So after a long sabbatical in Midterm Metropolis, and sore hands later --- BABY, I'M BACK! I finally got rid of school, so now I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things. The swing of Bend & Snap things, that is. :)

It's been a really long time, hasn't it?

In recovery of celebrations, and one too many meals and drinks taken, here's some stuff i made:

bronze angel wing chain necklace

"Leafy Golds"
yellow and green leaf pendants on gold chain

silver chain necklace with dangling leaves

I'm freshly stocked, but I suggest you ORDER NOW BEFORE THEY'RE GONE!
Check back for more stuff this week! There's more merriment to come. :)

DIY: Chain of Cool

Enlightened by the gods of rock, heavy metal abides by the code of conduct --- that indeed, more is more. So stop being the weakest link and become battle-ready with the layered chain look!
K D' Angelo Designs, $120

Danijo "Lennon", $420



Since I can't afford those I figured it's best to DIY. Just pile some old links (or chain belts) and you’re ready to toughen up your basic tee. Look, I joined the chain gang too!

TADA! :)

XOXO, Risa

I've sold all my florally clips and headbands from the "I'm A Little Teapot" post. All together now, In Glue We Trust! To make things easier for you, here's what's left in my store:

"Yes she can-can-can" feather clip

And of course, made to order goodness like:
Feather necklaces

Now all you have to do is click, look, like and buy.

Off to study,
Risa :)
