Announcement    We usually make a shop announcement once a year, but not in 2020. This year is calling us to step up on so many levels. Black Lives Matter to us, no question. We are 95% more alike genetically then we are different and we honor all human life. We are so blessed to have such a diverse family of humans wearing our art all over the planet! We are in full support of the current movement happening in our country to bring justice to all the BIPOC families who've lost loved ones at the hands of a corrupt militarized police force. We stand with you, we are listening and we are your allies.

"May the BIPOC of our world be Safe and Protected, May they be Contented and Pleased, May their physical bodies support them with Strength and May all BIPOC lives unfold smoothly with ease."

May it be so.

We love you, we are sorry, please forgive us and thank you.

Thank you for visiting! We appreciate your purchase from our shop more than ever, as 90% of our yearly income is from In-Person sales at events all over the West Coast. We are definitely navigating these new challenging circumstances with a smile and a prayer! 90% of what we earn yearly has disappeared and all our shows have been canceled until 2021 due to the pandemic. This severely impacts our family of 5, so every sale we make right now helps us put food on the table, keep the electricity on and keep us moving forward.

We've also been running an Artist Collective Fundraiser to help not only ourselves survive, but 11 other Small Handcraft Art Businesses that are in the same exact boat. Learn more here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/united-handcraft-artists-fund

We've been shocked to see many Grants that are only available for fine art, musicians and performers, but NOTHING for handcraft artists. We are determined to come out the other side of this situation successfully and having survived. After all, we've worked for nearly a decade to build this beautiful business. Please consider buying something, as it truly means the difference between us being able to afford groceries or not.

We are also helping a dear friend with Stage 4 Cancer get through this rough time. The proceeds for all the incredible Vintage you see being added to our shop go to help her. She has impeccable taste in vintage, great prices and incredible quality. We are stepping up to help her get all her inventory online to support her treatments and her well being. Every time you purchase a vintage piece from our Etsy shop your dollars directly contribute to helping fight breast cancer. Please take a moment to check out Ilene's blog at https://cancerbus.com/ where you can join her and over 2000 readers in furthering the discussion and raising awareness. Ilene is thriving and living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, she is truly an inspiration and we are so grateful to have her in our lives.

Stay Safe out there, Remember to Breathe, Be Well, This Too Shall Pass, In Solidarity, With Love and Gratitude, Our Hearts are with you all!
Blessings,
Azalyne & Aurelius (+3 teens & 1 Kitty)

The small caterpillar of a business known as Feathery Leathery (our original incarnation Est. 2011) wove an intricate chrysalis in which we began fine-tuning our designs and mastering our craft. Creating hours of endless art, hand-drafting patterns inspired by our magic, love for nature and our multidimensional cosmic selves. Ever whimsical, ever joyfully exploring the textures of silk, nuno and lace combined with leather. Until transformation was complete and Astral Chrysalis Designs spread its wings and emerged in 2014. From our humble beginnings as mask makers to the present moment, we have an all-original design repertoire of 50+ designs. Aside from being deeply in love with the process of creating our art, we are also still madly in love with each other and are excited to share that in 2015 we were handfasted in Ireland. We are so grateful to be back and so blessed to share our art with the world!

The re-incarnation of our shop is quite eclectic and you will find *In Stock One of a Kind Items* for sale, alongside CUSTOM/MADE TO ORDER limited edition item listings. Additionally, we have a new section of offerings for all the Etsy crafters out there! In this section, we will be offering our intricate original art leather filigree remnants for sale, as well as bags of scrap leather for a steal!

In-stock items, leather filigree hides and scrap bags will all ship 2-3 business days from the time of purchase. Custom/Made to Order listings typically take 2-3 weeks to complete and ship. We wish we could get these items out faster, but we are only two people creating everything with our own hands, in our home, while raising 3 teens!! If you need your piece by a specific date please convo us before ordering, so we may confirm our ability to make the item in time for your special event.

If you are an International Customer and need your item quickly, please convo us before purchasing, so we can make sure your needs are in alignment with the reality of our production schedule.

FREE SHIPPING ON US ORDERS for most of our items! Questions~please convo us!

We are excited to be a long-time member of the *Fantasy Artists of Etsy Team*, also popularly known as "FAEteam", please check out the incredible art of our fellow members' by going here: www.etsy.com/search?q=faeteam

On Etsy since 2011

We create gorgeous one of a kind original pieces of wearable leather art. Seriously, it's practically all we do and we love it!

When Azalyne and Aurelius serendipitously met they were awe struck by the spark. Bringing illuminated vision to each other's creativity, they decided to co-create high vibration wearable artwork forged in inspiration, artistry and expertise.

Aw-'Muse'-ing as the conversation was, half-joking Azalyne expressed a desire to create one of a kind feather adornments, "Feathery," she stated. Laughing, Aurelius replied "and Leathery," which just so happened to be his creative forte. Thus Feathery Leathery was born, an illustrious combination of the elements of earth and sky.

Within the magical realm of Faerieworld's 2010 the idea of Feathery Leathery was birthed & nurtured. It is truly amazing the magic that can happen when you choose to align with source energy, put out positivity, flow with creative inspiration and hold a vibration of high integrity~the result has been immense abundance and profound connections. We feel unbelievably blessed to see our co-created vision fully manifest out of so much love and attention. All has come full circle. So grateful to each of you!!!

Do you have a creative vision you would like to see manifested into a one of a kind wearable art piece? Send us a message and tell us about it~we love the inspiration we receive with each custom order, such gifts of vision come from each customer. Yet at the same time let us inspire you, we are very very good at it. We are ready to co-create with you!

It is beyond exciting to be able to create what lives in our cosmically divine hearts & soul (yes, twin flames here)~*~living our bliss is so delicious...

Blessings~Azalyne & Aurelius

“We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.”
― Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Poems of Arthur O'Shaughnessy

Welcome to Astral Chrysalis Designs, Formerly Feathery Leathery, the lovechild of Azalyne Skye and Aurelius Rune.

Yup, we are back at long last, having taken an Etsy hiatus since 2013! We are unbelievably excited to share all our newest designs with you and return to offering our handmade wearable art creations to the Etsy community. FYI, Feathery Leathery isn't actually gone, rather it has become the mask making side of our leathercraft business, under the umbrella of Astral Chrysalis Designs. Our craft is born out of our connection to nature, and draws inspiration from the Elementals, Cosmic, Elven, Faerie Realms and of course our Wild Visionary Imaginings!

The new incarnation of our Etsy shop includes some changes! We will continue to offer One of a Kind pieces, but will now also offer Custom/Made to Order Limited Edition pieces. The Limited Edition items will change seasonally and once the small amount listed sell out, they will no longer be available. Please know our fingerprint is in each and every one of our creations. Coming up with new designs, creating mostly one of a kinds and developing our techniques has taken immense commitment, time, resources, energy and money. We do our very best to make our art affordable, while also honoring the hard work, love and magic that has been infused into each design.

We are proud to be artists who are aspiring to sustain ourselves thru our creativity. We hope you are inspired by our work and invite you to contact us with any questions or requests.

Blessed Be~
Azalyne & Aurelius
