Do Bats Eat Cats?!

Friday is here once again, and this time it means a weekend at work for me. At least I work night shift Friday & Sunday, which means that at least I get Saturday off!


Since today is the start of the weekend, I wanna share a special shop with you all, one to find something unique to complete your going-out-to-party ensemble!


I found Darlene's shop when she joined the Attack of the Craft forum, and I was quite amazed at her chainmaille jewellry seeing as by the word chainmaille, all the mental images I conjured where Middle Ages and or Lord Of The Rings armor related! And of course, something else that drew me to her shop was the name, right out of my beloved Alice: "Do cats eat bats?, Do bats eat cats?"




So, taking advantage of a sale she offered, I got myself a chainmaille ornament in silver and teal, in the shape of a Celtic star. Absolutely gorgeous! Once I got it I just couldn't stop turning it around in my hand and marveling at how intricate the work is. Seeing them in person really helps you see the amount of work involved in these pieces!






Right now I have my eye on one of her necklaces and a zipper pull, both with Celtic stars designs, you could say I'm quite fond of said design! ;) DO check her shop and you'll understand why!

  8. I also have a bit of an infatuation with chainmaille, although I have yet to purchase anything. It looks like you found the perfect little work of art! The teal and silver look great together, and I see why you're so fond of the Celtic star design.
