So my husband I are both huge Firefly nerds and I wanted to try my hand at something I had never tried before, something I didn't have a pattern for, and something I had only seen in a different (knit) medium.
Thus, the Jaynemaille hat was born. Over 20 hours of my life weaving and tweaking to get the colors to lay at the right part of the head and I'll probably never do something so crazy again 😂
(Less impressive mentions are my Wonder Woman scale top and scale Winter Soldier arm lol)

I thought it would be fun to make some Harry Potter house themed scalemaille pieces. This was my Slytherin inspired piece.

This Cheshire Cat necklace is one of my favorite pieces I've ever made. Was created for a design challenge in a sales group I was auditioning for and was a great way to use up all those little stashes of extra rings left over from other projects that didn't match new batches.

I made this scalemaille inlay of Boba Fett for a friend who has been a big Star Wars fan his entire life. It was my first time creating something like this, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out!

My piece is fairly simple and revolves around the pendant that I wanted to feature which has the Alexis quote from Schitt's Creek "Love that journey for me." I just adore her character and her growth throughout the show, and I like the chaos of the random colored JPL paired with that line given the chaos of their lives at the start of the show.

I might make changes to the necklace in the future as I was originally intending to include a small rose charm and a big floppy hat charm that I ordered online, but I'm kind of digging the simplicity of it as it is now.

This is one of my favorite sets! It's simple candy cane weave bracelet with a lock and key clasp paired with double mobius earrings in matching colors all with dna strands and "live long and prosper🖖" tags charms in tibetan silver. My inspiration is my mom. She was my Star Trek mentor (she passed in 2012) and this is definately something she would've loved 😍 so I made it. I can make more but the bracelets will have different toggles, so this is a one of a kind set. I would hate to ever let it go haha but maybe one day.... 😅

This piece was inspired by Bram Stoker's Dracula. It has that Victorian feel and the heart is staked and bleeding. It is now owned by a lovely Goth DJ in Denmark. 🖤

Inspired by the jewelry in a lot of the movies that King's and Princes wear.

I have been a fan of Spyro the Dragon ever since I got my first copy of the game back in 1999 and with that I got obsessed with dragons, so I just had to make a Baby dragon inspired by him :) I will make a Cynder one soon aswell ^^

I love working with people's fandoms due to their passions. I make things to help people feel connected to their passions and be able to show them off to others. I've made many things based on movies, but this one still is one of my favorites.

Tyrus, aka George Murdoch, aka The Funkasaurus former Wrestler and now Political Commentator wears one of those gaudy, cheesy big phat spiral necklaces and I always wanted to get him wearing one of mine. I made this over-the-head infinity Spiral 6 in 1 in darkened stainless to wear myself and channel my inner Tyrus.
