Very nicely made ears. I love them. Seller was also very helpful with giving me tips on how to keep the clips in my hair (i have thin straight hair). Beautifully made. Would definitely buy again. And shipping was fast.

looks great and works really well with a hood
A love that feeds life...
I craft and love crafting for two reasons:
The first is that I love the part that crafting plays in my life every day. The materials I work with and processes I undertake help me to be inspired, expressive, and healthy in every sense of the word. My faux furs and fabrics soothe and bring warmth into cold hands. Making jewelry with unusual stones taps my love of geology. Seeking out new materials gets me into communities of other crafters. Seeking out inspiration gets me back with nature. Crafting gives me an outlet for a need to create that I've had since childhood.
The second reason for my love of crafting is that I love seeing the effect of my work on others. My costume pieces have helped the formerly shy of all ages express their inner animal, or completed a long-sought look for dedicated cosplayers. My hats keep ears warm while bringing a smile to those passing by. My jewelry has become heartfelt gifts or means of personal expression. It's always rewarding to hear about people who take my work and make it their own! Their stories keep me motivated, and their requests for custom items challenge me to create things I might not have imagined up otherwise.
Saurian Studios opened online in 2010, as a means to fund my crafting hobby and expand out in new directions. I've taken my work across the country, spanning from my kitchen table to anime conventions. The dragon in the logo is Zelda, one of a set of characters that have lived in my head since childhood. I look forward growing my business in lock step with my crafting skills and range. All in all I'm grateful for all of my sources of inspiration, and a little bit of free time to make them into things both beautiful and meaningful!
