Welcome to a Month of Fantasy and Adventure

What can you imagine? What can you create?

I'm pleased to welcome you to a time of magic and wonder here on Facet Jewelry: a Month of Fantasy and Adventure! Throughout April, we'll be featuring projects and stories about jewelry that comes from a place of imagination. Maybe you're getting ready for the Renaissance Faire, or Comic-Con. What is the perfect piece of jewelry that makes your costume complete?

Maybe you're a fan of a particular franchise: books, comics, television, movies. How do you wear your fandom pride? Necklaces, pins, or something even more dramatic?

OR maybe you just love dragons! Whatever part of the fantasy or science fiction or adventure universe you enjoy, we will do our best to set your imagination on fire with ideas and projects that you can make. Here's a sneak peek at the plan:

 The week of April 17, we will turn our attention to COSPLAY and COMIC-CONS. New to the world of cosplay? Can't quite figure out what all the fuss is about? We will get you up-to-speed and give you some great projects to complete your steampunk ensemble or make your costume inspired by Star Wars characters a touch more authentic. 

And finally, on the week of April 24, we'll talk about FANDOM. Want to make a necklace featuring the cover of your favorite book? How about a beautiful little wire version of Hedwig, to honor the best owl ever featured in film and literature? Ready for the Red Woman to return on your favorite HBO show??  We'll have you covered, but also help you navigate through the world of trademarks and copyrights, and what will get you kicked off of Etsy!

 Keep checking back on Facet throughout the month as we will post new blogs, articles, projects and galleries sure to jumpstart your imagination. What can you create?

The week of April 3 will feature MAGICAL CREATURES. Dragons, trolls, gnomes, and pixies will all come to life via beads, clay, chain mail and more. We're thrilled to announce a wonderful book from our friend Jane Danley Cruz called Dragons, Crystals & Chainmaille: Jewelry Designs to Inspire Your Imagination that will delight anyone who loves the place where fantasy ad jewelry intersect. 

The week of April 10 will focus on RENAISSANCE FAIRES. Stay tuned for a fantastic article about a Day at Faire from Juli McCarthy, a long-time jewelry vendor at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Bristol, WI, and owner of the store Maiden Bedlam in Elgin, IL. Get insight on what it's like to make and sell jewelry with a spiritual connection, and to interact with people who come to learn more about the days of yore!
