they won't ruin the surprise of the giftee. 

On top of all of this, I am still going to be shooting photos for my Gothic Gypsy photography studio as well as working on building up supplies for my Chainmaille Bondage studio, No Restraints. So, a busy little bee, I will be for a little while. But things are in the works and pretties will once again populate my life.
