"So, a meeple and a drill press walk into a bar..."
Back in 2000, I had my first beaded jewelry making lesson from some of the best in an artist's community in the mountains of north Arkansas. I'm still at it today! I teach jewelry making courses and have worked for 4 great bead shops throughout the mid-south.
Carcassonne was the first board game I learned to play outside the realm of Monopoly and Scrabble. Meeples, little wooden people shaped pieces, will always be my favorite game bits.
In 2010, a friend and owner of Labyrinth Puzzles & Games in Washington, DC mentioned in passing that game piece earrings would be fun. I agreed! I agreed so much so that I was the owner of a shiny new drill press a few days later. Many meeples were bravely sacrificed while I learned how to make them into charming little accessories: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pkm_eUUKvEM
I still make lots of accessories outside of the board game milieu - but they all have a fun (and sometimes silly) flair. If you're lucky, you'll see the occasional knit chicken hat in stock!
I take pride in the time and skill I put into each piece. I also work hard to keep them affordable without sacrificing quality materials. I make sure my materials are consistent, and that I know my suppliers well.
Most importantly, I want you to have as much fun wearing these pieces as I had making them! I keep adding new items simply because I have a good time designing and making them :)
