Thank you, Joe Sherry and Fem Bones, for some awesome photos!
We recently completed a pair of extra long gauntlets with our dwindling supply of mirror gold scales. Just gorgeous!!!

About

From Lawyer to Fiber Artist

About 6 years ago, my sister-in-law reintroduced me to knitting, which I had tried as a child but quit soon after. As knitting quickly grew into my passion, I started weaving as well under the direction of Melissa Johnson, an incredible fiber artist. My children soon became overwhelmed with all my knitted gifts so they suggested I share my knitting through an Etsy shop.

What started as a hobby quickly grew into my profession. So now I knit and weave full time as well as produce costumes and props for Boston burlesque community and local cosplayers. I have a website that shows off my prop building, costume design, weaving and other interesting stuff. You can find that website at http://mamabones.weebly.com/index.html

I have three incredible children who encouraged me to open this store. My eldest is a producer and dancer in Salem. Her troupe, the Slaughterhouse Sweethearts, performs often in the Boston/Cambridge area. My son is a 17 year old drag queen who performs as Cherry Poppins in Western Mass . My youngest daughter hopes to be an animal physical therapist but for now concentrates on ballet, fashion and making scale mail earrings. They are all models for many of my items.

I work out of my home, an 1889 Victorian that I love. I hope you enjoy looking around my shop and find something that is perfect for you. I love to develop patterns and custom designs, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you want something "different."

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Sizing for gauntlets is as follows:

Measure the circumference of your hand just below the knuckles. 6 1/2" - 7" is a small, 7" - 7 1/2" is a medium, 7 1/2"-8" is a large and 8"-9" is an extra large.

How durable is DragonSwag for larping?

I have made both gauntlets and full sleeve shrugs for several larpers. I have not had any complaints regarding durability so far.
